These two teams have a pretty even rivalry – the Buffalo Bills have the edge in this series 27-24-1, but the Kansas City Chiefs aren’t far behind.

Packers vs. Bills (Oct. 30)
Old faithful Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers gets a shot at one of the NFL’s up-and-coming greats, Josh Allen of the Buffalo Bills. The Bills have taken the victory 8 of the 13 times they’ve met the Packers but lost to the Packers 22-0 when they last saw each other in 2018, so how this Sunday Night Football matchup ends is anyone’s guess. You can find Sunday Night Football on NBC even if you don’t have cable.
