This is a big week for the Cleveland Browns. If the Steelers beat the Browns this week they will be eliminated from the playoffs. Unless the Jaguars defeat the Colts which shouldn't happen because the Jaguars are locked in for the First Pick of the 2021 NFL Draft. Some concerning news coming out of Cleveland is that a coach and practice squad player has tested positive for Covid-19 per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network. That means the Browns have had a new Covid-19 case since Saturday.
The Browns have also announced they will be closing their facility down to do contact tracing. On Tuesday the Browns added TE Harrison Bryant, Safety Karl Joseph, and Andrew Sendejo to the reserve/Covid-19 list. That will make the total up to 10 players on the Covid-19 list in Cleveland right now. It would be nearly impossible to postpone this game because the playoffs are right around the corner. The NFL has another issue on their hand involving Covid-19. This would be the third week the Steelers would have to deal with a Covid-19 mess that didn't involve their team for the 2020 season.
