The N.F.L.’s nearly perfect record in containing the coronavirus took a major hit when multiple members of the Tennessee Titans tested positive following last week’s win over Minnesota. Now, a huge matchup between Tennessee and Pittsburgh — both of which are 3-0 — has been delayed until Week 7 and the rest of the league will be contemplating what would happen if another shoe dropped.
The situation, made worse by Saturday reports that New England quarterback Cam Newton has tested positive, further complicates the season for a league that often finds itself hard to root for, but assuming everything goes off as planned, here is a look at N.F.L. Week 4, with all picks made against the point spread.
Sunday’s Best Games
Los Angeles Chargers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 1 p.m., CBS

It’s good to be the Buccaneers (2-1). Tom Brady is settling in well and the team’s defense has proved that it is a force. An injury to wide receiver Chris Godwin takes away a little of their offensive upside, but Tampa Bay seems like it might be a playoff team — one that could struggle against the elites, but also one that can handle middling teams just fine.
