- Jordan Love’s first chance to prove himself
- Is KC back?
- How do the players returning from the Packers COVID-19 list look
Typically RedZone is the go-to channel for 4:00 games, but in my opinion, this is probably the most exciting game of the week. The Chiefs are coming off a win vs the Giants where they did not look imposing. Chiefs receivers were dropping many balls, Mahomes still had his turnover problems, and Kelce did not look like Kelce, but they still pulled it out.
For the Packers, things are amazing in Wisconsin. They are riding a seven-game win streak, just beat the undefeated Cardinals without Davante Adams and have a great defense, but this week adversity hit them.
Losing Rodgers to COVID-19 is enormous for this team. He is the glue that keeps this squad together. It will be interesting to see how Jordan Love steps up in for his first start as a Packer, making this game extremely interesting. Fans have not seen much of Love, and being Rodgers’s apprentice, he must have improved since his collegiate days.

Chiefs Preview: Keep the streak alive
This week, the Kansas City Chiefs need a big win, and Rodgers being out really helps their chances. To accomplish that, Patrick Mahomes has to do a better job of taking care of the football. The former MVP has had an interception in seven straight games, making this the worst stretch of football in his career.
There are some positives to draw from this team. Tyreek Hill has been dynamic and the Chief’s primary option on offense. Last week vs the Giants, he garnered 18 targets hauling in 12 of them for 94 yards and a touchdown, not to mention four of them moved the chains.
Packers Preview: Love is in the air
Love is going to have to be good this week and try to play mistake-free football. Love had a shot at playing about a quarter week 1 vs the Saints and looked great in his limited action. The second-year quarterback went 5-7 for 68 yards and a 102.1 quarterback rating. Honestly not bad at all, especially against a defense like the saints. The Packers will have to see similar production to that.
The Packer’s secondary has to be mentioned too. A lot of guys have stepped up, and this secondary looks to have come together nicely. Last week they held arguably one of the most explosive offenses to a below-average game. So far this season, they have allowed a quarterback rating of only 89.8 to the opposition and 6.9 YPA (t7th). They will need to carry that over into this game.
Odds & Free Betting Analysis for This NFL Game
Usually, I am big on taking Kansas City, but my confidence has wavered a bit. I still think they will win, but I don’t see them covering the 7.5 point margin. Green Bay is a gritty team and even without Rodgers has a solid run game to fall back on. As long as Love plays decent, I like the Packers in this one on the spread.
Moneyline the Cheifs are probably your best bet, all things considered.
