Sunday update: Seattle has added six players to the COVID-19 list for Week 15. That makes eight total, including Tyler Lockett and Alex Collins.

Update: We have a time for Tuesday’s game between the Seahawks and Rams.

The NFL is likely to move Sunday’s 4:25 p.m. ET game between the Seattle Seahawks and Los Angeles Rams to Tuesday, according to Adam Schefter. This is part of the league’s overall juggling of the Week 15 schedule to combat a COVID outbreak across the country.

The Rams had a surge in COVID cases after a big win on Monday night over the Cardinals and had to close their facility. The Seahawks also saw players get put on the reserve/COVID list, leading to more questions about the game. The NFL as a whole went into intensive protocols for the virus as the league tried to navigate this outbreak.

In the previous meeting between the two teams, the Rams won 26-17. This was the same game Russell Wilson injured his hand and had to miss a good chunk of the season. The Seahawks haven’t been the same since offensively, leading to questions about the team’s future. The Rams, meanwhile, continue to look like a force in the NFC.
