Patrick Mahomes threw for 166 yards and a touchdown as Kansas City held off Jordan Love and the Packers 13-7 on Sunday. Love started in place of Aaron Rodgers, who tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this week. The reigning MVP missed his first game since the 2017 season. Love responded by going 19 of 34 for 190 yards with a touchdown and an interception.
His TD pass to Allen Lazard with 4:49 left gave Green Bay a chance, but Mahomes threw a third-down dart to Tyreek Hill for a first down that helped the Chiefs run out the clock. The loss ended Green Bay’s seven-game win streak.
Chiefs are now 5-4 on the season, the Packers fall to 7-2.
Kansas City is now just a game and a half behind Las Vegas in the AFC West standing and they face the Raiders in Las Vegas on Sunday night.
