Packers-Falcons matchup to be 2nd game of rare Monday NFL double-header

The Green Bay Packers and Atlanta Falcons will be part of a rare NFL Monday night double-header. This, after moving one of this weekend’s matchups back a day over coronavirus concerns.

New England and Kansas City were scheduled to square off Sunday. But the game was postponed after Patriots quarterback Cam Newton and Chiefs practice squad quarterback Jordan Ta’amu were added to the COVID-19 reserve list this weekend. Further testing showed none of their teammates were infected with the virus, so the game has been rescheduled for Monday at 6:05 p.m. CDT on CBS.
