Well, football fans, the NFL Preseason has been trimmed from four games to two.
The least enjoyable part of the NFL season has been cut from the usual four games to only two games. This move includes the cancellation of the famous Pro Football Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio, usually held in early August.
It has been rumored and is now official. The weeks the NFL is canceling are weeks one and four. That only leaves one road game and one home game for every team.
According to commissioner Roger Goodell the reason for this move is to reduce travel and exposing others from COVID-19.
Is This A Problem?
It kind of is a problem because the NFL had initially been all in for the 2020 season by holding a virtual NFL Draft and canceling camps in April and May. Now it looks like the league is going in another direction by canceling three weeks of “practice” games. Brandon McManus, a Super Bowl player for the Broncos tweets that there may be either one or zero games.
As of now, all 32 NFL teams will report to training camp on July 28. The exhibition games don’t start until August 20, 2020, and end on August 30, 2020. The kickoff game of 2020 will be on September 10, 2020, when the Kansas City Chiefs host the Houston Texans.
