When the NFL announced the divisional rotation for the new 17th game of the season, there was one in particular that fans liked.
It was Aaron Rodgers and the Packers coming to Arrowhead Stadium to face Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs. Some who thought the game was intended for a national TV audience were surprised when the NFL scheduled it for Fox Sports.
In the end, it’s almost a national game as people in all 50 states will see the Chiefs and Packers play, even though Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers was ruled out on Wednesday after testing positive. for COVID-19.
Every person in 47 states will see the game. Because Fox also broadcast the Cardinals-49ers game at the same time, most of Arizona and California will see these teams, along with part of Nevada.
