This weekend, the first round of the NFL League playoffs will kick off, in which 12 teams will take part.

Last season's champion Kansas City Chiefs and NFC champion Green Bay Packers have already secured their participation and will join next week's game round.



As in other sports, the NFL has considered shortening the game season and running a "bubble" in which the teams will play.

However, after the intervention team owners decided that the meetings will be held between teams stadiums, with a small amount or no audience expect at all, following a rise in US morbidity corona virus.



Eventually the NFL is the only sports league in the world was able to complete an entire season games ( 256 games), which is further proof of its power, for those who were looking for one.On the other hand, with the exception of two or three "big" games, the feeling is that a rifle could have been given up.



Despite the lukewarm opening in terms of ratings, given the virus and social protests that took place last summer, football is still considered an "all-American" game and is of course the most popular sport in the country, contrary to our perception in Israel.

By comparison, the world's best basketball league, the NBA, is only third in the US ratings.

In second place is the Baseball League (MLB).

During the regular season, an average of 14 million Americans watched NFL games, a figure that is expected to rise as the Super Bowl event approaches.

On the other hand, seasonal average averaging a nine percent decline.



The waves of protest also left their mark on the football games, and quite a few players and team members of the various teams decided to kneel at the beginning of each game, as a sign of identification with the victims.

In a similar vein was Washington's announcement of the removal of "Redskins" from the group's name, to prevent harm to the Native American community, after years of the group's owners claiming the name was "not racist."

Checks, as mentioned, devoured the cards in this case as well.



On top of that, many actors have immortalized the names of victims of police violence on their helmets, and there are some who have adorned their acting shoes with the characters of those who demanded justice for them.



Corona, also here in the



wake of the Corona crisis, which continues to make waves around the world and in the US, most games this season have been played without crowds, which has raised ratings, though they were played in parallel with the NBA basketball season. Despite the virus spreading, many teams will host important games Most of the season with crowds, for the first time this



season.Only last week, after securing its place in the playoffs, the Buffalo Bills received approval to hold its first playoff game since 1995 in the presence of 6,772 fans.Everything will of course happen according to New York State guidelines. Equip with a form that proves a negative corona test and will be scattered throughout the huge stadium, which on a normal day can accommodate more than 70,000 spectators.

A final decision has not yet been made regarding the attendance of spectators at the big game of the season (February 7), but it seems that the stadium in Tampa will not be full of 65,000 people.

As of this writing, only a limited number of TV crews will be allowed to watch the game up close, with the league management announcing that medical teams that have already received the vaccine for Corona will receive tickets as a token of appreciation for their hard work in fighting the virus.



A record of 17 years



Another exciting event will also be experienced by Cleveland Browns fans, who advanced to the playoffs for the first time since 2002. Unfortunately, the team was slated to play against the excellent Pittsburgh Steelers.



Here, too, the corona will play a significant role, following the announcement that the coach and four team members (including two coaches and two players) have been diagnosed as positive for the virus.

The training complex was closed, and as a result, preparations for the match were hampered.

However, for now, the game is expected to take place as planned.

Brady's return



What was not written on the Tampa Bay quarterback.

Earlier this week, 43-year-old Tom Brady became the first player in history to reach 40-plus completes more than 40 touchdowns in the regular season (with 65.7 percent accuracy).



The phenomenon's move to the team at the start of the season is probably the main reason for the Bakers' promotion to the playoffs for the first time in 13 years, but it seems that the road to the Super Bowl that will take place at their home stadium will be difficult and very long.



So who will win?



There is no doubt that the lack of fans at the games has greatly influenced last season's lukewarm season on the NFL, which has provided us with quite a few delusional stories, from the forced San Francisco move to play in Arizona due to the Corona eruption in the Gulf to the closure of team training complexes.

There is no doubt that the 2020/21 season will be remembered for generations.



According to all predictions in the US, the winner this season will be one of the two regional league champions: Green Bay Packers and Kansas City Chips. The road to the title, as mentioned, will start tomorrow night.
