The NFL continues to be attacked by the coronavirus, and once again they have been forced to postpone a match at this start of the regular phase. This time it will be the match between Patriots Y Broncos, which had been rescheduled for this Monday Night Football. This became official after New England reported a new positive case on campus.
Patriots-Broncos again postponed
The confrontation between Patriots Y Broncos and had been rescheduled for this Monday, given the situation of infections on the Foxborough campus. Those of Bill Belichick had had their facilities closed until last Saturday, so the NFL He gave them one more day to prepare for the meeting. However, this one will not be played on October 12, either.
New England Patriots had confirmed days ago that the Defensive Player of the Year, Stephon Gilmour has tested positive for COVID-19, which triggered the closure of the franchise facilities during Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Now, after training on Saturday, the venue would have been closed again due to another contagion.
This last positive case means that the number of infections in Patriots rises to 4, being the franchise most affected in the NFL behind the Tennessee Titans, who are experiencing a wild outbreak in the organization. This Monday’s game will be moved to next week (in the absence of confirmation). This does not influence the Foxborough team’s schedule, as they had to rest. Conversely, Denver Broncos will have a rescheduling of the game against the Dolphins.
Tennessee Titans continues in the contagion crisis, with at least 24 positives among players and staff members. After last day’s game against the Steelers was suspended, this date’s game against Buffalo Bills has been postponed. Those in Nasville remain inactive and with their facilities closed until further notice.
