We're five months away from the start of the NFL season and people are already starting to talk about whether or not there even will be a season this year. ABC News published results of a recent poll that asked Americans if the NFL season should start as planned. 77% supported the idea of delaying the season.

Vikings QB, Kirk Cousins, doesn't want that. He wants to play football even if the games take place in empty stadiums. On a media call with ESPN the quarterback said, "Honestly, we practice every day in an empty grass area and pump in fake crowd noise for away games. But more often than not, you're used to it. OTA practices don't have a lot of pomp and circumstance to them. So honestly, to go out and just play the game would kind of be refreshing, a breath of fresh air, to just let us know that we don't have to have all the smoke and the fire. We can just play football. So as long as we're playing the game, I won't have a lot of complaints, and hopefully, if it's still not returned to normal, we can find a way to make it work."
