Packers-Chiefs Game Review: The Good, Unknown & The Bad
On Sunday, we had zero ideas what to expect from the Green Bay Packers. They had a quarterback out there who never played a regular season game before in Jordan Love. This game felt like house money honestly. It’s an AFC opponent so no tiebreakers are involved. The Packers’ lead in the NFC North is already at the point where it looks like Green Bay’s to lose. But even though this game had little importance, the Packers were in until the bitter end. And you wanted the game a little bit as it went on. Similar to what happened in Arizona, there was an opportunity to cash the house money. But it wasn’t meant to be as Green Bay falls to Kansas City, 13-7. Here were my thoughts from last night’s game on the defense, Jordan Love, and special teams.

This game told us a few things. It told us that the defense is really good. I don’t care if the Kansas City Chiefs are a shell of themselves. They still have Patrick Mahomes. They still have Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce. This offense should be good, and Green Bay held them to 13 points. Three of those were due to a special teams error. I’ve been telling you guys for a few weeks now that I thought this defense was good, and this week, everyone is on board with the idea. They’re the stars of the game.
Special teams was a complete clusterfuck. I’m not sure how you fix it either. Green Bay does have a lot of injuries, but I don’t think depth is to blame for the carelessness across the board. Packers need to fix these issues, or this could be the thing that comes back to haunt them in January.
