The Kansas City Chiefs have pulled off what was thought nigh impossible this week: defeating the Green Bay Packers. It was what the Denver Broncos were unable to do earlier in the season when Aaron Rodgers combined for six touchdowns against them. Instead, the Chiefs were able to stop the Packers in a 19-14 victory.
Ryan Succop had put the Chiefs in front, 6-0, at halftime, but it was quickly turned in favor of the Packers in the third quarter. Donald Driver caught an Rodgers touchdown pass midway through the frame, but a third Succop field goal had the Chiefs right back in it.
In the fourth quarter, Succop connected on his fourth field goal and then saw Jackie Battle run for a touchdown several minutes later for the 19-7 lead. They needed that last touchdown since Rodgers ran for an eight-yard touchdown seconds before the two-minute warning.
Rodgers was just 17-of-35 for 235 yards while Kyle Orton had 23 completions on 31 attempts for 299 yards.
The 6-8 Chiefs finish out the season with games against the Oakland Raiders and the Kansas City Chiefs. They have a slight chance to win the AFC West, but only slight.
