Why was the Kansas City Chiefs vs. Denver Broncos game moved?
The Chiefs are off to a strong 7-1 record and their game against the Denver Broncos had been scheduled for Thursday November 19th. However, due to unforeseen circumstances outside of both teams’ control, the game was moved.
The Outbreak of Coronavirus In the Broncos Organization
The Broncos were hit with a COVID-19 outbreak in their organization shortly before the game, leading to the NFL’s decision to move the match from Thursday night to Sunday afternoon.
Players Testing Positive For Coronavirus
The NFL required all players and staff members of the Broncos to have negative test results in order to take part in the game. While the Denver organization was able to get most of their players tested and cleared to play, multiple players tested positive. As a result, the Broncos had an inadequate amount of players to participate in this game, which prompted the NFL to move the match to Sunday.
What Does This Mean for the Chiefs?
The Chiefs will play their game against the Broncos on Sunday afternoon and it will still be broadcasted on national television. They will have 16 days between this game and their next one, providing plenty of time to respond to any Covid-19 related developments.
The Kansas City Chiefs were set to take on the Denver Broncos on Thursday night, but unfortunately, the game was moved to Sunday. The reason for this is due to a Covid-19 outbreak within the Broncos organization, resulting in undeniably low player availability. Although the Chiefs had to make an unexpected alteration to their itinerary this week, the game will still be played and broadcasted, providing the football world with some much-needed entertainment.
