Reports: NFL rescheduling Bills-Titans, Patriots-Broncos games


The NFL has reportedly rescheduled a pair of Week 5 games due to COVID-19.

Sunday’s game between the Tennessee Titans and the Buffalo Bills has been moved to Tuesday, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, but will only take place if there are no more positive COVID-19 tests in the organization of the Titans.

As a result, according to Schefter, the NFL is also postponing Thursday night’s game of Week 6 of the Bills in Buffalo against the Kansas City Chiefs to this Sunday. However, if this week’s Bills-Titans game cannot be played, Bills-Chiefs will continue as planned.

The league also moved the Week 5 game between the New England Patriots and the Denver Broncos to Monday night, according to Mike Klis of Denver 9News, marking the second week in a row, New England will be part of a double schedule Monday night due to the novel coronavirus.

Le match Patriots-Broncos starts at 5:05 p.m. ET.

The Patriots have had three positive COVID-19 cases among players over the past week, including quarterback Cam Newton and defensive defensive player of the year Stephon Gilmore, but no test has come back positive Thursday.

The COVID-19 epidemic within the Titans organization reached 23 cases on Thursday. The Tennessee facilities remain closed to the team and players have been told not to congregate for in-person activities, according to the Associated Press.
