The 2020 NFL season sits just over a month away, but a few major question marks remain before the season kicks off.

One of the biggest questions heading into the new season revolves around fan attendance. As the country deals with the COVID-19 pandemic, some have wondered if fans would be allowed to attend games.

In the event fans are not allowed to attend, the NFL has an idea in mind. According to a report from ESPN, the league is considering using virtual fans.

Earlier this offseason, the NFL ran its first ever virtual draft. Despite not being in Las Vegas, the draft went about as well as the league could have hoped for.
