Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reported on Sunday that there is a chance the California-based NFL teams may have to split time at other venues should the current health crisis cause games to be unplayable on the west coast.

After analyzing the 2020 schedule, Florio came to the conclusion that there is way for the Raiders, Chargers, and Rams could all potentially share Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas this coming season. In this hypothetical, the Rams would open up the stadium in week one, the Chargers would then play a “home” game in week two, and then the Raiders could finally open up their stadium on the following night during Monday Night Football.

He mentions that the first hiccup would be during week four, but the league flex certain games in and out of MNF just like they used to do when teams still shared venues with MLB teams during the season.

Again, this is all a huge hypothetical, but it’s not completely out of left field should things not progress to a point where the state of California will allow football to be played, with or without fans.
