The Rams game will be among the first postponed NFL game in 2021 due to COVID-19, after the 2020 season saw 18 total games postponed due to COVID-19 concerns. Also being moved around will be the Raiders-Rams game, which will now be on Monday at 2 p.m. PST, and Washington Football Team-Eagles game, which will also be played at 4 p.m., Tuesday.
