The Green Bay Packers are in Kansas City, MO, today, taking on the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. The Packers are 13-0. The Chiefs are 5-8. This should be fun.

Today is Romeo Crennel's first game as the Kansas City Chiefs head coach. Crennel took over for Todd Haley, who was fired earlier this week.

The biggest news pre-game is that Kyle Orton will start the game. Ricky Stanzi is the only other active quarterback. Yes, that means no Tyler Palko!

This is the first open thread of the game. Here's some more info on today's matchup:
