National Football League moves Tampa Bay Buccaneers-Las Vegas Raiders game to Sunday afternoon

Tafur NFL could be singling out the Raiders for several COVID-19 violations

Such as moving the Seahawks-Cardinals to primetime on three days' notice.

The NFL rolled out stricter punishments for teams found in violation of safety protocols earlier this month, and NFL Chief Medical Officer Dr. Allen Sills told reporters on Thursday that the league was further developing its program to identify "high-risk" contacts of COVID-19 positive individuals. Las Vegas placed rookie cornerback Damon Arnette and offensive tackle Trent Brown on the reserve/COVID-19 list this week, all five Vegas starting offensive linemen were sent home on Wednesday and remain quarantined because of having contact with Brown, and safety Johnathan Abram is in isolation.

The Raiders had been scheduled to host Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccanneers in this weekend's Sunday night game.

The NFL moved the Raiders game against the Bucs from prime time to an afternoon slot Sunday in case the game couldn't be played.

Those players are reportedly heading to the reserve/COVID-19 list.


The decision to move the Buccaneers and Raiders game was likely due to the National Football League ensuring that there would be a game played on Sunday night.

But with four starters now back, the team didn't activate any of the practice squad player for Sunday's game.

The Seahawks won't mind the switch to Sunday night in Arizona.

The NFL said in a statement that they still expect the Raiders-Buccaneers game to be played as scheduled, but clearly the league wanted assurance that they wouldn't go without a Sunday-nighter.
