For the second week in a row the New England Patriots will be moved to dinner time on Monday night, an early 5pm start. The game has been moved from Sunday afternoon
The Patriots have three players on the COVID list and are not expected to practice until Friday at the earliest. It is possible with the extra delay Cam Newton or Stephon Gilmore may become available for the game.
The good news is it will shorten the waiting period during the Patriots bye week. The bad news is if there are any further positive tests, the game could be pushed back for an indefinite time period.
Kickoff for Broncos-Patriots is 3:05 pm Mountain time. So happy hour not dinner time. Doesn't overlap with other Monday night game between Chargers and Saints, as this past Monday night Chiefs-Pats game did with Falcons-Packers. #9sports

The Patriots/Broncos game is not the only one that will be effected. The Buffalo Bills game against the Tennessee Titans has been pushed back as well.
Titans-Bills game scheduled for Sunday is being moved to Tuesday at 6 pm as long as there are no more positive tests with Tennessee, per sources.
Bills-Chiefs game being switched from next Thursday to Sunday but goes back it more positive tests in Tennessee, per source.
