Chiefs vs. Packers live score, updates, highlights from NFL 'Sunday Night Football' game

The frozen tundra plays host to this week edition of “Sunday Night Football” in a matchup between two of the NFL’s most storied franchises.

The Chiefs and Packers are set to duel in freezing conditions at Lambeau Field on Sunday. And although both sides find themselves in vastly different situations heading into the affair, one way or another, it should prove critical to the sweeping carousel that is the postseason race.

Kansas City (8-3) has picked up where it left off last campaign, beating up on the league’s minnows to rocket itself up to the top of the AFC West. Andy Reid’s squad hasn’t been quite the juggernaut its proven to be in years past โ€” such is the case when your receiving corps is the most ineffective in football in terms of dropped passes. Still, when you have Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and Chris Jones, you have a chance.

Green Bay (5-6) meanwhile finds itself in the opening stages of a new era. Jordan Love has been solid in his first season as a starter, even bringing the Packers on the cusp of playoff contention.

Love’s been a guiding light through 11 games. But he’s not alone, either. Romeo Doubs has seven touchdowns on the year, while Preston Smith, Rashan Gary and Kenny Clark have combined to form one of the more underrated back lines in the whole of the league.

There’s no guarantee that it will be a classic, especially with inclement weather appearing to be on the horizon.

Still, this is football at its most brilliant. Slimey, tender, ruthless and respectful. All within the confines of the pantheon of NFL excellence. What could go wrong?

The Sporting News is tracking live updates from the Chiefs and Packers’ ‘Sunday Night Football’ contest from Lambeau Field. Follow along to see all the highlights as Patrick Mahomes and Co. look to return to the paramount among NFL teams.

Chiefs vs. Packers live updates, highlights from ‘Sunday Night Football’

(All times Eastern)

10:11 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN! And again! Loves lines one right into the path of Watson, who leaps high to rip it from the sky to add to the Packers’ edge. What a showcase by Love and what a grab by Watson.

Packers 21, Chiefs 12

10:10 p.m.: Love places a throw perfectly between triple coverage, hitting a streaking Romeo Doubs to put Green Bay on the doorstep of the end zone once more. What a phenomenal throw by the youngster.

10:03 p.m.: Love hits Dillon out in the front, who makes his defender miss before racing beyond the marker for a first down. The first-year starter continues to make the right play in the cold. Strong display thus far.

9:57 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN! Chiefs get into the end zone finally, courtesy of a Pacheco scamper through the midway. He’s unable to find the target again on the two-point conversion, however, keeping the Packers in control (just barely).

Packers 14, Chiefs 12

9:54 p.m.: Mahomes does it again! Delicate touch pass between the Magic Man and Kelce results in yet another first down on third-and-long. Kelce’s up to 81 yards on four grabs. Kansas City is threatening to breach into the red zone.

9:47 p.m.: Mahomes hits Kelce with a floated effort as the Chiefs open the first half with a flourish. Need more of that going forward.

End of second quarter: Packers 14, Chiefs 6

9:10 p.m.: FIELD GOAL! Kansas City’s explosive offense has been held in check thus far. Despite showing flashes of what they can accomplish, the Chiefs were held to another field goal in this one. Yikes…

Packers 14. Chiefs 6

9:00 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN! Green Bay’s second drive of the game ends much like the first, with Love firing an arrow to Watson to add to Green Bay’s early advantage.

Packers 14, Chiefs 3

End of first quarter: Packers 7, Chiefs 3

8:50 p.m.: FIELD GOAL! Harrison Butler sinks his field goal after a pair of sacks relegate Kansas City to bringing its special teams onto the field.

Packers 7, Chiefs 3

8:48 p.m.: Isaiah Pacheco gallops on the outside to grab a heap of yardage. Kansas City is on the brink of a score.

8:47 p.m.: Great composure by Mahomes and Marquez Valdez-Scantling, both of whom combine to keep Kansas City in the ascendancy.

8:45 p.m.: Clyde Edwards-Helair keeps the chains moving after strutting through the trenches on third down. KC is into Green Bay territory.

8:42 p.m.: Patrick Mahomes leads the Chiefs out for their first possession. And it’s gotten off to a good start thus far; two plays, two first downs for Kansas City.

8:39 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN! Love hits Ben Sims for his first career touchdown! Great throw, great catch, and an even better drive. Doesn’t get much slicker than that to start the game.

Packers 7, Chiefs 0

8:35 p.m.: Dontayvion Wicks makes the catch though traffic, racing beyond the first down marker to bring Green Bay on the cusp of the end zone.

8:28 p.m.: A.J. Dillon bursts through the mire to pick up the first down on third-and-short. Decent start for the Packers so far, who have climbed down the gridiron with relative ease in the opening few minutes.

8:26 p.m.: Wonderful pitch and catch between Love and one of his favorite targets, Christian Watson. Good for a 20-yard gain. Green Bay trots into Kansas City territory.

8:23 p.m.: The ball tumbles into the end zone and away we go! Love and the Packers spill onto the field to lead off tonight’s matchup in the cold.

8:22 p.m.: Jordan Love’s first career start came against the Chiefs in 2021. He’ll be hoping for a better showing this time around. Given the level that he’s been playing at in recent weeks, he has a good chance of doing so.

8:00 p.m.: Will Kelce put on a showcase in front of her beau? The world will find out soon enough…

7:40 p.m.: The Chiefs are rocking their all-white kits. Perfect for a winter wonderland like Lambeau Field, don’t you think?

7:35 p.m.: Taylor’s fans are in euphoria at the sight of her at tonight’s game. Can you blame them?

7:20 p.m.: Taylor Swift is in attendance for tonight’s game. Hopefully, she’ll be greeted with an enthralling affair.
