The Raiders’ latest run-in with COVID-19 has resulted in their Sunday game being flexed out of prime time. The next question is whether the game will be moved to Monday or Tuesday.
The Raiders surely would prefer a delay, given that they are missing key pieces during the practice week as the enhanced pandemic protocols knock out players who were exposed to players who tested positive. The Buccaneers surely would prefer to proceed on Sunday, given that they’ll be more likely to win if the Raiders aren’t ready or if they are shorthanded.
Bucs coach Bruce Arians is prepared for the possibility of the game moving from Sunday at 4:05 p.m. ET.
