It’s Week 9, which means the Kansas City Chiefs will host the Green Bay Packers on Sunday afternoon in one of the single most-anticipated games of the 2021 NFL season. The downside here is that Aaron Rodgers will not be available to play due to being on the Packers’ COVID reserve list. However, the Packers have won 7 games in a row and are in prime position for a top seed in the NFC, so they’ll be plenty motivated to get the job done and maintain their position in a tough conference while on the road against Patrick Mahomes and company. Let’s take a look at the particulars of Chiefs vs. Packers.
Chiefs Injury Report vs Green Bay Packers Week 9
The Chiefs are coming into Week 9 relatively healthy with only Mike Remmers missing practice this week of all their active players. That’s good news as the team can expect better performances from defenders like Frank Clark, Chris Jones, and Charvarius Ward who have been limited in practice lately. The Chiefs should also be deeper at linebacker than ever with the return of Anthony Hitchens. As for Remmers, he’ll watch while Lucas Niang starts again outside at right tackle.
Kevin King injury update
The Packers are ailing in the secondary without their top cornerback Jaire Alexander, one of the NFL’s elite pass defenders, along with Isaac Yiadom. The good news is that Kevin King might be available to play on Sunday after practicing this week. King hasn’t played since Week 5, but his presence would help provide both depth and security at the position against Patrick Mahomes and company. Watch for his status pre-game.
Chiefs vs Packers Odds, Spread, Over/Under & Betting Pick Week 9
WynnBET’s Week 9 NFL odds have the Chiefs favored by 7 points in the wake of the announcement that Aaron Rodgers will not be playing. What’s interesting here is that no one has any idea what to expect from Jordan Love. That said, the Chiefs’ defense has made quarterbacks look very good over the last eight weeks. Even Jalen Hurts of the Philadelphia Eagles looked like a Pro Bowler in a loss. Justin Herbert also made his debut last year against the Chiefs unexpectedly and looked like the real deal. Expect Love to put up solid numbers here and make things interesting. Take the points, because even if K.C. wins, it will still be close.
