Broncos RB Melvin Gordon sounds off on NFL for moving Patriots game
Broncos' Gordon finishes in the NFL for moving the Patriots game that originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
The New England Patriots were likely relieved they didn't have to play on Monday after taking another positive COVID-19 test on Sunday.
The Denver Broncos? Not as much.
The Broncos did not have positive COVID-19 tests and practiced all week to prepare for their week 5 matchup with the Patriots. However, hours before their planned trip to New England, the NFL postponed the game to week 6.
Report: Pats players didn't feel like playing Broncos on Monday
This is how Star Denver, who runs back to Melvin Gordon, feels about this development:
Gordon's frustration is understandable. The Broncos originally had a reunion in week 8, but now their goodbye comes in week 5 - and it's not a real week off as the team trained all week.
They have also so far followed the NFL's COVID-19 protocols and are reportedly being punished for testing positive the patriots.
However, the NFL knew these scenarios could come up when they decided to play the season, and teams will have to prepare for sudden schedule changes if they are to make it through the year.
For the Broncos, that means enduring a week of lost practice and preparing for future changes as the NFL now has to postpone their competition with the Miami Dolphins in week 6.
