  • NFL eyes virtual fans in stadiums for game days (ESPN) - With kickoff nearly a month away, the NFL considers the use of virtual fans in stadiums a viable option for game days, a league source said Thursday. The NFL utilized the practice during the virtual draft in April and has a similar template available in the absence of real fans.
  • Jones on Strahan’s sack record: ‘I don’t think that’s hard to get’ (NFL.com) - Chandler Jones was three-and-a-half sacks away from tying the all-time record of 22.5 set by Michael Strahan. A goose egg in Week 17 negated his chance of topping the record, but after gobbling up 19 total, Jones believes he can break the mark in 2020.
  • NFL bounce-back candidates for 2020 (PFF) - Which players struggled in 2019 but could bounce back in 2020?
