TAMPA ― NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will attend the Bucs-Vikings game Sunday at Raymond James Stadium.
In addition to watching his favorite quarterback, Tom Brady, Goodell will no doubt get a chance to have a closer look at preparations for Super Bowl 55.
While it hasn’t been determined whether or not the NFL’s biggest event will be played with fans, about 16,000 socially distanced Bucs fans have been permitted to attend games for most of the season.
Super Bowl 55 is scheduled to be played at Raymond James on Feb. 7. Presumably, that date could be pushed back, but there has been no cancellation of any NFL games this season and organizers have focused on that date.
Last week, Goodell said that while the NFL is considering a bubble format for the playoffs, it wouldn’t resemble what was used in the NHL and NBA to complete their seasons.
“It will take partnership and discipline to complete this season. I’m confident we’ll be able to do it,” Goodell said, referring to the NFL Players Association, the clubs, and the players.
Wouldn’t it be something if Goodell shared another winning Super Bowl podium with Brady?
