Postponed due to positive coronavirus tests, the Patriots and Chiefs provide an unlikely second football game on Monday night.
If you want to know to watch the New England Patriots vs. Kansas City Chiefs live stream online, you’ve come to the right place. After Patriots quarterback Cam Newton was diagnosed as positive for COVID-19, the league was forced to postpone this game until the situation became clearer. Luckily, there don’t seem to be any medical holdups, so we get two football games on Monday night!
Before we get into the specifics, let's make sure you’ve got the info you need to catch the game.

What to watch for in the New England Patriots vs. Kansas City Chiefs live stream online:
When the game kicks off at 7:05 p.m. EST from Arrowhead Stadium, the Patriots are going to face their toughest challenge to date. Not only do they need to battle the defending Super Bowl champions on their home turf, but they’ll have to do it without their starting quarterback. Most of the reason for this schedule reshuffling is because the aforementioned Newton tested positive for COVID-19, forcing the league to adapt.
Instead, they’ll start veteran Brian Hoyer — An interesting decision with all signs pointing toward Jared Stidham taking over Tom Brady’s starting spot before Newton was signed. Regardless, Hoyer’s been a solid backup for a long time in this league and anyone with the trust of head coach Bill Belichick must be prepared for battle.
Meanwhile, the 3-0 Kansas City Chiefs are riding high after dominating one of the conference’s most intriguing opponents in the Baltimore Ravens last week. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes completed 31-of-41 passes last week for 385 yards and four touchdowns in the air in addition to one touchdown on the ground. Five receivers finished with at least 60 yards in the contest led by future Hall of Fame tight end Travis Kelce.
Perennially one of the best at his position, Kelce leads all tight ends in both yards and receptions through the first three games of the season. It’ll be interesting to watch him combat a New England secondary that stymied potential All-Pro tight end Darren Waller just a week ago. In Kansas City’s 23-16 victory over the Patriots last season, Kelce finished with 66 yards and the only rushing touchdown of his career.
Maybe the Chiefs will look to double-down and use Kelce that was again in this matchup.
