There will be two NFL Monday night games for the second straight week, but not everybody is in favor of the novelty.
After news broke that the Denver Broncos-New England Patriots game in Foxborough would be moved from Sunday afternoon to Monday night due to multiple positive COVID-19 tests on the Patriots, Broncos defensive end Shelby Harris voiced his displeasure on Twitter.
"Why are we getting punished when we did nothing wrong. Pats go on a bye next week and we are stuck on a short week playing the dolphins help it make sense," Harris tweeted.

The Patriots played against the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday, with the game being delayed a day after the team learned Saturday of quarterback Cam Newton's positive COVID-19 test. All-Pro cornerback Stephon Gilmore tested positive on Tuesday, while practice-squad defensive lineman Bill Murray also was placed on the COVID-19 reserve list.
The Broncos' last game was a 37-28 win over the New York Jets on "Thursday Night Football" on Oct. 1.
The Broncos-Patriots game wasn't the only contest delayed due to positive COVID-19 tests. The Tennessee Titans' game against the Buffalo Bills was postponed to Tuesday due to a COVID-19 outbreak on the Titans.
