A similar approach was taken to this week’s scheduled Titans-Steelers game, which was ultimately moved to another week. Tennessee is in the midst of the league’s worst outbreak, with eight players and multiple staff members testing positive as of Saturday. The league is likely looking to avoid a similar incident in New England.
If the league does need to reschedule to another week, it would be difficult. The Patriots bye is Week 6, when the Chiefs are scheduled to play the Bills on Thursday Night Football. Kansas City is off Week 10, when the Patriots are set to play the Ravens on Sunday Night.
The fact that Buffalo is involved complicated things further. They are scheduled to play the Titans next week – a game that already is in doubt.
