NFL Rumors: Latest On Status Of Postponed Patriots-Chiefs Week 4 Game - NESN
Here's the latest on the Week 4 New England Patriots-Kansas City Chiefs game, which was postponed after Cam Newton's positive COVID-19 test.
At this point, the Chiefs and Patriots are trending toward playing Monday night. Obviously, much can change between now and then. Patriots quarterback Cam Newton on Friday night tested positive for COVID-19, forcing the NFL to postpone the scheduled Sunday afternoon clash between New England and Kansas City. Jordan Ta’amu, a practice squad quarterback for the Chiefs, also tested positive. Multiple reports Saturday night indicated all additional tests conducted by both teams came back negative, and that Patriots players were told to plan on flying — and playing — Monday. So, where did things stand Sunday morning?
Cam Newton Calls Out Dolphins In Instagram Post After Patriots' Win - NESN
Cam Newton shined in New England's Week 1 win over Miami, but his Patriots debut at Gillette Stadium ended in frustration.
You only can make one first impression, and Cam Newton made a good one Sunday afternoon at Gillette Stadium. Newton shined in his Patriots debut. The veteran quarterback completed 15 of 19 passes for 155 yards, but he was even more effective with his legs. Newton was the game’s leading rusher with 75 yards, and his two touchdowns on the ground helped lift New England to a 21-11 win over the Miami Dolphins. The three-time Pro Bowl selection didn’t leave the field smiling after his strong performance, however. Newton was at the center of an end-of-game skirmish which, according to the star signal-caller, was ignited by Dolphins players reaching for his chain. After the game, Newton trolled the Fins for their failed attempt. Miami’s antics clearly frustrated Newton in the moment, but we can’t imagine he’s dwelling on what took place as the Patriots sealed their Week 1 win. The QB surely will be turning his focus to the Seattle Seahawks, who will host New England on Sunday night. Thumbnail photo via David Butler II/USA TODAY Sports Images

NFL Rumors: Patriots Docked Draft Pick, Fined $1.1M For Taping Bengals Sideline - NESN

The Cam Newton signing wasn’t the only bit of New England Patriots news to break Sunday night. According to a report by ESPN’s Mike Reiss, the Patriots have been fined $1.1 million and docked a third-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft for illegally recording the Cincinnati Bengals’ sideline ahead of the teams’ Week 15 matchup last December. Additionally, the NFL reportedly prohibited Patriots production crews from shooting any games during the 2020 NFL season, will require “senior club officials” to undergo “training on league operation and game policies” and banned David Mondillo — the Kraft Sports and Entertainment videographer who was caught recording Cincinnati’s sideline as part of a feature on a Patriots advance scout — “from NFL facilities until further notice.” The Patriots also fired Montillo before the NFL handed down its punishment, per Reiss’ report.

After Spygate, the Patriots were fined $250,000, head coach Bill Belichick was fined $500,000 and New England lost its first-round selection in 2008. This latest incident occurred during a Bengals-Cleveland Browns game on Dec. 8. The subsequent NFL investigation spanned nearly seven months. In a team statement released Dec. 9, the Patriots said they “accept full responsibility” for the infraction, describing it as an honest mistake by a member of their production crew, which, Belichick quickly stressed, has “zero involvement” with New England’s football operation. Minutes before news of the Patriots’ punishment hit social media, multiple outlets reported the team had signed Newton, the former Carolina Panthers quarterback, to an incentive-laden one-year contract.
