For the last several years, the Kansas City Chiefs and Green Bay Packers were two teams always waiting for a primetime matchup to be able to watch two of the best quarterbacks ever go toe to toe with Patrick Mahomes and Aaron Rodgers. Injuries and illness kept any such showdown from happening in the past, and this year, Rodgers is now with the New York Jets which meant the Packers' matchup no longer mattered as much.
From there, the Packers' early season results likely kept fans from even thinking much about this game in Week 13 since they started 2-5 on the year and fell immediately behind the Detroit Lions in an upside-down NFC North.
Since then, however, the Packers have been playing inspired football and the season is longer than fans often realize. That makes this week's game for the Chiefs and Packers an important one since Green Bay has now won three of its last four games. They've beaten the Rams, the Chargers, and the Lions in that span, and now they sit at 5-6 with hopes of climbing back into a wild card spot for the postseason.
Jordan Love is playing better as the team's starting quarterback these days, and the team's pass rush looked solid against Jared Goff and the Lions a week ago. How will they fare this week? Can K.C. maintain their newfound offensive momentum? It should be a good game on primetime in Week 13.

Series History between Chiefs and Packers
The series history between the two franchises involved in Sunday's game is a storied one, even if they rarely actually play each other. That's because the initial game was of such major consequence, a Super Bowl matchup back in Super Bowl I in which the Packers wiped the floor with the Chiefs in a 35-10 win. Fortunately for K.C., they hold a fairly decisive 8-5-1 edge in the all-time series, including a win in the most recent matchup—a 13-7 defensive battle during the '21 season.
