Jordan Love met the Kansas City Chiefs two years ago. That game ended in a 13-7 loss for him. He now faced them again with the Green Bay Packers to ensure his side won the event, no matter the margin. For reference, the Packers accumulated 27 points against 19 for the Chiefs, extending their victory for the third time.
Matt LaFleur, the coach of the Packers, said that the team is now starting to come together. Matt added that the team is playing faster and with more confidence.
Matt has been credited with improving the December performance of the team by 16-0. They are behind the San Diego Chargers, a side with 18-0 wins in 2006–2009. Love has acknowledged this along with his performance. He interacted with the media and said that he had this game circled, and it was huge to see them again and win the game. Jordan teamed up with Christian Watson for 2 of his 3 TD passes.
A win was inevitable from the moment the game started. While the margin was thick in the first half, the gap began to fill up in the second half, opening up the possibility of tables turning at any moment. As a matter of fact, they came close to equalizing the 7-point tally but missed it by a single score.
Jordan Love ended the game with 267 yards for 25/36 and 3 TDs. Watson bagged two TDs, while Ben Sims brought up a single point.
Patrick Mahomes led the Packers with 210 yards, 1 touchdown, and 1 interception. His other stats are 21/33. Not a lot of TDs were landed by the Chiefs, as Noah and Isiah managed to score one each.
Based on Canadian gaming news, Andy Reid, the coach of the Chiefs, appreciated the Packers by saying that they did a great job, adding that they will now have to be able to start faster on both sides of the ball. The statement comes as the team sees a number of injuries affecting the playing squad.
Drue Tranquill left the field in the first quarter after he suffered a concussion. Jerick McKinnon stayed out of the field due to a groin injury.
However, the Packers are in the same box, with Aaron Jones and Josiah Deguara being out of the game due to a knee injury and a hip injury, respectively. Later in Q4, Watson sustained an injury while running for his first touchdown.
The Chiefs have a record of 8-4. They will next meet the Bills and the Patriots before locking horns with the Raiders.
The Green Bay Packers are taking with them the record of 6-6 to face the Giants and the Buccaneers in upcoming games. They will then play the Panthers ahead of Christmas. The closest game fans can look forward to is between the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Cincinnati Bengals.
