As the health of Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin lingers on the minds of many in the sports world, questions still linger over what the NFL will do about the team’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
The NFL postponed the game in the first quarter after play was halted while medical staff attended to Hamlin. The defensive back went into cardiac arrest and needed to have his heartbeat restarted on the field before being rushed to the hospital, the Bills said.

Carson Palmer, who played for the Bengals among other teams and was a three-time Pro Bowler, appeared on «Fox & Friends» Wednesday and told co-host Brian Kilmeade that he didn’t think the game would resume or be replayed.
«I don’t think you can repeat this game,» Palmer said. «They have to finish the Week 18 games this week and then the playoffs start the following week. If they were going to repeat this game on Thursday, we’d hear it, I think, right now. Maybe you’d call it a wash and give every team a tie and move on».
