ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WROC) — The NFL announced Thursday night that this week’s Bills game against the Titans is being postponed from Sunday afternoon to Tuesday night. The move comes after 13 players and 10 team personnel members have tested positive for COVID-19 in the Titans’ organization.
In a press release, the NFL clarified that the game will be played at 7 p.m. and will be shown on News 8.
The change will only happen if there are no more positive tests. That’s certainly not a guarantee. Wednesday morning, another player tested positive for the Titans and an inconclusive test from Tuesday was confirmed.
The postponement will impact next week’s game as well. The Bills were set to play the Chiefs on Thursday night football, but that game will be moved to later in the weekend. Originally, ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeted the Bills-Chiefs game would be played on Sunday. However, the NFL provided no date or time for the rescheduling of that matchup.
That Chiefs game change will only happen if the Bills-Titans contest gets played on Tuesday and does not have to be canceled or further postponed.
