UPDATE: The New England Patriots at Kansas City Chiefs game has been rescheduled for Monday, October 5 at 7:05 p.m. ET on CBS. Check out the full preview here.
The most anticipated matchup of Week 4 in the NFL was supposed to be against the best running team in football in the New England Patriots and simply the best team in football in the Kansas City Chiefs. All of that was put into doubt when it was announced that star quarterback Cam Newton was diagnosed with COVID-19. The game was originally scheduled for Sunday, October 4 at 4.25 p.m at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, MO. Now the league is looking to reschedule the game for Monday or Tuesday. The most current reporting has this game most likely to be rescheduled for Tuesday, October 6.
It was reported that both teams had players test positive for the virus. As of publication, Newton is the only Patriots player to test positive and will quarantine immediately. Even if this game is played in the upcoming days, it is almost certain that he will be out. Brian Hoyer is expected to replace Newton over backup QB Jarrett Stidham mostly because of his vast experience.
This follows an outbreak amongst the Tennessee Titans organization in which as many as nine players have tested positive for COVID-19. Their game against the Pittsburgh Steelers this week has been postponed and rescheduled for October 25. None of this is certain and fuboTV will update this article as soon as more information is available. We will provide a more in-depth preview once logistics of the game are confirmed and we come closer to kick-off. Stay tuned as this story is quickly evolving.
