The first Super Bowl was played way back in 1966 between the Green Bay Packers and Kansas City Chiefs. Fifty-three years later, a lot has changed but the two teams who played that first Super Bowl are still two of the best teams in football, and they'll go head-to-head on Sunday.
Although Patrick Mahomes is a "stretch" to play this week, per Andy Reid via ESPN, the Green Bay-Kansas City game is the most intriguing matchup of Week 8. It's getting the respect it deserves, too, as NBC is featuring the game on Sunday Night Football at 8:20 P.M ET.

Packers Riding Three-Game Win Streak

Green Bay started the year 3-0 before dropping its fourth game to the Philadelphia Eagles. After suffering their first loss, they went on to win three more games, and that's where we stand now. The Packers will play Kansas City this weekend on Sunday Night Footballand are hoping to avoid a letdown like the last time they won three games in a row.

Green Bay is no stranger to playing in primetime. Two of their biggest wins came in the bright lights, as they beat Detroit on Monday Night Football and Chicago on Thursday Night Football. In those two games, Green Bay's defense allowed just 12.5 points per game. Overall, the Packers rank 9th in the NFL in points allowed per game (19.9) and 4th in takeaways (13).
Offensively, the Packers have battled multiple injuries this season, most notably at the wide receiver position. Davante Adams hasn't played in October at all and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game. Tight end Jimmy Graham hasn't missed time like Adams but he's also questionable for the game vs. Kansas City.

Mahomes Practicing For KC

Patrick Mahomes is progressing faster than it was initially thought, it seems, as the star quarterback has practiced on consecutive days. Mahomes is "highly limited" as practice, per Mike Florio of NBC Sports, and if he cannot go, the job lies in the hands of veteran Matt Moore. Mahomes, despite practicing, is still listed as doubtful for the game vs. Green Bay.

Kansas City's offense relies heavily on Mahomes so it will be interesting to see what Matt Moore can do if he's tabbed with the job. He had to close the game against Denver after Mahomes got hurt last Thursday and he was adequate but not great. He completed 10 of 19 passes for 117 yards, though he deserves credit for not throwing any picks and only taking one sack. In his career, he has a passer rating of 81.2.
Expect a lot of LeSean McCoy if Mahomes cannot go. McCoy has been great since coming over to KC before the season, and he currently leads the team in rushing yards (322). Plus, the Chiefs also use running backs a lot in their short passing game; both McCoy and Damien Williams have 15 receptions apiece this year.
