Typically, we’re only treated to a double header on Monday night during the opening week of the NFL season. However, due to a COVID scare for both the Chiefs and the Patriots, their Sunday game was pushed back a day, and now we’re left with two games on the slate.

First is that postponed Chiefs vs. Patriots game that was one of the most anticipated games of Week 4. Part of the intrigue is certainly gone now that Cam Newton is on the COVID-19 reserve list, but the Patriots always seem to be more than the sum of their own parts. With Brian Hoyer scheduled to start vs. the Chiefs, they could still hang with an undefeated Kansas City team.

The originally-scheduled “Monday Night Football” game, Falcons vs. Packers, doesn’t promise to be as exciting. The Falcons are 0-3 and capable of blowing leads at an alarmingly similar rate to the Lions. The Packers are 3-0 and looking like both a NFC North shoo-in and a serious contender in the entire conference.

The schedule is a little messed up this week, so here’s a look at the new kickoff times and how you can catch each game.

Also, I’ll be providing live commentary for the Packers vs. Falcons game over on the Super Squares twitch page. Feel free to drop by and chat with us while playing some Super Squares.
