Two NFL games are being rescheduled because of COVID-19.
The New England Patriots game against the Denver Broncos scheduled for Sunday will now be played Monday night as the early game in a doubleheader
The Tennessee Titans and Buffalo Bills will now play on Tuesday as long as the Titans don’t show any new positive tests from their COVID-19 outbreak. If that game is played on Tuesday, next Thursday’s Bills-Chiefs game will move to Sunday, meaning there probably wouldn’t be a Thursday night game in Week 6.
The NFL moved last Sunday’s Patriots matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs to Monday after quarterback Cam Newton landed on the COVID-19/reserve list during the week before the game. Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore announced that he tested positive for COVID-19. The Patriots reportedly haven’t had any additional positive COVID-19 tests since Gilmore’s. Newton’s status for Monday remains unclear, though he will obviously be the starter if he’s medically cleared and physically ready. Monday’s game will be played in New England.
