The NFL needs a playoff bubble to protect against coronavirus

The Deets is a weekday morning dose of commentary — delivered at 7 a.m. — from sports columnist Dieter Kurtenbach that wraps up everything important in the world of sports and looks forward to another crazy day ahead.

I know the NFL wants to expand its footprint. Teams play games on Thursday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday in the league’s quest for total television domination.

But Tuesday Night Football? That’s a bridge too far.

Unfortunately, the NFL on Tuesday is not the half-baked idea of some television executive — it’s the best route the NFL has to ensure the Tennessee Titans can play their Week 5 game amid a coronavirus outbreak that’s now at 23 known cases.

The NFL had nothing but time to learn the lessons of other sports leagues as it pertained to playing amid a pandemic, but in typical NFL fashion, it did its own thing, believing it’s better than the other leagues by default.

No regular-season bubble, national or regional. No schedule cushion. It’s mostly really business as usual for the NFL.

Roger Goodell needs to change that ahead of the playoffs. The league needs a postseason bubble.
