Week 13: Packers vs. Chiefs

On paper, most Packers fans probably think this is loss waiting to happen. But in case you haven't been paying attention, the Kansas City Chiefs are not world-beaters anymore.

KC's offense has stalled in recent weeks. Over their past three games, the Chiefs have scored just 47 points. Only twice all season has Patrick Mahomes and Kansas City put up over 30 points. This is a winnable game for the Packers.

But it's not going to be easy. The Packers defense will need to have a Herculean effort in order to pull off the upset, and while the game will be closer than some think, it's hard to pick the Packers to snag a win against the defending Super Bowl Champions.

Prediction: Chiefs 24, Packers 21 (4-8)

Week 14: Packers at NY Giants

The cure to any struggling team is a trip to the Meadowlands - whether it's the Jets or the Giants, who cares? All kidding aside, the New York Giants are a bad football team, and this game has all the makings of a nice bounce-back victory following back-to-back losses.

The Giants can't score. As good as Saquon Barkley is, Tommy DeVito under center doesn't invoke much confidence. The Packers defense should just stack eight in the box and make DeVito beat them.

Green Bay's offense, on the other hand, has looked better and better in recent weeks. While the short-week prep for Detroit followed by a visit from a two-time MVP may see the Packers drop back-to-back games, look for Jordan Love to get his team back on track in Week 14 at the Giants.

Prediction: Packers 35, Giants 20 (5-8)
