With coronavirus spreading around the United States and the world, it's been far from a normal year. It's looking more likely things will not be completely the same in the NFL this fall either.

The NFL has insisted that crowds will be in the stands for the 2020 season, but on Tuesday, a reporter offered Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan a hypothetical situation in which instead of fans, the NFL allowed teams to pump in fake crowd noise in an effort to keep the same gameday atmosphere with social distancing. Smartly, Ryan very politely declined to offer a comment on whether the league should make an exception for fake crowd noise this season.
