DENVER (CBS4/AP) — The Broncos game against the Patriots, which was re-scheduled for a 3 p.m. kickoff on Monday, has been moved again. Details on more schedule changes are to be announced later in the day on Sunday.
#Broncos game against New England is postponed to next Sunday.
SO this now counts as the Broncos “bye week” which is complete bs because the guys practiced all week and didn’t get any sort of bye at all!
Also, home game vs MIA moves to week 11
home game vs LAC moves to week 8

A person familiar with the situation says the Patriots have closed their facility again after the positive test result, while the Tennessee Titans announced they closed their facility Sunday morning after a staff member tested positive.

Both the Broncos and the Patriots will have a bye for Week 5. Denver was scheduled to have its bye Week 8.
There were no other positive COVID-19 tests Sunday. Six games have been moved already as the league is in its fifth week of the schedule.
