After the cancellation of Week 3 due to a player’s strike, the NFL season resumes with replacement players. The NFL Players Association was fighting for the right to free agency. The replacement games were not well received by fans, as attendance plummeted, despite several star players, including Joe Montana crossing the picket line to play for the San Francisco 49ers. The regular players would return after three weeks, as the players returned to work on October 15th without a new CBA.
