08:04 AM ET 12.19 | Did the Chiefs construct a blueprint for shutting down Aaron Rodgers and the Packers? What remains in Green Bay are questions -- questions seemingly solved a long time ago. Is Rodgers still invincible? Have the receivers' drops reached plague status? ... The temporary absence of Greg Jennings (knee) probably hurts more than the team realized. At halftime, Rodgers was 6 of 17 for 59 yards. His receivers had six drops. The Chiefs had life. After his fourth drop of the half -- a difficult hanger deep right -- tight end Jermichael Finley threw his helmet across the bench in disgust. Compare this to last season. The Packers were just tapping into their Texas oil-rich offense.

Dropping over a third of the attempts is just hideous, but bad games happen to even the best teams. The Packers seem stable and grounded enough to shake it off and get back to business.

Still, 13-1. MVP quarterback. Underrated at home and I got my Packers stock! Nothing to worry about.

The drops arent even what really hurt them that much... The two very generous offensive interferance calls on Jordy Nelson hurt more, so did McCarthy's no-challenge no the TD-that-was-a-fumble, and Rodgers reverted back to the Rodgers of 3 years ago who held on to the ball way to much. The only drops that hurt them were Jermichael Finley, who hasnt been able to catch a cold this season and needs to sit the bench for a game.
