Denver Broncos game postponed due to Patriots positive COVID-19 tests


Mann we ain’t even do anything — Bradley Chubb (@astronaut) October 11, 2020

The Broncos followed every single protocol that the NFL had in place to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 throughout the league. They social distanced outside of practice, they tested every single day and turned up negative, they wore masks and washed their hands, they did everything right, and were still punished. The NFL had to postpone the already postponed Patriots at Broncos game and took away an already injury plagued team’s bye week. The game that was originally scheduled to play on Sunday was moved to Monday, now the Monday game will be played on a later date. Now the Broncos will get zero rest during their fake bye week and the Patriots get to rest during the week. Injuries have devastated the Broncos roster and a bye week would have really helped the team get healthy.


Injuries at an all time high and our bye week was burned up with practices. https://t.co/4Z11ZBTi2D — Justin Simmons (@jsimms1119) October 11, 2020

The Broncos players are frustrated. They have every single right to be if you think about. Imagine you go to school all week, then you’re told you’ve got to go in a Saturday because someone else screwed up, and then on Sunday you’re told that was your Spring Break. You’d be pretty pissed. That’s where the Broncos are right now. They did everything right, the Patriots screwed up, and the Broncos lost their bye week.


Ain’t no way we practiced all week and they canceled our game — F L ⚡️ S H (@Melvingordon25) October 11, 2020
