The undefeated Green Bay Packers face the Kansas City Chiefs Dec. 18 in Arrowhead Stadium. This is the Packers last game on the road this season and should come away with the win Sunday.
While the Packers have been an explosive offense, last week it was their defense which helped them come away with the dominating win against the Oakland Raiders. It may have been the first game all season the Packers looked to have played a complete game.
The Packers offense was great on the ground with running back Ryan Grant having a break out game. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers continued to be in good form, though it was not one of his better games.
The special teams performed well with kicker Mason Crosby hitting all of his field goal attempts and the defense played well holding the Raiders under 20 points and also scored a touchdown late off of a fumble.
It looks like the Packers are finally putting it together as a team, where the Chiefs, are seemingly falling apart.
The Chiefs fired Head Coach Todd Haley, which is a questionable decision since the he led the team to the playoffs the season before. The Chiefs have been decimated by injury this season and that makes the firing to me, questionable. But nonetheless the Chiefs are at the opposite end of the spectrum then the Packers.
What can the Chiefs do this weekend to beat the Packers? Play hard, get some luck and hope the Packers beat themselves.
I’ve been watching the Packers all season and from what I have seen they are the only ones who can beat themselves. Yes, the Packers are a bit banged up and will not have wide receiver Greg Jennings and might not have running back James Starks, but it won’t stop the Packers from winning this football game.
The Packers will pass the eye test this weekend as I travel to Kansas City to get my first look of the Pack in person, not television. Look for Rodgers to have another great day against the Chiefs and the Packers defense to dominate as the Packers win 41-20.
