An Aaron Rodgers-less Green Bay Packers team fell to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 9, losing the game 13-7. The game was dominated by defense on both sides, which was in part due to two offenses that simply could not get much of anything going.

Despite it being a loss, it was a close game pretty much all the way through. The Chiefs held the Packers scoreless for the first three quarters, but only managed to score one touchdown and two field goals up to that point.

The Pack still had some players that played good, mainly on the defensive side. Let’s take a look at the three best players from the Week 9 loss.

Special teams: P Corey Bojorquez

Although Corey Bojorquez’s performance this week is nothing to get excited about due to the loss, he still deserves credit for pinning the Chiefs deep at times.

Bojorquez punted four times for a total of 217 yards, averaging 54.3 yards per punt. His longest punt of the day went 63 yards as well.

Defense: Edge Rashan Gary

Rashan Gary does it again.

By my first review, Gary had five QB pressures and turned one of those into a sack. This marks the third straight game that Gary has had at least three pressures by my count. He’s truly turning into an elite pass rusher right before our very eyes.

Nearly every player on the Packers defense played well, but Gary was the one “standout” of the group.

Offense: N/A

Remember a few weeks ago in the Cincinnati Bengals game where nobody was awarded the special teams nod? I have a similar feeling about this week’s offense.

The usual suspects, Davante Adams and Aaron Jones, had run-of-the-mill days. Jordan Love was overwhelmed and didn’t play good football until the fourth quarter. If anybody deserved the award, it would be AJ Dillon – but his good play came very early on in the game.

If this is what the offense is going to look like in an Aaron Rodgers-less world, well, I’m not ready to accept that just yet.
