Another NFL game is being affected by the pandemic. After the Steelers-Titans game this weekend was rescheduled for later in the season, Sunday's Patriots-Chiefs game has now been postponed after positive tests on both teams.

Patriots quarterback Cam Newton was the first player to test positive and he was quickly ruled out. As of right now he's the only player on the team to test positive.
Patriots’ QB Cam Newton tested positive and is out for Sunday’s game vs. Kansas City, per @FieldYates and me.

The decision to postpone the game was announced after the Chiefs had a quarterback test positive. Practice squad player Jordan Ta'amu reportedly tested positive and caused the game to be postponed.

Obviously this isn't great news, but it was bound to happen playing during a pandemic and not in a bubble. Hopefully the spread is minimal and we can have a game on Monday or Tuesday.
