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.
