Quarterback Aaron Rodgers had an off game with 17 of 35 from the field for 235 yards and a touchdown.

It was a bad defensive effort from Green Bay who allowed an inept Kansas City offense 438 yards.

These two NFC north squads when they first met this season it was the Packers with the 27-17 road win back in late September.
