In the last four days according to the ESPN, 9 members of the Tennessee Titans have been tested positive for COVID-19. This could be the start of the spreading of viruses among the various teams in the NFL.

Many professional leagues and sports such as MLB, the NFL have been restarted by making the bubble in which the players and all related people are contained with no people coming in or going out of the bubble.
There is also local restrictions on the way of fans attending the games. According to the reports, 7000 attendees were registered to see the home game of the Titans and later that could be increased to 10,000.
Many coaches in the NFL have to fill fine up to $100,000 for not wearing masks while the game sessions. Despite all the tight security and some slips, the NFL managed to avoid the COVID-19 so far. Except for 9 positive of the Titans and 5 positives of other personnel, no one has been tested positive.
