The NFL has a unique Monday on its hands. The league will have a second Monday game outside of Week 1 for the first time in a decade. The Kansas City Chiefs will host the New England Patriots in a game rescheduled from Sunday due to positive Covid-19 tests for Patriots quarterback Cam Newton and Chiefs quarterback Jordan Ta’amu.
The game is scheduled to kick off at approximately 7:05 p.m. ET and will air on CBS. The game was going to be the game of the week on Sunday, but it would not have been available in every market. With the move to Monday, CBS will be airing this across the country.
If you can’t watch this game on TV, there are some options you can consider for streaming. Most notably, streaming services like FuboTV, Hulu with Live TV, YouTube TV, AT&T TV Now, or Sling TV are all options to consider. And they offer free trials if you’ve never used them before so you can try that out to watch the game.
This is not quite the matchup we thought it would be when the week opened. The Chiefs were a 6.5 point favorite on Friday, and then Cam Newton tested positive for Covid-19. The line has since climbed to 10.5 with Brian Hoyer set to start in Newton’s place. It’s always fascinating to see how a team adjusts to an unexpected change at quarterback. The Chiefs were preparing for Newton and now get to face Hoyer. While Hoyer does not have the upside of Newton, he does bring a solid enough floor where a double digit spread might be a bit much.
