Kansas City - With Aaron Rodgers ruled out due to COVID-19, the Packers turned to second-year quarterback Jordan Love on Sunday. With his family in attendance, Love was thrown to the wolves. He completed 19 of 34 passes for 190 yards, one touchdown, and one interception.

Luckily for the Pack, Kansas City's offense didn't fare much better. Green Bay's defense held Patrick Mahomes to only 166 yards through the air and one touchdown. 

However, special teams would spell disaster for the Packers. Mason Crosby missed one field goal, had another blocked, and a muffed punt turned into three points for the Chiefs.

In the end, Kansas City sealed the win with a Mahomes pass to Tyreek Hill. Final score: 13-7.

Next up for Green Bay: A home game against Seattle next Sunday.
