Broncos-Patriots moved to Monday night

For the second consecutive week, the NFL will have two Monday Night Football games, delaying the Patriots by a day because of COVID-19.

The Broncos-Patriots game currently on the schedule for a 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff on Sunday in New England will actually be played on Monday night, according to Mike Klis of 9 News in Denver.

There has been no word on the TV schedule, but it’s likely that the game would be an earlier kickoff on CBS and that ESPN’s regularly scheduled Chargers-Saints game would kick off later.

The NFL schedule, like all of American life, has been significantly impacted by COVID-19. So far games have only been delayed, not canceled, and the league is hoping to keep it that way — and hoping there won’t be any more positive tests on the Patriots, which could cause the game to be delayed by a lot more than a day.

    A chance to embrace the positive for once and don’t forget games on 4 nights out of 7.

    Is Cam playing?
    _________

    This is the real reason the game was moved.

  5. Bills/Titans to Tuesday – Bills/Chiefs probably Sunday. Bills get jammed b/c of Titans miscues. What happens when another 3-4 Titans get Covid over the net few days?

    Actually, Newton was tested positive this past Saturday, which means he may not be cleared for a game even Monday night

  7. Why does the NFL make special accommodation just for New England to get Newton back on the the team by giving them an extra day. It is unfair! Play the game as scheduled or forfeit!

  8. This is turning out to be a pretty awesome football season. Two Monday night games. Tuesday games. I love it. We’re a quarter into the season. Just 3/4 left, and playoffs. Keep your fingers crossed.
