Patriots Game Moved to Monday for a Second Straight Week
According to WCVB, the Patriots game scheduled for Sunday has been postponed until Monday at 5pm.
The reason for the move is that the team is dealing with several cases of the coronavirus, the news station reported.
Last week, Cam Newton tested positive for the virus and had to sit out their game with Kansas City. This week, the Patriots training facility was closed for most of the week because Stephon Gilmore also tested positive.
The Pats have been practicing this week in Denver since the Foxborough facility remained closed.
According to the report, Coach Belichick said:
I think we knew at the beginning of the season that there were going to be challenges and there have been..... We’re committed to working through them and that’s what we’re doing.
Coach has quite a challenge for this week's game. If Cam is still out for the game, he'll have to choose between backup QB's Brian Hoyer and Jarrett Stidham. UGH!
Did you see the game with the Chiefs? It wasn't great.... Hoyer had to be pulled from the game in the 3rd quarter and Stidham didn't do much better.
Tune in for the action starting with the pre-game on Monday at 2pm, with the kickoff at 5pm.
