Hope you didn't take this one off cause it was such a gimme, thought it wasn't even worth watching the "beating"

Well, personally I didn't see this one coming. To be completely honest I thought that the Packers were pretty much going to go all out through 3 quarters for the rest of the regular season, this game and then 2 more at home. I figured they would have enough of a lead in each, in order, Chiefs, Bears, Lions by the end of the 3rd beginning of the 4th that the starters could get a little rest and start getting their minds right for the Superbowl run.....and if I had to pick one game that would be an upset, a game that would end their bid for a perfect regular season and then continued complete perfect entire season including playoffs, THIS WOULD DEFINITELY NOT BE THE GAME THEY WOULD LOSE. Shit, I didn't think the Chiefs had a chance to be within 30 by the end of the first half basically. 

The Kansas City Chiefs came ready to play. I don't know whether it was the fact that they had an undefeated team coming to their home field at Arrowhead stadium with a chance to knock them off and do what no other team could do in the last 19 straight games. I don't know whether it was because they talked up this game as a chance for a bright spot in an otherwise disappointing season since the loss of Matt Cassell. Or I don't know whether they rallied behind their temporary coach for the remainder of the season because they're head coach Todd Haley got fired just this past week. For whatever reason though, the Chiefs came to play on the defensive side of the ball, and that defense held one of the best offenses of all-time to a total of only 14 points. THAT'S RIGHT, THE CHIEFS HELD THE PACKERS TO 14. It's not much of something to yell about when you put up 19 on that Packers defense, but to hold reigning NFL MVP of the Superbowl Aaron Rodgers to only 2 touchdowns for his offense your def doing something right.

Overall it was 4 field goals and a score of a touchdown in the 4th quarter for the Chiefs and a single touchdown in the 3rd and 4th quarters each for the Green Bay Packers who said after the game they weren't even sure how to feel....."it was the first time they have lost in 19 games". That spanned nearly an entire year for them, and many players simpily said, "it sucks". Well, next week against the Bears they'll have their chance to take their frustrations out on the conferance rival, but with a look towards the playoffs just a few weeks away I'd be careful with letting Brian Urlacher get too many shots with his speed and power to put a hit on Rodgers and blow up their hopes for a title run.....
