Just days after the Steelers and Titans moved their Week 4 matchup, the NFL announced there will be a second postponement.
According to Adam Schefter, the Patriots vs. Chiefs game will be played on Monday or Tuesday.

The postponement comes after some Saturday morning news that quarterbacks tested positive for COVID-19.
Patriots quarterback Cam Newton tested positive on Saturday, with reports of Chiefs practice squad quarterback Jordan Ta’amu also testing positive. Thus far, no one else on either team has tested positive.

It’s not just New England: #Chiefs practice squad QB Jordan Ta'amu has tested positive for COVID-19 and is being added to the reserve list, per me and @MikeGarafolo.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 3, 2020
The Patriots vs. Chiefs game was originally scheduled to be played in the late afternoon time slot. The NFL has now moved the Bears vs. Colts game up to 4:15 pm after it was originally scheduled for 1 pm.
Whether the Chiefs vs. Patriots game actually happens in Week 4 remains to be seen. The Steelers vs. Titans game had originally been postponed to Monday or Tuesday, but has now been pushed back several weeks.
