The Sports Kings: Is Crennel The Answer?
The Green Bay Packers suffered their first loss of the season at the hands of Kansas City Chiefs.
Jackie Battle put the game out of reach with a one-yard touchdown run with under five minutes to play as the Kansas City Chiefs upset the Packers, 19-14, at Arrowhead Stadium.
Ryan Succop added four field goals for Kansas City, which has won two-of-three on the heels of a four-game slide to improve to 6-and-8 on the season.
Kyle Orton finished 23-of-31 for 299 yards to get the win in his first start of the season with his new team.
The Chiefs acquired Orton off waivers three weeks ago.
Aaron Rodgers had a rushing score and also completed 17 passes for 235 yards with a TD toss to Donald Driver for Green Bay, which had won 19 straight games dating back to last season. Ryan Grant added 66 yards via the ground for the Pack, who fall to 13-and-1.
After the game Chiefs’ interim head coach Romero Crennel says his players deserved this win.
