On Thursday, the NFL moved the Titans-Bills game to Tuesday at 6 p.m. after another player tested positive. That means that the Bills-Chiefs game is being switched from next Thursday to Sunday. However, both games could change if the Titans report more positive cases.
Currently, the Titans lead the league in COVID-19 cases. At this point, more than 20 within the organization have tested positive.
The NFL sent a memo to teams this week saying it will consider fines, the loss of draft picks and even the forfeit of a game for organizations that fail to follow protocols that result in the disruption of the schedule or a competitive disadvantage for other clubs.
