Rams & Chargers Open NFL’s 2020 COVID-19 Season

NFL Steps Strongly Into Its New & Historic Playing Environment

(East Los Angeles, CA) September 12, 2020 [From The Editor’s Desk]: The long-awaited return of the NFL returns in full, with both longtime and new Rams and Chargers fans eagerly waiting to watch and support their team. Of course, there’s just one gigantic difference from any season they’ve ever played as franchises…our nation is painfully enduring one of the modern-era and present world’s most frightening pandemics we’ve ever known… the dreaded COVID-19 Coronavirus. Let’s all sincerely hope and pray for an abundance of brighter tomorrows as our country moves onward in battling this crisis.

For the past (6)months we’ve seen most of the American Pro teams, by their respective disciplines, take to their playing fields, and re-start their seasons. Now, we are on the historical doorstep of supporting the most popular sport in the country, Football, as it takes the spotlight to see how it will be received and followed by multiple fan-bases, and especially in our cases, the Los Angeles Rams and the Los Angeles Chargers. Last Thursday, in its opener, the League took huge steps to accentuate its involvement with the BLM Movement. A look at each end zone and how the “on-field” pre-game activities take place will give viewers and fans alike, a sample of what many expect to be the new norm in watching America’s favorite game.

Story By Frankli Robles: With all NFL teams having successfully completed their 2020 “bubble” style training camps, there are still many operational procedures that will have to be followed amid COVID-19. Limited “in-person” attendance will apply to some of the games. This ruling led to many L.A. Chargers and L.A. Rams fans becoming quite upset when the news of “no fans this season until further notice” hit them.

With the Rams and the Chargers “8th Wonder of the Sports World, SoFi Stadium” completed, and No “sold-out” stadium fans permitted inside, or huge numbers of media outlets to show it off to, the Rams will open up against the Dallas Cowboys, “America’s” team, in Week 1 of the regular season, today, Sunday, 9/13 at 5:20 pm on NBC-TV. Radio fans can tune in to 710 am, ESPN. The Rams are expecting big seasons from their two stalwarts, QB/Jared Goff, and All-Pro, Defensive Lineman, Aaron Donald and major help from new Cornerback, #20 Jalen Ramsey. To follow the Rams during the season bookmark their website by clicking here.

In speaking about the Chargers, they hit the road East to Cincinnati where they’ll play the Bengals, also on Sunday, 9/13. The game will be broadcast nationally on CBS-TV, and the Kick-off time is set for 1:05 pm PST. You can also follow them by Radio on ALT 98.7 FMKBUA 105.5 / KBUE 94.3 FM.

The Chargers come into the game with several injuries to key starting players.          ####
