Patriots-Broncos now being rescheduled due to coronavirus concerns

Article written by:On3 imageZack Geoghegan


After initially receiving a one-day delay, the matchup between the Denver Broncos and New England Patriots is now being rescheduled entirely. According to ESPN, the game--which had already been moved to Monday as opposed to Sunday--is now being rescheduled to next Sunday. The Patriots reportedly received another positive test this morning for the coronavirus and the NFL shut down its practice facilities for the third time in 10 days. https://twitter.com/AdamSchefter/status/1315277538059575297 Patriots quarterback Cam Newton tested positive last Saturday while cornerback Stephen Gilmore played in last Monday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs and tested positive just two days later. The Chiefs-Patriots game was initially scheduled for last Sunday but was moved to Monday following the positive tests. Now, with this week's matchup being moved, multiple games are going to be affected as a result. The Tennessee Titans had another positive case pop up on Sunday morning, as well. They've already had to reschedule their Week 4 matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers due to dozens (24, to be exact) of positive cases since late September. The Titans are expected to play the Buffalo Bills on Tuesday after the game was pushed back from Sunday, but now that contest is in serious doubt.
