APC Podcast, 10/29: Win over Chiefs is “a big boy victory”

Even without Patrick Mahomes, the Chiefs represented a really tough test for the Packers.

Before we fall too far down the “but no Patrick Mahomes” rabbit hole in examining the Green Bay Packers’ 31-24 win over the Kansas City Chiefs, it’s important to remember that Andy Reid once won 13 games with Alex Smith at quarterback. Add to that cocktail the fact that the Chiefs’ skill position players possess lightning speed and the fact that Kansas City boasts a real bonafide home field advantage, and you’ve got the makings of a really tough out.

Leave it to Andy Reid to scheme a game plan that simultaneously exposes a defensive weakness in Green Bay’s linebackers while also keeping their recently unretired backup quarterback comfortable and productive. Atta boys are due to do both Matt Moore and Andy Reid, but atta boys don’t count in the win column. Anyway you slice it, this was “a big boy victory” for the Packers, as Alex Petakas puts it in today’s episode of the APC Podcast.
