Packers vs. Chiefs Game Predictions from CheeseheadTV.com

GAME PREDICTIONS Week 3: Green Bay Packers vs. Kansas City Chiefs
Name Record To-Date This Week's Pick Score Prediction
Aaron Nagler 2-0 Green Bay Packers 27-24
Even without Bryan Bulaga, the Packers will be able to move the ball. A fully healthy Aaron Rodgers and his ability to manipulate the snap count in the friendly confines of Lambeau Field will be the difference in this game. This will be a close one, but the Packers should win. 
 
Adam Czech 2-0 Green Bay Packers 26-19
The Chiefs hang around in this one thanks to all the Packers injuries and Kansas City's formidable pass rush. But in the end, Aaron Rodgers is too much to handle at home and the Packers improve to 3-0.
 
Jersey Al Bracco 2-0 Green Bay Packers 20-13
This will not be your typical high-flying offensive showcase at Lambeau Field. The Chiefs' agressive defense will keep the scoring down, but offenively, they don't have much after Jamal Charles, who you can be sure the Packers will be keying on.
 
Alex Tallitsch  2-0 Green Bay Packers 27-26
In a game that isn't for the weak of heart, the Packers get a late win on a 4th quarter field goal from Mason Crosby. 
 
Andrew Garda 2-0 Green Bay Packers 24-10
The Packers should be a little concerned about Bryan Bulaga being down, especially with a solid Chiefs pass rush, but it shouldn't really slow them down offensively. And aside from Jamaal Charles, offensively this Chiefs team has very little going on. At the end of the day, they just can't hang with a team like Green  Bay.
 
Corey Behnke 2-0 Green Bay Packers 50-0
Packers roll.
 
Cory Jennerjohn 2-0 Green Bay Packers 31-20
These teams have always had close games and the Chiefs are coming in mad after a huge letdown loss to the Denver Broncos.  I expect a physical game with the guys in the trenches earning their paychecks this week.  Although the Packers have never beaten the Chiefs at Lambeau Field, this is a  Monday Night game and the Packers just don't lose at home lately.  The Pack wins a low-scoring and hard-fought game to improve to 3-0.
 
Jason Perone 2-0 Green Bay Packers 23-17

Jay Hodgson 2-0 Green Bay Packers 22-20
 The Packers' defense continues to improve while the offense still searches for an aerial attack in life after Jordy Nelson
 
Jayme Snowden 2-0 Green Bay Packers 27-22
Not an easy win; the Packers defense will have to repeat their strong performance to stop Jamal Charles and the Packers offense will have to utilize their tight ends more with more key players banged up.
 
Jeff Albrecht 2-0 Green Bay Packers 27-20
The Packers will enjoy home cooking for yet another week but have a tough AFC opponent in the Chiefs.  They have a terrific defense and their edge rushers will surely give our tackles a challenge.  The difference here is Aaron Rodgers who will elude the rush and find the open man.  The keys are stopping the KC rushing attack and establishing Eddie Lacy, who is expected to play, early.
 
Mike Reuter 2-0 Kansas City Chiefs 27-24
"I'm assuming Burnett is going to miss this game or be severally limited. He's too important to this defense with the way KC runs their offense. In combination with Bulaga being out with how aggressive KC's defense is, I think the Packers lose.
 
Robert Olson 2-0 Green Bay Packers 27-17
It’s a primetime game at Lambeau Field, so I expect the Packers’ defense to play with a lot of energy again. The Chiefs’ defense will put up resistance and give David Bakhtiari and Don Barclay some trouble, but, ultimately, Aaron Rodgers will outperform Alex Smith. .
 
Thomas Hobbes 2-0 Green Bay Packers 24-17
Make no mistake, the Chiefs are a good football team but nothing really scares me about them.  Even if the Packers can't manage to stop Charles they have more than enough firepower in the passing game to make the Chiefs abandon the run. 
 
Wisconsin Rob (Strupp) 2-0 Kansas City Chiefs 21-17
The things we were worried about last week (edge rushers vs Barclay, Excellent TE vs ILBs, run game vs front 7) are true this week as well. Chiefs O knows how to use Kelcie better, and maybe a little bit of a letdown and a trap game for the Packers.
 
Zach Kruse 2-0 Green Bay Packers 30-20
Aaron Rodgers. Lambeau Field. Primetime. That's really all you need to know

Real nervous about this game. They win this one, I think they go into their bye 8-0. :)

Bearmeat - the best the Packers can do is 6-0 for their bye. The bye follows week six. Thanks, Since '61

Well Since, to support Bearmeat, I'll say Packers are already 3-0, and after KC game Packers will be 5-0... So, they will be 8-0 at bye week ;-)

If the Packers defense can get off the field and/or the Packers build an early lead and take Jamaal Charles out of the game the Pack takes over this game. I like the Pack 34 - 14. Thanks, Since '61

I think you hit the nail on the head: no long drives for the Chefs. The way Charles plays and how they use him, he's never out of the game it seems. Packers need to establish enough of a run game (FWIW, I think the Chiefs are a little more stout than the Seahawks) and perhaps make use of WR/RB screen plays to keep the KC pass rush thinking.

I think the Packers win...28-17.

Other than the one example I think the pickers aren't considering how well the Packers have played at home the past year.

And why does the silly stat of never having beat the Chiefs in Lambeau matter at all? Does the 2003 overtime loss really have bearing here? Or that 1989 loss?

MM; time to make sure to figure out:
1) stop a dynamic running game (JCharles)
2) Stop screens and dump-off passes to RB
3) stop dynamic TE (Kelce)

GBP d didn't quite do it enough V Chigo. They did pretty well v Seattle. If they refine it v KC, then they will have figured out how to send Minne back to playbook kindergarten. Minne is rocking, and a showdown is coming. This KC game is really good for GBP early in the season to get this D tight.
