When the National Football League’s owners gathered virtually in October, it was on the heels of a Covid-19 outbreak inside the Tennessee Titans that derailed the league’s schedule. They discussed what would become a principle of this season’s thorny finish: the NFL’s long-held obsession with competitive fairness had to go by the wayside. “Health and medical decisions have and will always take precedence over competitive considerations,” commissioner Roger Goodell said Wednesday. The outbreak left the Ravens to play against the NFL’s last undefeated team without MVP quarterback Lamar Jackson, their top two running backs and a host of other starters. It wasn’t even confirmed that the game would proceed until shortly after noon Wednesday, just hours before kickoff.
