It’s also all about daily testing, as health experts around the world have noted since the pandemic started early this yer. Between Aug. 12 and Sept. 19, the NFL has administered 94,091 player tests. Seven have come back positive. Testing and contract tracing are obviously working here.

After initial concern about playing the 2020 season outside of a bubble, things seem to be working out swimmingly for the league.
