Man, who wouldn't have loved to have put money on this pick this week? After firing their head coach and having to play the league's undefeated defending Super Bowl champions, no one really gave the Chiefs a chance to pick up the W. But that's why they play the game. Even more surprising is that KC won despite only reaching the end zone once. That's just a testament to their defense, which sacked Aaron Rodgers four times and held the Packers to their lowest point total of the season. With this victory, the Chiefs not only preserved a shot at finishing the season at .500 but also gained some respect in the process. —Ralph Warner
