I can't believe I'm typing this. The 2011 Kansas City Chiefs have beaten the 2011 Green Bay Packers, 19-7. KC has ended the Packers 19-game winning streak.

Only one word for this game: Shocking.

Even though he didn't pass for a touchdown, the star of this game on offense was QB Kyle Orton. The former Denver Bronco was 23/31 for 299 yards. The offense was completely different with Orton at the helm. I see no reason why he should not be the starter in 2012.

Tamba Hali also had a decent game - three sacks. He was pressuring Aaron Rodgers all day long.

So much to talk about. Congrats to new head coach Romeo Crennel. You're already better than Todd Haley.

Quick reactions to the Chiefs' sixth win and the Packers' first loss?
