NFL Week 15: Green Bay Packers at Kansas City Chiefs

Aaron Rodgers Quarterback
Green Bay Signal Caller

Can anyone stop the Packers? Green Bay enters its final road game of the season on a 19-game winning streak and can become the first defending Super Bowl champion – and third team ever – to start a season with 14 straight wins.

Kansas City, meanwhile, plays its first game since firing head coach Todd Haley. One season after they won the division title, the Chiefs got rid of their coach in a season in which he lost his best defensive player, his best offensive player and QB Matt Cassel.

Chiefs interim coach Romeo Crennel benched Tyler Palko to go with Kyle Orton, who is playing with a badly dislocated right index finger. If Orton struggles throwing, Crennel might use Ricky Stanzi, a rookie. Orton was claimed off waivers Nov. 23 after securing his release from the Broncos, for whom he started five games before giving way to Tim Tebow. Orton threw one pass for the Chiefs two weeks ago but injured the index finger on his passing hand, a problem that could still prevent him from playing in Week 15. Orton started earlier this year against Green Bay and had three TDs but also three picks as Denver was blown out.

The Packers will finish the regular season without No. 1 WR Greg Jennings. The former WMU star, who has a team-best 67 receptions for 949 yards and nine touchdowns, sprained his left knee in the third quarter last week and is expect to miss two to three weeks. Coach Mike McCarthy said the Pro Bowl receiver is likely to return for Green Bay’s divisional playoff game the weekend of Jan. 14-15.

While the loss of Aaron Rodgers’ favorite target is obviously a bit of an obstacle, Green Bay — which leads the league in scoring average (35.8) and has already set a franchise record with 466 points — has plenty of other offensive options. Few teams do a better job of using all available weapons in the passing game than the Packers. Rodgers is excellent at reading coverages and will take what the defense gives, forcing all of his receivers to stay ready on every play. Rodgers is quick to go through his progressions, and the second or third option has as much of a chance to end up with the ball as the primary target.

Sportsbook Advisor likes K.C. to cover the two touchdown spread.
