The Green Bay Packers had a defense that allowed some yards but found a way to create turnovers and keep opponents out of the end zone. Unfortunately, this Packers defense will be remembered for the breakdown in overtime against Arizona, in the NFC Divisional playoff round. That breakdown led to a first and goal and eventual touchdown by Larry Fitzgerald.
Statistically, the Packers finished 15th in total yards and 12th in points allowed. Julius Peppers found enough gas to have another productive year leading the Packers with 10.5 sacks. As a unit, the Packers tied for seventh in sacks with 43. Clay Matthews was asked to man the middle of the defensive, and still produced 6.5 sacks. Middle linebacker became and issue once again when Sam Barrington went down with injury. Jake Ryan, a fourth round pick, worked his way into the starting lineup.

The Kansas City Chiefs visit Lambeau Field next Monday. The Chiefs lead the overall series 7-3-1 and have never lost at Lambeau Field (3-0). Brett Favre and Trent Green were the quarterbacks, the last time the Chiefs visited Green Bay. Now Aaron Rodgers and Alex Smith will battle. Smith was the first overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft, while Aaron Rodgers fell to Green Bay with the 24th pick. Some scouts thought Rodgers was going to be the first pick, and he has played with a chip on his shoulder ever since. Rodgers has been the NFL's MVP twice, and has won a Super Bowl. Things didn't work out in San Francisco for Alex Smith and he was traded to the Kansas City Chiefs before the 2013 season.
The Packers are coming off an emotional win over the Seattle Seahawks. The Chiefs dropped their last game to the Denver Broncos. Green Bay will be battling numerous injuries going into the game. Eddie Lacy left Sunday's game early in the first quarter with an ankle injury. Bryan Bu had knee surgery and will not play, while DeVante Adams did not practice today. The Packers had hopes of a high powered offense, but injuries have change the dimensions. James Starks played well after Lacy went down. The Packers can not afford another injury at wide receiver, even though rookie Ty Montgomery contribued against the Seahawks and James Jones is catching touchdowns (three in two games). The offensive line will be tested against a fierce Chiefs front seven. Tamba Hali and Justin Houston could be two of the best outside linebackers in the NFL. David Bakhtiari and Don Barclay will have their hands full protecting Aaron Rodgers.
On defense, the Packers held Marshawn Lynch in check and now they face another good back in Jamaal Charles. The key to success was disrupting the seahawks run game, which will be necessary against the Chiefs.
