MNF Open Thread: Patriots @ Chiefs

The lack of Cam Newton in this matchup really sours the hype.

The Patriots traveled early this morning to make it to Kansas City for their tilt later today that was rescheduled from yesterday following Cam Newton testing positive for COVID-19 on Saturday.

The rest of the Patriots and Chiefs stayed negative - aside from Kansas City third-string quarterback Jordan Ta’Amu - and the game was fortunately only postponed an extra day.

It remains to be seen who will start for the Patriots under center, but their choices are either Jarrett Stidham or Brian Hoyer, so good luck with that one. New England will also be without running back Sony Michel, so expect a lot of Rex Burkhead, J.J. Taylor, and possibly James White in his potential return to the team.

The Chiefs will look...like the Chiefs.

Opening kickoff will be at 4:05pm over on CBS.

Enjoy the game, everyone.
