Game will have to be rescheduled i would assume.   The NFL better have another two to three weeks ready to add on at the end.  This is only going to get worse.

No, they're playing. The Broncos would have to forfeit.

Just cancel this crap fest pandemic season already and reward the Jets with the #1 overall pick and Jax the #2 overall pick and be done with 2020 (10 games is a big enough sample size to respect our #1 pick status). 

STOP THE COUNT!

Screw that! Adding weeks to the season gives Gase the extra time he needs for his late season push like last year.

The Broncos are heading into tomorrow’s game against the Saints with an unprecedented challenge: They don’t have a single quarterback.

All of the quarterbacks on the Broncos’ roster have been ruled out of Sunday’s game because they were exposed to COVID-19, according to multiple reports.

Broncos backup quarterback Jeff Driskel has tested positive for COVID-19, and the report says all of the Broncos’ other quarterbacks have been in close contact with Driskel, with no one wearing masks.

It’s unclear what the Broncos will do. It’s not feasible to bring in a quarterback from the outside in less than 24 hours. So unless the NFL postpones the game, the Broncos would have to have a position player line up at quarterback. (No, Broncos General Manager John Elway can’t play.) Broncos running back Royce Freeman appears to be the leading contender.

This NFL season has seen teams go through a number of unique challenges because of the COVID-19 pandemic. But no team has done anything like play a game without a single quarterback. That’s what the Broncos are poised to do tomorrow.

This kind of thing is just made for a guy like Josh mccown, the nfl should have a small pool of emergency guys.  The NHL makes sure there are emergency goalies at each game if i ma not mistaken.  (See the carolina goalie who actually beat the leafs last year.)

But you have to know the offense, at least know the terminology.

Guys that have been around for a long time would be able to function and if you don't you simply go old school.  Coach calls in a dive play to the right and that is it.  Coach calls in a square out to the left.  Sand lot it in the huddle

I'd rather have a real QB and dumb it down to a low level than to be playing some RB or punter or something.

Whoever they put in will not be working with anything complicated at all.

Can you imagine what the spread has done since the announcement.
