Arrowhead Stadium will be the sight of what looked like one of the best games in Week 8. It still might be a good one but the road Packers have taken a distinct advantage with Patrick Mahomes set to miss his first start since being named the Chiefs’ starting quarterback at the start of last season.
Green Bay Packers
Green Bay joined the Patriots (who play on Monday Night Football in Week 7), 49ers, and Saints with six wins after trouncing the Raiders on Sunday, 42–24.
Aaron Rodgers had his best game under Head Coach Matt LaFleur, throwing five touchdown passes and running for another. He averaged over 13 yards per pass attempt and threw for a total of 429. All five of his touchdown tosses went to a different receiver.
The great game came on a day he was without his best receiver, Davante Adams, who continues to battle a turf toe injury. Adams’ status for this one is unknown but that injury is serious.
But the Packers have played five of their seven games from the friendly confines of Lambeau Field, which means the road is coming. Four of their next five will be away from home, starting in Week 8.
Green Bay goes at Kansas City, at LA Chargers, vs. Carolina, bye, at San Francisco, and at NY Jets over the next six weeks.
Kansas City Chiefs
Of course, the Packers caught a huge break when Patrick Mahomes dislocated his knee on a quarterback sneak Thursday night in Denver.
Apparently, the injury could have been worse but Mahomes will miss multiple weeks. For now, that’s all that I feel safe saying. He shouldn’t miss the rest of the season but he’ll definitely sit this one out.
Backup quarterback Matt Moore stepped in at Mile High and went 10/19, throwing for 117 yards and touchdown with a big lead that Mahomes built.
Moore arrived from Miami, where he had been playing since 2011, primarily as the backup. The 35-year-old has a 15-15 record as a starting quarterback in the league but he won’t give the Chiefs near the look they have with Mahomes under center.
But if you read my Chiefs write-up last week, you’ll see I called on KC’s defense to win a game with Mahomes hobbled (he was nursing an ankle injury before the knee injury).
The defense did just that, holding Denver to six points with way too much speed for Joe Flacco to handle. Rodgers isn’t Flacco slow but he’s lost some mobility over the past few seasons. At home, the Chiefs defense could do it again.
NFL Betting Trends:
- Over is 19-7 in GB last 26 road games.
- Over is 12-3-1 in KC last 16 games as an underdog.
- KC are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 home games.
- Under is 51-25-1 in KC last 77 home games.
4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: it stays under.
For the second consecutive week, I’m playing a Chiefs under. Moore will be nothing more than a game-manager under center, which means this game again falls on the improved Chiefs’ defense.
Sure, the Packers looked great at home against the Raiders. Before Week 7 they hadn’t looked so good. With Adams still dinged up and the receivers unproven against a secondary other than Oakland’s, Green Bay comes back down to Earth in Week 8.
