The 2020 NFL season begins on Thursday, September 10. Click here to stream Chiefs vs. Texans live now. The Houston Texans head to Kansas City, Missouri to take on the Kansas City Chiefs—the defending Super Bowl Champions—in the season opening game. Coverage begins at 7:00 p.m. ET on NBC with Football Night in America.

Unlike the MLB and NHL, the NFL will not have its players living in a quarantined bubble. Instead the league is trusting players to follow COVID-19 safety measures on their own.  Based on the collective bargaining agreement reached in July between the NFL and the NFL players association, athletes can be fined for being in populous settings like indoor night clubs, indoor concerts, or indoor church services that allow attendance above 25 percent of capacity.

Things will even look different within the stadium this year as pandemic protocol prohibits sideline reporters and on-field entertainment including cheerleaders and mascots. However, the league will allow each team to determine its stadium’s fan attendance. The NFL is even reducing the number of employees that teams can take on the road. A maximum of 70 staff members may travel to road games.
