NFL football on Saturday and Sunday?

The National Football League would consider playing football games on Saturday if the college football season is canceled or delayed, according to a report from the NY Post:

Per the report from NYPost’s Andrew Marchand:

“The NFL has had preliminary discussions with its broadcast partners about the idea. An NFL spokesman declined comment.

While the majority of the week’s schedule would remain on Sundays, along with the primetime Monday and Thursday slates, some stand-alone games could be reset for Saturdays. The NFL will only consider the move if there is no college football. It is still unclear if college football will be played this fall because of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The NFL is no different than any other sports league across the world that is trying their best to determine options of how to proceed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
