1. Chiefs vs. Packers

Even if Patrick Mahomes doesn’t end up suiting up Sunday night, this battle between the Kansas City Chiefs and Green Bay Packers still has the potential to be the best game to top off the weekend.

Plenty could happen from now until the end of December, but if this ended up being an early Super Bowl preview in Miami, football fans wouldn’t be disappointed one bit.

After spending the previous two seasons watching the playoffs from home, the Packers are finally looking like the team football fans are used to seeing from a few years ago as a top playoff threat in the NFC.

Watching Aaron Rodgers continue to play at a high level has truly been incredible to witness, and depending on how things play out with Mahomes, the Packers star could quickly become a serious MVP candidate.

But before jumping that far ahead, Rodgers knows what’s at stake for Sunday if they can earn another win on the road over the Chiefs.
