The NFL postponed the game Saturday morning after New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton tested positive for COVID-19. Kansas City Chiefs practice squad QB Jordan Ta'amu also tested positive. Both players have been ruled out of the rescheduled game and have been placed on the reserve/COVID list.

All of the Patriots' and Chiefs' POC tests from Sunday morning have come back negative, according to the NFL. There have been no other positives besides Newton and Ta'amu from the past few days. The teams are still awaiting word from their normal daily PCR tests conducted on Sunday, they are expecting those results to come in by night's end.
