Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen was placed on the NFL's reserve/COVID-19 list Monday. Coach Brandon Staley said that Allen's status "is day to day right now, and hopefully we’ll have some good news on him in the next few days.” The Chargers (7-5) — who are in possession of the AFC's second wild-card spot — host the New York Giants this week before a key matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs on Dec. 16.
The Arizona Cardinals, Green Bay Packers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs all kept their places high up in the rankings. The Cardinals earned 11 of the 12 first-place votes for 382 points in balloting Tuesday by media members who regularly cover the NFL. The Cardinals will close out Week 14 when they host the Los Angeles Rams on Monday night.
