Despite the NFL implementing new COVID-19 protocols last week, the league continues its fight with the virus. Yesterday, the league postponed the Denver Broncos-New England Patriots game after there was another positive case within the New England organization.

Patriots players reportedly are unhappy with the NFL’s handling of the situation, with the team having played in Kansas City last week despite Cam Newton’s positive test.

Meanwhile, the Tennessee Titans are still struggling with cases nearly two weeks after the organization’s outbreak began. The Titans are supposed to play Tuesday against the Buffalo Bills despite not practicing in at least 10 days. Including Week 5 and beyond, eight games have been affected so far.

Games Affected So Far:

Week 4: Steelers-Titans game moved to Week 7; Patriots-Chiefs moved to Monday.

Week 5: Bills-Titans moved to Tuesday; Patriots-Broncos moved to Week 6, which will affect other Broncos weeks.

Week 6: Bills-Chiefs moved from Thursday to Monday.

Week 7: Steelers-Ravens moved to Week 8 (previously the teams’ bye weeks.)
