Patrick Mahomes out Sunday night

It’s surprising that this even needs to be said, but Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes will not play on Sunday night against the Packers.

When Mahomes suffered a knee injury eight days ago against the Broncos, it appeared that he would miss multiple games, and there were even fears that he could miss the season. But after he practiced on a limited basis this week, some wondered if he could possibly play Sunday night.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid confirmed today that there’s no chance: Mahomes has officially been ruled out.

Matt Moore will get the start for the Chiefs. He completed 10 of 19 passes for 117 yards and a touchdown, with no turnovers, after Mahomes went down against the Broncos, and the Chiefs will hope he can play that well against the Packers. There’s obviously no chance of Moore playing as well as Mahomes, but he might be able to hold down the fort well enough to give the Chiefs a chance.

Kyle Shurmur will serve as Moore’s backup.

  1. Mahomes out along with 5 other starters for KC.

    The NFL should seriously consider flexing this game out of prime time if it’s not too late to do so. This one won’t even be close.

  2. Hopefully Santa runs him out there next week before he’s healed and completely wrecks their season. 5-11 would be hilarious. And then Mahomes can demand even more money next year since he’s literally their most valuable player.

  3. As a Chiefs fan I’m hoping KC can go 2-2 vs the Packers, Vikings, Chargers and Titans.

    Bad thing is the two toughest are home games against the Packers and Vikings.

    Mahomes injury might cost them a bye in the playoffs, but it will also force them to win 2 away games in the playoffs, to get to the SB.

    But so far this year, KC has played better away than they have at home.

  4. For the love of God, can we give it a rest . They said a few weeks. Did you really think he was going to play?

  5. I am bit disappointed Patrick isn’t playing this week. A little of marquee matchup is gone, but anytime you go to Arrowhead it is a tough road game. The Packers will be ready though.

    I will enjoy next week watching the meltdown when he is announced as active for the Vikings game.

  6. It’s not who you play, it’s when you play them.

    While KC with a backup is no gimme, the chips definitely fell the Packers way here.

  7. Is this what the Media will do everyday when he comes back in 4 weeks.Will they have a 24hrs 7 days a week channel set up with updates every day and status on every Game till he comes back.

  8. we all knew this. it was smoke and mirrors in an attempt to throw off packers game planning. not complicated…

    well there goes the Chiefs hopes of battling the Patsies for the top seed. Guess GB will just have to take care of them in the SB

    There’s no shame in losing to Rodgers and the Packers in the Super Bowl. Foles and Eli Manning though? Absolutely horrible…

    If this were true then why didn’t they wait until Sunday so the Packers wouldn’t know until 90 mins before the game? There is no rule that they had to announce this on Friday.

    Everything isn’t as dramatic and conspiracy based as you seem to believe.

  11. “There’s obviously no chance of Moore playing as well as Mahomes”

    Technically he’s going to play a lot better than Mahomes because, well, he’s playing and Mahomes isn’t.

    Also, Mahomes hadn’t exactly been lighting it up the last few weeks on that ankle. People are sleeping on Moore. He isn’t Mahomes or Rodgers, but he isn’t Luke Falk either. Moore might stun some people Sunday.

  12. KC is tough to play, they are going to want to win this for themselves and Mahomes so I expect to get the best the Chiefs have. GB hasn’t played many road games yet this season, the ones they have were tough, so hopefully they can come out on top again.

  13. The Chief game is still going to be a difficult out for GB.
    The game’s at Arrowhead, and they have a veteran QB leading some unique playmakers with enough speed to scare anybody in this league.
    I know the Packers wont be taking this game as lightly as some of the fans appear to be.

  14. “….hapless Packers.” Are you kidding? No Packer fan here, but that just me be the dumbest post of the day. Congratulations.

  15. If Matt Moore has ANY time in the pocket he’ll have a decent chance to move the chains, maybe get a couple of TD’s. Still, not enough against Aaron Rodgers.
    If KC is smart they’ll use this week as an extra BYE to rest their players.

    Most sensitive fan base in sports. They hear the word “Packers”, and it triggers them – starts with a simple neck twitch, then a quick upper back spasm, then their beady blue eyes get all big, eyebrows pointed north, and then they talk real hyper, while their shoulders go up and down, arms flailing all over the place. Very entertaining.

  18. Why is a GB@KC game a Viking fan landing zone? Give it a rest.

    This is going to be great game regardless if Mahomes is playing or not. KC always plays well at home and as a Packers fan, I have a soft spot for this team and hope we meet in the Super Bowl again. I am hoping for no injuries and a cleanly officiated game. Plus…. the Vikings still suck.

    KC’s best chance for a SB was last year but blew it twice to the Pats. For the love of all holy will someone knock off the Pats!

    I’m a lifelong Bear fan & have no love for the Pats. But I’ve never understood the constant Patriot hate & outrage i always read on this board? From my perspective as an avid football fan, I find the Patriots the most interesting and impressive NFL team to watch – and I find them even more impressive each year they continue their excellence. They somehow take players that would barely start on most other NFL teams. Yet in the age of free agency and salary caps they continue to defy all odds by consistently playing at a level WELL above the complete rest of the NFL.

    Its not only amazing as a feat, but watching them play is like watching an elite military unit. They make the rest of the NFL appear unorganized inconstant and unprofessional. As for their alleged “cheating”…I WISH the Bears coaching staff could be that clever–just ONCE!

    I’m impressed how well you hide your jealousy and envy of the Patriots!
    I’ve learned to watch and enjoy something we’ll probably never see again.
    So do what I did, sit back, and think…It’s only a few more years…It’s only a few more years…

  21. The Purple Stalker surely must have a great career, tons of friends, and a family that loves him if he has time to post here 100+ times a day on multiple SN’s crying about the Packers and their fans.

  22. “Most sensitive fan base in sports.

    When I picture the Barneys I see a bunch of stumbling drunk people in purple dinosaur suits staggering around puking inside their costumes muttering about cheese, Rodgers and Green Bay.

    Lolz

  23. may come down to an unexpected turnover and KC needs just a FG to win … can they travel the 55 yards to get in position in the last minute still having one time out and get it done ???

  24. Feel bad that Mohomes is hurt, hate to see any player hurt. Now it’s up to coach Andy to trip over himself and coach them out of the playoffs.

    So if Foles winds up beating Rodgers in the SB this comment will come back to haunt you.

  26. Seems like most of the focus of the Packer fans is squarely on the Vikings. That rattling noise you hear is the Packer fans shaking their heads in disbelief! Scared much!

  27. When do we finally start feeling sorry for Queens fans roiling in their own self-pity, convinced the league really wants GB to win? The refs are biased. The schedule makers benefit GB, and on and on.

    Do your families a favor. Go play with your kids. Pay some attention to your dog. Surprise your wife with a nice dinner and tell her how much she means to you. And for the benefit of the rest of us please stop obsessing about the Packers. Life is too short. Live it.

  29. Losing to Foles or Eli Manning? Who cares! The 15-1 Packers lost to the Giants in their first playoff game back in 2011. How about all those times they lost to Colin Kaepernick, Matt Ryan, and Carson Palmer? It goes to show that quarterbacks don’t play quarterbacks in football.

  30. Packer fans need a history lesson. We all do. And it’s Halloween, so take a seat around the campfire here and let me tell you a story. If you want to adapt it for the stage, I’ll give you the credit line.

    OK … you ready? Hey you — I’m talking to you. Put the smores down.

    It’s 2011. The Packers are 8-0. Folks are celebrating a special season. Unbenownst to Packer Nation, a senior data analyst from Alexandria, VA just realized that every team the Packers had faced so far have either

    1. Had a terrible record
    2. Been in the middle of a 3 or 4 game losing streak
    3a. Faced a rookie QB (e.g., Christian Ponder in his 1st and career starts) or
    3b. A new QB from a trade or a second stringer due to injury or demotion sustained the prior game

    Against all odds, this streak would continue into and throughout the second half of the season.

    The Packers took their 13-0 record into Kansas City, where the woeful Chiefs had just fired their coach, promoting Romeo Crennel. It’s his first game. To make matters worse, Crennel benched the starter for Kyle Orton.

    Somehow the Chiefs prevailed. I believe it was 24-9.

    The Packers finished 15-1, that bizarre outcome in KC the only thing that stood between them and a perfect regular season.

    Next up, the divisional round of the playoffs and a home game against the Giants, who the Packers defeated in New York while the Giants were in the throes of a 4 game losing streak.

    Final score.

    Giants 38, Packers 20. And Eli Manning got your skinny toe!

  31. Endtimesparty: What’s the point? Nice history lesson but who cares? After tomorrow night, Packers will be 7-1 and the history lesson will be over.

  32. Bunners1. Your response proves the point of my lesson. A victory over a Chiefs teams playing its first (and possibly only) game without its star QB is not all that diagnostic — and even less the kind of challenge thst will benefit Green Bay in the long run. Green Bay should rather want to face Mahomes — regardless of the outcome — bc it will give them the best lens through which to evaluate the team. And it will make the team stronger.

  33. I’m curious why many here think it’s a shoe-in for GB with Mahomes out. Rodgers skills and experience might be the differentiator but I think it’ll be a competitive game and come down to the wire.
