The Packers vs Chiefs live stream would normally have people looking forward to a Rodgers vs Mahomes match-up, but unfortunately this time around that's not the case. Three-time MVP Aaron Rodgers tested positive for COVID-19 and will have to miss this game. Now Mahomes will try to make this NFL live stream the last game the Chiefs go into as anything less than a plus-.500 team.

The Packers (7-1) were coming off a high as they looked ahead to this week's matchup with the Chiefs. Green Bay just knocked off the undefeated Cardinals with a 24-21 victory despite not having three of their top wide receivers. The man most responsible for that win, Aaron Rodgers is out Sunday for due to a positive COVID test.

According to the NFL network "Rodgers received homeopathic treatment...he previously had sought and was denied an exemption from the NFL-NFLPA COVID-19 protocols based on his antibody levels this summer, which left his status as unvaccinated."

Now the Packers will turn to Jordan Love as their starter in Rodgers' absence. Love was the 24th overall pick in the 2020 NFL draft, but has only seen game action twice. He complete 5-of-his-7 passes for 68 yards in Green Bay's week one loss to the Saints. This game will mark his first career start.

The Chiefs (4-4) will look to go over the .500 mark for the first time since their week one win over the Browns. Patrick Mahomes and company had just enough to beat the Giants Monday night at Arrowhead, 20-17. In the win, Mahomes still didn't look like the MVP we've seen in the past. He completed just 60.4% of his passes and threw his tenth interception on the season.

Derrick Gore and Darrel Williams were able to step up for the Chiefs in the run game, combining for 97 yards on 24 carries and a touchdown. Tyreke Hill was also their to help out Mahomes with 12 catches for 94 yards and a score.

The Chiefs are 7.5-point favorites against the Packers. The over/under is 48.

Packers Inactives: Vernon Scott (S), La'Darius Hamilton (LB), Isaiah McDuffie (LB), Kingsley Keke (DL)

 Chiefs Inactives: DeAndre Baker (CB), Price Tega Wanogho (OT), Mike Remmers (OT), Dan Brown (TE), Khalen Saunders (DT)
