The Patriots vs Chiefs game is scheduled to begin at 7:05 p.m. ET today (Monday, Oct. 5). It was postponed due to COVID-19 infections.
It is expected to air on CBS as a part of Week 4 of the NFL 2020 season.

It's game time, as the Patriots vs Chiefs live stream is delivering delayed action on a new night. Originally scheduled for Sunday afternoon, this matchup was postponed after two players — Patriots quarterback Cam Newton and Chiefs practice squad quarterback Jordan Ta'amu — tested positive for COVID-19, the Sunday game was called off. So, yes, we have now two games of Monday Night Football.

Even if the Patriots had a 3-0 record (they're a win shy at 2-1), the consensus would likely sit in the favor of the Chiefs, whose efficient office has proven worthy of applause all throughout the season's NFL live streams

And while it might not be the heated rivalry we're hearing about in the Giants vs Rams game, the healthy respect shown from Newton to Mahomes this week, saying he's fun to watch and "he’s shining light on the new wave of quarterbacks" is really nice to see. He's even compared Mahomes to Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers.

If the Patriots can get their running game in proper order, they've got their best chance to take this game, as that's been a longer-term weakness of the Chiefs. Recently, though, especially in last game's win over the Ravens, Kansas City showed that it was even fixing that aspect of its game.

So, will the Chiefs stay undefeated? Here are the best ways to watch the NFL season continue with the Patriots vs Chiefs game:
