The Week 6 matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills originally slated for Thursday Night Football on October 15 has been rescheduled, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Titans-Bills game scheduled for Sunday is being moved to Tuesday at 6 pm as long as there are no more positive tests with Tennessee, per sources.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 8, 2020
Bills-Chiefs game being switched from next Thursday to Sunday but goes back it more positive tests in Tennessee, per source.
The changes are necessary due to a coronavirus outbreak within the Tennessee Titans organization. Two more Titans players tested positive on Thursday, meaning their Week 5 game against the Bills had to move to Tuesday, October 13.
That made the Bills playing two days later implausible.
The Chiefs-Bills AFC showdown thus moves to Sunday, October 18 — so long as there are no more positive tests in Tennessee. If Tennessee has more positive tests sometime this weekend, the Bills are off for Week 5 and the game reverts back to its originally-scheduled Thursday night.
The moral of the story? Either the Bills will play the Chiefs 10 days removed from their last game or the Chiefs will have two more days of rest than the Bills.
