It was an unusual Week 5 in the NFL, with games played out of order due to positive COVID-19 results within a few organizations.

Patriots wide receiver N’Keal Harry and defensive tackle Lawrence Guy were forced to adapt to the schedule change, while Kalen Ballage found a spot on a practice squad roster.
