How Will This Affect the Teams?
The game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Buffalo Bills was supposed to start at 1 p.m. EST on Sunday, but it has been delayed due to a severe weather forecast. This game is being played in Orchard Park, New York, which is in the Buffalo area. The game will now start at 4:25 p.m. EST.
The game was originally supposed to be played on Sunday, but was postponed to Monday due to COVID-19 concerns within the Titans organization. As a result of the postponement, both teams had to make significant changes to their rosters.
The most notable change for the Chiefs is that they have moved quarterback Matt Moore from the practice squad to the active roster. Moore will serve as the backup to starter Patrick Mahomes. The Chiefs also added two new players to their practice squad: wide receiver Gehrig Dieter and offensive lineman Yasir Durant.
Meanwhile, the Bills made a series of changes to their roster in anticipation of the game. First, they activated wide receiver Andre Roberts from injured reserve. Roberts had been out since Week 1 with a knee injury. The Bills also promoted linebacker Corey Thompson and defensive end Mike Love from the practice squad. Finally, they released offensive lineman Ryan Bates and linebacker Deon Lacey.
The game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Buffalo Bills was scheduled for Thursday night, but has been moved to Sunday due to weather. This means that there will be some changes to the NFL schedule.
The game was originally supposed to be played on Thursday Night Football, but due to the impending severe weather in the area, it has been moved to Sunday. The game will still be played in Buffalo, but it will be played at 1 pm ET instead of its original 8:20 pm ET time slot.
This means that there will be some changes to the NFL schedule for Week 6.

The Chiefs vs. Bills game will now be played on Sunday at 1 pm ET.
