The Green Bay Packers play at home for the second straight week when they host the 1-1 Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football.

With the Packers nearly a touchdown favorite in this one, there are some out there who feel the Packers may be prime for an upset in this weekend’s tilt.

Could this be possible?

Are these guys thinking MVP Aaron Rodgers and the Packers could fall to the Andy Reid-led Chiefs?

In my mind, I can absolutely see where the upset chanters are getting their arguments – the Chiefs have the defense that matches up well against the Packers, whose receiving corps is a bit banged up, as well as the offensive line.

And as for the Packers’ defense?

Well, they haven’t exactly lit up the world in their first two wins – the first coming against the hapless Bears and the second against the Seahawks, whose own offense seemed a bit out of sync last Sunday.

Add in the fact that the Kansas City Chiefs have NEVER lost at Lambeau Field in the regular season …

Yes, you read that correctly – the Chiefs are undefeated at Lambeau.

However, with all that said, the pundits have also got to give the Packers the overall edge because of one person – Aaron Rodgers.

His record at Lambeau Field and the fact that he hasn’t thrown an interception at home in a bazillion attempts is probably enough to give the Packers what they need to win on Sunday.

Though Eddie Lacy‘s ankle is suspect, the Packers proved that with James Starks, they can win.

With right tackle Bryan Bulaga out for a few more weeks and Don Barclay playing in his stead, this game might come down to proper protection for #12.

So, let’s jump a page ahead now and look at a video that proclaims the Packers as suspect in this weekend’s game against the Chiefs … check it out …
