Final: Packers 33 - Chiefs 22

Oh man. There were six (or was it seven?) lead changes in this game. The last few minutes were the key: a 60-yard touchdown pass from Brett Favre to Greg Jennings, and a 29-yard punt return by Charles Woodson to set up a field goal that put the Pack ahead by 4 with a little more than a minute to go. Having forced KC to use all their timeouts, KC was in a hurry-up offense. On third-and-two, Charles Woodson intercepted a Damon Huard pass and returned it 46 yards for a TD, putting the Pack ahead by 11. Stick a fork in it. Done!

Brett finally gets a win against KC. Like Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, he's also beat every team in the league. He was 24 of 34, for 360 yards, with 2 TDs and 2 INTs.

The defense played very well in the first half, but allowed KC back in in the second half, before finally closing things down. The Packers offense did what it needed to do.

There are lots of details in this closing quarter which are probably best left to the paid journalists to convey (including a recap of numerous penalties). As for us, all we need to know is the Packers are 7-1. And the ViQueens come to Lambeau next Sunday.

It's great to be a Packers fan!
