Undefeated Tennessee Titans shut down facility due to positive tests

The NFL has its first COVID outbreak within an organization and it is happening to the best team in the entire league, the undefeated Tennessee Titans.

According to multiple reports, three Titans players and five Titans staffers tested positive for COVID after returning home from the team’s trip to Minnesota. The facility has been shut down and everyone is working from home this week, reportedly all the way through Saturday, which isn’t ideal before the undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers come to town on Sunday.

Now the NFL has a decision to make: force the Titans to proceed as planned with Sunday’s game with no in-person preparation ahead of time; force the Titans to forfeit and award a free victory to the Steelers, a move that would almost certainly have playoff implications; or play the game at a later date, although no later dates have been set aside for COVID make-up games.

Whatever happens, Titan Up.

    The best team in the league is a major stretch.

      It would take something major for them to beat most of the other 3 win teams, and there’s also some 1 loss teams that I can see beating them as well.

    The arrogance of the NFL. We can cancel the NCAA tourney – delay NBA, MLB, etc…AND have an pandemic schedule in flux constantly in College football. But, the NFL season is untouchable? Come on… postpone the game, and any games at risk and edit your damn schedule – EVERYONE ELSE IN THE WORLD HAS
