The NFL on gameday is going to look a lot different in 2020. Their release of gameday protocols will feature a very different pre and post game routine in the NFL. For the Denver Broncos, it will mean no post-game jersey swaps for Von Miller and, really, no post-game interactions of any kind.

Teams will win or lose the game and head straight to the locker room where there will be no media to interview them and nothing to do but change into street clothes and head back home or to the hotel.

NFL Gameday Protocols

  • Pre-game screening will be utilized. Anyone with a temperature above 100.4 degrees or may have been exposed to COVID-19 will not be permitted to enter the stadium.
  • No post-game interactions within 6 feet of each other.
  • No jersey exchanges between players.
  • Coaches and players don’t have to wear masks on sidelines, but everyone else will be required to wear a mask.
  • On-field fan seating is prohibited.
  • Media banned from the locker room.
