    There will be no preseason games for the National Football League this year, according to an open letter published Monday by Commissioner Roger Goodell.

    The mandate comes as every aspect of sporting world has been affected by coronavirus. Earlier this year, the NFL had to hold its draft virtually to avoid the spread of the virus. The season is set to begin in September.
