The NFL announced some changes to the Week 5 schedule to account for multiple issues related to Covid-19. This is all subject to change given how the testing process and protocols operate, but for now, we’ve got an extended Week 5 schedule.

The league has moved Broncos-Patriots from Sunday at 1 p.m. ET to Monday evening at 5 p.m. The game is also being moved from CBS to ESPN so that Monday will bring a Monday Night Football doubleheader. Chargers-Saints will start at 8:15 p.m. as scheduled.

The Bills-Titans contest was also scheduled for 1 p.m. ET on Sunday, but it is being moved to 7 p.m. on Tuesday. It will remain on CBS if the game happens. The Bills are scheduled to face the Chiefs on Thursday, October 15, and that is being moved to Sunday given the quick turnaround.

Both of these games are still in question due to Covid-19 testing. The Titans have had more positives in recent days, and if they have another positive Friday morning, that would likely sink the chances of playing the Bills-Titans game this week. If Bills-Titans ends up postponed to another week, Bills-Chiefs would move back to Thursday Night Football.

Here’s what the Sunday, Monday, Tuesday schedule looks like.
