The Kansas City Chiefs have had a rough week this week to say the least. Now they must face the single best team in all of football: the Green Bay Packers. After firing head coach Todd Haley, interim coach and defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel will lead the Chiefs against the Packers, who are visiting Arrowhead in an attempt to catch the Packers off-guard. The good news is that history is on the team's side.
According to the Chiefs main site, "The Chiefs own a 6-3-1 (.650) overall record (6-2-1 regular season and 0-1 postseason) in 10 previous meetings with the Packers. Kansas City is 3-2 (.600) at home against Green Bay. The Chiefs won fi ve straight games against the Packers from ’89-03, including posting a perfect 2-0 record at home. During that stretch, Kansas City was 3-0 at Lambeau Field. The Packers won 20-19 when the two clubs met in a preseason game earlier this year at Green Bay (9/1).
"Including preseason competition, the Chiefs and Packers have squared off at six different sites in the 23 previous meetings between the two teams (13 preseason, nine regular season and one postseason). In addition to Lambeau Field, Arrowhead Stadium and Milwaukee County Stadium, Kansas City and Green Bay met in Super Bowl I at the LA Coliseum and have competed in preseason play at the Tokyo Dome (8/1/98) and at Fawcett Stadium in Canton, Ohio (8/4/03). Green Bay posted a 33-22 win in its last visit to Kansas City (11/4/07) as QB Brett Favre threw for 360 yards and two touchdowns. The clubs also faced each other in Super Bowl I as the Packers won 35-10."
