13 and Uh-Oh

The lowly Kansas City Chiefs have beaten the Green Bay Packers, 19-14. Most people were expecting a lopsided Packer victory; the Chiefs have an interim head coach after firing Todd Haley earlier this week, and their starting quarterback is on injured reserve, as is their best defensive back.

On the other hand, Green Bay receivers dropped at least four passes in the first half alone, and two offensive linemen were injured and did not return. Aaron Rodgers also had an off-day, though his completion percentage would still have been over 60 percent without the drops. And so they move from 13-0 to 13-1. Still not a bad place to be.

Here’s hoping they put up a better fight next Sunday, when they play the Chicago Bears in Lambeau Field.

One response to “13 and Uh-Oh

  1. I own a sports website where I also picked the Packers to win in a lopsided game. Although, I don’t think that Orton is a downgrade to Cassel. It’s an upgrade.
    Regardless, the Chiefs may have done what the Giants did to the Patriots in 2007. Exposed their weaknesses. I think the Packers have some work to do if they want to beat the best teams in the NFC in the playoffs (read: the Saints).
