Patrick Mahomes set to play on Lambeau field for the first time



NFL scheduling quirks have prevented Mahomes from playing in Green Bay since he debuted for Kansas City in 2017. The Chiefs have not visited Lambeau in eight years, two seasons before Mahomes was drafted — and Sunday night’s contest will mark just the third Chiefs-Packers game in Green Bay this century.

“I’m extremely excited for it,” Mahomes said Wednesday. “I’ve watched it my whole entire life, and I know it’s going to be a hostile environment. The fans are going to be loud, it’s going to be a lot like Arrowhead is to other teams.”

Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin is hallowed ground in the NFL. Scores of iconic players have plied their trade at the stadium nicknamed “The Frozen Tundra” — but Patrick Mahomes isn’t one of them.

That all changes Sunday, when Mahomes and his Kansas City Chiefs visit the Packers for Sunday Night Football. Surprisingly, this will be the two-time Super Bowl champion’s first time touching the grass at Lambeau — and it sounds like he is salivating at the opportunity.

The Packers have a 3-2 record at Lambeau this season and need a win to remain in the hunt for a wild-card berth in the NFC. Green Bay has won two of the past three meetings with Kansas City — but this one won’t have Aaron Rodgers under center, which explains why the Chiefs are six-point favorites.

Nevertheless, the Lambeau atmosphere could be tricky for Mahomes to navigate, and he will need his receivers to avoid the drops that have plagued the Kansas City offense at different points this season.
