Rams Stop Tampa Bay, Burrow Out For Season, NFL Issues New Requirements
The LA Rams beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 27-24 in the NFL Monday Night Game. Rams QB Jared Goff threw for 376 yards and 3 touchdowns, and Matt Gay kicked the winning 40-yard field goal with 2:36 left. Bucs quarterback Tom Brady was pressured all night from the Rams’ defense, which sealed the deal with Jordan Fuller’s interception with under 2 minutes remaining.
Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow tore the ACL and MCL, along with other structural injuries in his left knee Sunday, according to ESPN, and will miss the rest of the season. Burrow suffered the injury in the third quarter of the Bengals’ 20-9 loss to The Washington Football Team.
And, the NFL has issued new coronavirus requirements, which include that players will now have to wear face masks on the sidelines unless they have their helmet on and are about to enter the game. Positive cases in the league have been on the rise, as is the case around the country. There have been a total of 108 positives among players and staff in the past two testing periods, compared to 146 in the previous 11.
