The NFL is in the process of rescheduling games due to Covid-19. We break down the changes each week.

The NFL made it through three complete weeks of football before Covid-19 created issues for the schedule. The Tennessee Titans were the first outbreak and that has since been followed by an outbreak for the New England Patriots.

The league already rescheduled Titans-Steelers from Week 4 to Week 7. To accommodate that, the NFL moved Steelers-Ravens from Week 7 to Week 8 and moved the Ravens bye to Week 7.

We have been tracking each game that gets adjusted, and will continue to do so, but with more rescheduling likely to happen, it’s time to start tracking the full league schedule each week as changes happen.
