In Week 8 of "Sunday Night Football", the Kansas City Chiefs (5-2) host the Green Bay Packers (6-1) at Arrowhead Stadium. The game was meant to feature two of the NFL's premier quarterbacks, but only one will be able to suit up for this week's marquee Sunday matchup, in which the visiting Packers are 4.5-point favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

Is Aaron Rodgers Playing vs Chiefs?

Aaron Rodgers will suit up for his eighth consecutive start of the season, after playing in all 16 of his games last year. He has led the Packers to first place in the NFC North, and has done so without his star wide receiver Davante Adams, who will miss his fourth straight game tonight with a toe injury. Rodgers will have deep threat WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling, who was questionable during the week, but ultimately not on Green Bay's final injury report.

Is Patrick Mahomes Playing vs Packers?

Patrick Mahomes will miss his first start of the past two seasons, as he sits out tonight's matchup recovering from a dislocated right kneecap. Matt Moore will make the start at QB, after throwing for 117 yards and a touchdown in relief during Week 8's win over the Denver Broncos.

Kansas City Chiefs Inactives

The Chiefs have several other key injuries, as they will also be without defensive end Frank Clark, cornerback Kendall Fuller and left tackle Eric Fisher.
