NFL: Green Bay Packers at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Game

For Week 9 of the NFL season, the Kansas City Chiefs host the Green Bay Packers at Arrowhead Stadium. Kickoff is set for 3:25 p.m. Arrowhead Time. The game will be broadcast on Fox — locally on WDAF/4.

The defending champions of both the AFC West and the AFC, the Chiefs have had a disappointing beginning to their 2021 season. Now with a 4-4 record that ties them with the Denver Broncos for last place in the division, the Chiefs can ill-afford any loss on their remaining schedule — and now face three of the league’s top teams in consecutive weeks.

The first of these is the Packers, whose 7-1 record gives them the top spot in the NFC North — and after eight weeks, the entire NFC. They arrive at Arrowhead with 10 days of rest after knocking off the NFL’s last undefeated team with a 24-21 victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday Night Football.

The two teams last met in late October of 2019. The Chiefs had struggled to open that season, too — coming into the game with a 5-3 record — while Packers were riding high at 7-1. Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was recuperating from the dislocated kneecap he had sustained the previous week against the Broncos, so the reigning NFL MVP wasn’t active for the game against Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers, who held off backup quarterback Matt Moore in a 31-24 Packers victory at Arrowhead.

Sunday’s game is therefore the second time these two quarterbacks were supposed to meet in an NFL game — but as we found out earlier this week, it was once again not to be. Rodgers tested positive for COVID-19 and has been ruled out of the game. That means second-year quarterback Jordan Love will make his first career start at Arrowhead Stadium. Love’s only pro action came in Week 1 of this year, as the Packers were getting blown out by the New Orleans Saints. He finished 5 of 7 for 68 yards.

There couldn't be a better time for Mahomes to shake whatever demons have been troubling him. If he can, this could mark a turning point for the Chiefs. If he cannot, Sunday could mark the beginning of three very long weeks for his team — and its fans.
