Packers win the turnover differential

Believe it or not, the Packers have protected the football far better than the Chiefs this season. Kansas City's offense has turned it over 19 times, eighth-most in the NFL. That includes nine interceptions for Patrick Mahomes.

Green Bay has turned it over 12 times, which is the 10th-fewest. Jordan Love has 10 interceptions, but the Packers have an NFL-low two fumbles.

In fact, Mahomes has turned the ball over 11 times (nine interceptions and two lost fumbles) compared to Love's 10 (all interceptions) this season.

Mahomes is clearly the best quarterback in the NFL, and it isn't close, but even he can't overcome everything. The Chiefs' offense hasn't been consistent this season, and they are prone to turnovers.

The Packers need to make the most of their opportunities like they did against the Lions last week. If Mahomes throws a rare bad pass or one gets tipped in the air, they must make it count. The same goes for fumbles. If the ball is out, the Packers must win it and take advantage.

Green Bay has to steal a possession or two to have a chance to win this game. Kansas City has turned the ball over plenty of times this season. The Packers need that trend to continue on Sunday.
