Patriots-Chiefs game is being postponed and is expected to be played Monday or Tuesday, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 3, 2020
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.
Patriots’ QB Cam Newton tested positive and is out for Sunday’s game vs. Kansas City, per @FieldYates and me.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) 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.
