KANSAS CITY(AP) — The NFL will have a rare Monday night double-header after moving this weekend’s marquee matchup back a day over coronavirus concerns.
New England and Kansas City were scheduled to square off Sunday. But the game was postponed after Patriots quarterback Cam Newton and Chiefs practice squad quarterback Jordan Ta’amu were added to the COVID-19 reserve list this weekend. Further testing showed none of their teammates were infected with the virus, so the game has been rescheduled for Monday at 6:05 p.m. CT on CBS. The original Monday night game pitting Atlanta and Green Bay is being bumped back 45 minutes and will now kick off at 8:50 p.m. on ESPN.
