Along with the Chiefs, six other teams—the Buffalo Bills, Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers, Pittsburgh Steelers, Seattle Seahawks and Tennessee Titans—are 3-0. Two of them are scheduled to play, though when exactly is now unknown.
Due to COVID-19 concerns, Sunday's clash between the Steelers and Titans has been postponed. The NFL announced the game will be played Monday or Tuesday.
That decision has affected the broadcast map for Sunday's action. Check out the 506Sports map for the latest updates.

Chiefs Looking to Beat Another MVP
Monday night, Kansas City cruised to a 34-20 victory over 2019 NFL MVP Lamar Jackson and the Ravens. This weekend, the Chiefs host Newton—the 2015 league MVP—and the Patriots.
In three games, Newton has guided New England to a 2-1 record and accounted for six touchdowns. He's averaging 287.7 combined yards of total offense, and that versatility will be crucial against a Kansas City defense that frustrated Jackson all game.
The Chiefs surrendered just 97 yards on Jackson's 28 pass attempts, also sacking him four times.
However, the Kansas City defense may be without two key pieces.
Rookie cornerback L'Jarius Sneed will be unavailable because of a broken collarbone, and star defensive lineman Chris Jones is dealing with a groin injury.
But if he's healthy enough to play, the potential return of a veteran defensive lineman would only bolster the unit.
Herbie Teope of the Kansas City Star noted pass-rusher Alex Okafor returned to practice Wednesday. He contributed on a sack and recorded two quarterback hits in Week 1 but hasn't played since then because of a hamstring injury.
No matter who's available, the Chiefs present a strong test because of their firepower on offense.
Newton must be ready for a high-scoring game. Though he's still adjusting to a new coordinator in Josh McDaniels, the pair have impressed Kansas City head coach Andy Reid.
"[McDaniels is] using every factor of Cam. I think Cam's enjoying that," he said, according to Doug Kyed of NESN. "They're playing really good football there."
And unless you reside in the home markets for Buffalo and Las Vegas, Newton's clash with Mahomes and Co. will be broadcast as the featured late-afternoon game of the day.
