We were so close to not having any games rescheduled in Week 7. That all changed when Raiders offensive tackle Trent Brown tested positive for the coronavirus. On top of that, the entire offensive line has been placed on the reserve/COVID list. The game was originally slated for Sunday Night Football on NBC but has been moved to the afternoon slate of games. Jon Gruden and the Raiders will host Tom Brady and the Buccaneers for the first time in Las Vegas at 4:05 p.m. on FOX.
Every other game that has been rescheduled has been moved to another date. This is the fourth week in a row where there was a postponed or rescheduled game. It is not clear how moving the game up just a couple of hours in the day is going to help this situation.
These teams are surprising a lot of pundits so far this season. The Raiders beat the defending champs in their last game but got beat handedly by the Patriots who are still struggling with cohesion after Brady left for Tampa.
As for the Buccaneers, they lost to the overachieving Chicago Bears in the last minutes of the game when the greatest quarterback of all time inexplicably forgot it was fourth down to end their comeback attempt. Then they went into their game against the Green Bay Packers as considerable underdogs and they won the game by four touchdowns. Both teams possess Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde qualities. Which teams will we see on Sunday?
