GREEN BAY, Wis. (WSAW) - The NFL owners have officially approved a 17 game regular season. The Packers will travel to Kansas City to face the Cheifs as part of their added game.

The last time the Packers played the Chiefs was in 2019 when the Packers won 31-24. Kansas City’s star quarterback Patrick Mahomes did not play in that game due to a knee injury.

Green Bay has never faced Mahomes.

A previous version of this story stated that the Packers will face the Chiefs in Week 18. Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy confirmed that may not be the case. Murphy said that the NFL will schedule the game wherever it sees fit.
