(KFVS) - The NFL announced Sunday that the Week 4 New England Patriots-Kansas City Chiefs game, originally scheduled for Sunday, October 4, will be played on Monday, October 5 at 6:05 p.m. CDT on CBS.
Due to the game being played on Monday, Heartland News at 6 will be preempted and Heartland News at 10 will follow the airing of Big Brother.
The game between the Chiefs and the Patriots was postponed after New England quarterback Cam Newton and Chiefs practice squad quarterback Jordan Ta’amu were added to the COVID-19 reserve list Saturday.
Further testing of players and personnel on both teams returned no new positives from Saturday, Sunday and Monday testing.
The clubs also worked closely with the NFL and NFLPA and infectious disease experts to conduct contact tracing and post-COVID exposure protocols are now in effect for both teams.
The Atlanta Falcons-Green Bay Packers game will shift to an 8:50 p.m. ET start on Monday on ESPN.
