Chiefs vs Patriots Live Game:Watch MNF NFL Week4 News,info and More.The Chiefs and Patriots will face off on Monday, and both these teams are in a very unfamiliar situation. Positive COVID-19 tests for both Patriots starting quarterback Cam Newton and Chiefs practice squad quarterback Jordan Ta'amu derailed this matchup and forced a postponement after it was originally set to kick off on Sunday. But the road has been cleared for this game to press on, and additional testing has shown no more positive tests for either team. That said, we'll still be holding our breath essentially until kickoff as both clubs will be tested once again on Monday morning.

Jim Nantz, Tony Romo, and Tracy Wolfson will be on the call for the NFL on CBS special (7:05 p.m. ET).

Of course, New England will be at a severe disadvantage now that Newton will be sidelined for this game. Veteran Brian Hoyer is expected to start under center for the Patriots, while second-year quarterback Jarrett Stidham will serve as his backup. He will try to upset Kansas City and move his Patriots to 3-1 on the year. Meanwhile, the Chiefs (3-0) will have their full complement of weapons that flexed their Lombardi muscles in Monday's win over the Baltimore Ravens.

William Hill Sportsbook has the Chiefs as an 10.5-point favorite in this matchup while the Over/Under total is set at 48.5. Of course, that spread increased from Chiefs -7 to Chiefs -10.5 following the news that Newton will be sidelined. To see who our CBS Sports experts have winning this head-to-head, click here. Before we dive deeper into this matchup, here's how you can tune into Pats-Chiefs.

With Newton under center, Josh McDaniels completely revamped the New England offense that leads the league in rushing yards (178.0) per game entering Week 4. Newton, of course, added a new dimension to the Patriots rushing attack as he is tied for the NFL rushing touchdown lead with four scores. Now that he'll miss this matchup, it will be curious to see if the Patriots return to an offense that looks more like the one Tom Brady ran throughout his tenure in New England. No matter if it's Brian Hoyer or Jarrett Stidham under center, they are not as mobile as Newton and likely could not run exactly the same offense as they have over the first three weeks.
