As the NFL Players Association addresses the safety of players, they wanted to empower members with real-time data on the evolving COVID situation. Edgeworth Analytics worked closely with the NFLPA to build an interactive dashboard for the NFLPA website that provides this type of insight—isolating which teams are located in COVID hot spots and offering players a readily accessible source of information to understand the evolving situation in their local communities.

“The NFLPA also posted data about the number of coronavirus cases among the general population in each NFL market, with the highest caseloads being in those of the Miami Dolphins, Arizona Cardinals, Jacksonville Jaguars, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tennessee Titans.”
“The NFLPA on Thursday also included data on the concentration of coronavirus in each team’s market, finding that the Miami Dolphins, Arizona Cardinals and Jacksonville Jaguars’ metropolitan areas led in the 14-day average of daily cases of COVID-19 per 100,000 people.”
“The NFLPA released the numbers amid the launch of a COVID-19 information hub that bills itself as a ‘one-stop-shop of information … about returning to work, testing and COVID-related protocols for players, teams and facilities.’”
“The NFLPA has made this information public on its website, which also provides players a market-by-market look at how the virus has been spreading in cities where camps are scheduled to open later this month. The map on the site is based on 14-day averages of new positive tests and currently shows Miami as the “hottest” virus spot among NFL markets, with 4,164 average daily cases over the past two weeks. Close behind are Los Angeles, Arizona and Dallas.”
“As part of the negotiations, the NFLPA launched the database to keep its players informed about the virus.
The website breaks down the 14-day average of daily cases per 100,000 people in each NFL team’s city. Currently, Miami has the highest concentration with 67.53 cases per 100,000 people.”
