Location: Lambeau Field
The 1-1 Kansas City Chiefs head into Green Bay to take on the 2-0 Packers in this Monday night NFL match-up on Sept. 28, 2015 on the grass of Lambeau Field. Kick-off is scheduled for 8:30PM ET.
Kansas City suffered a heart-breaking 31-24 loss to Denver last Thursday. They allowed the tying TD with :36 seconds left and then RB Jamaal Charles (21-125-1) lost his second fumble which was returned for a 21-yard TD with :27 seconds left. QB Alex Smith threw for 191 yards but 2 interceptions. They committed 5 TOs on the day and will need to keep better control of the ball when playing the Packers. OLB Justin Houston had 2 of the team's 3 sacks.
Green Bay held on to defeat Seattle 27-17 last Sunday. QB Aaron Rodgers was 25-33 for 249 yards and 2 TDs. Backup RB James Starks ran for 95 yards on 20 carries as Green Bay displayed great balance on offense. WR Randall Cobb had 8 catches for 116 yards as he was much more of a focus than in Week 1. The defense had 2 sacks and held RB Marshawn Lynch to only 41 yards on 15 carries. They will have to be ready for Charles who will want to atone for his mistakes last week.
Kansas City: 21.55
Green Bay: 26.27
Chiefs at Bengals
Packers at 49ers
The Chiefs never trailed this season until that fumble with 27 seconds left in the fourth quarter was run back for a TD. They out-yarded both of their opponents and while they didn't put up huge yardage numbers against the Broncos, they did amass 141 more yards than the Ravens did. Green Bay with Rodgers behind center at Lambeau Field has been nearly a guaranteed win after his rookie season, so we won't call for a straight up win, but we do think that the Chiefs are the toughest opponent that the Packers have faced this season. The extra rest keeps them in this until the final whistler.
