Patriots-Chiefs Game Postponed Sunday After QB Cam Newtown Tests Positive for COVID-19

New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newtown has tested positive for COVID-19 and the team’s game today against the Kansas City Chiefs is going to be rescheduled.

“The New England-Kansas City game scheduled for 4:25 p.m. ET Sunday will be rescheduled to Monday or Tuesday after positive COVID-19 tests on both teams,” the NFL said. “In consultation with infectious disease experts, both clubs are working closely with the NFL and the NFLPA to evaluate multiple close contacts, perform additional testing and monitor developments. All decisions will be made with the health and safety of players, team and gameday personnel as our primary consideration.”

Cam Newtown took the starter role on the Patriots in 2020 after the departure of long time Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady. Brady now plays for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  The Pats came into week 4 in the NFL with a 2-1 record and the Chiefs lead the AFC West with a 3-0 record.
