The Kansas City Chiefs-Buffalo Bills game is rescheduled to Monday night from Thursday in Week 6 as part of a host of schedule changes made in response to ongoing COVID-19 issues around the NFL, the league announced Sunday.

The Denver Broncos-New England Patriots contest is moved from Week 5 to Week 6, as reported earlier in the day, causing a rescheduling domino effect that includes games involving the Miami Dolphins, New York Jets, Los Angeles Chargers, and Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Broncos and Patriots will take their byes in Week 5.

New England shut down its facility Sunday morning following a fourth positive test in the last eight days. The Patriots' game against the Broncos was already moved from Sunday to Monday due to coronavirus concerns.

The NFL didn't announce the status of Tuesday's contest between the Tennessee Titans and Bills, but the league plans to play the game as scheduled barring new developments, a source told ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

The game, which was already pushed back due to the Titans' COVID-19 outbreak, was thrown into doubt again by another Tennessee positive Sunday. The AFC South club also shut down its facility in response.
