After Cam Newton tested positive for COIVD-19, the Patriots did not travel to Kansas City, and the game will not take place as scheduled on Sunday at 3:25. The league is planning to play the game at 6:05 Central on Monday night, barring any more positive tests on either side.
When the news first broke, many wondered how this differed from the Falcons last week, who had a positive test the Saturday before their game, which went on without interruption.
Peter Schrager explained the answer he was hearing from people around the league.
Chiefs practice squad QB Jordan Ta’amu also tested positive Saturday.
For now, we have to wait and see what test results are over the next few days, as any positive test would likely force the league to postpone the game even further into the season.
