The Kansas City Chiefs have played the St. Louis Rams in an inter-state showdown for the preseason finale. The two teams, which have been playing each other since 2001, have dubbed the game the Governor's Cup.

That may change this year.

According to Rob Demovsky of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, Todd Haley indicated a preseason finale with the Green Bay Packers could be in the works.

"I don't know for sure," Haley said according to Demovsky, "but there was talk of it."

NFL teams are allowed to schedule their own preseason finales (thus the Governor's Cup every year). The Packers have played the Tennessee Titans in the finale for the last eight seasons.

Per the report, the game would be played at Arrowhead Stadium.

Titans head coach said he wants to continue the annual game with the Packers but Demovsky points out that there's not much of a point because the Titans generally play their starters into the third quarter while the Packers' starters play a few snaps and that's it.

I'm not sure if this means the Governor's Cup is off -- Packers game or not.
