Potential Covid-19 Impact On 2020 NFL Schedule

While the schedule release is a much-needed dose of exciting news for all football fans, there are some major questions marks heading into the 2020 season due to the Coronavirus pandemic. While teams know what teams they'll play, that's about all they know. Whether or not the games happen and if fans are able to attend will depend on how the virus is managed over the next 2-3 months. The league has already canceled all of its International Series games, and the league is rightly considering all possible scenarios.

Based on the varying levels of infection in each NFL city and state, it's possible that some teams may be able to host fans at a reduced capacity while others may not. The Dolphins announced a preliminary plan last week, with a 25% of capacity goal. Based on the below NFL Covid-19 Safety Index, the Dolphins fall within the low-risk category, just barely.
To create the Safety Index, we compared the active cases in each city or state to the national average and then discounted that product by Rt. Rt is a measure of how fast the virus is spreading in each city and state,  most easily tracked through Rt.live.
