Through two weeks of the NFL season, the league and its players and coaches have done a fantastic job of preventing COVID-19 from infecting people. Looking at no positive tests for players and coaches so far, across thousands of people

A lot of people may wonder how they have been able to pull that off, and if you're looking for an answer, Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback has a theory.

In response to an Instagram comment about why the Bucs' cornerbacks were playing so far away from opposing wide receivers, Sean Murphy-Bunting claimed it was to avoid catching COVID.

That is one on-brand response for the times we live in today. With social distancing being one of the big pandemic buzz words, Murphy-Bunting is simply carrying that mindset onto the field.

However, while it might be an effective strategy to lessen the chances of contracting COVID, it also lessens the chance to prevent a wide receiver from catching a pass on the football field. A bold strategy indeed, let's see if it pays off for him.
