This is the toughest game on the schedule. The Packers are absolutely brutal to beat at Lambeau Field, not having done so since the 2013 NFC Wild Card game against the San Francisco 49ers. Even more incredibly, Aaron Rodgers has not thrown an interception there since Dec. 2012! Talk about one of the great underrated stats.

Beating the Packers anywhere will be tough. If Kansas City can somehow pull out a victory this week, it would be nothing short of spectacular. The Chiefs do have the recipe for beating Green Bay, though. With Justin Houston and Tamba Hali, they can pressure Rodgers and perhaps force the rare error.

Offensively, Kansas City can run behind Jamaal Charles and put forth a ball-control passing attack. If the Chiefs execute, the game will stay close with the offense keeping Green Bay off the field. Of course, that is much easier said than done against a team that should have been in the Super Bowl.
