    The start of the has had doubters for some time due to the pandemic, but so far things have been going marvelously well for the league. However, a new issue is threatening to impact the Cowboys-Rams and Cardinals-49ers games; poor air quality due to the ongoing wildfires in Northern California.

    Based on reports today from Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk and with Sports Illustrated, both Inglewood (Rams/Chargers stadium) and Santa Clara (49ers stadium) are near dangerous air quality thresholds to hold their schedules games.

    Obviously, getting the game relocated to Arlington, TX would be a hard sell. But if Jones and Rams' owner Stan Kroenke have a good relationship then crazier things have happened.
