But let's put this into perspective. The Chiefs' schemes worked well in noisy Arrowhead, where, as Favre said, "They knew the count before we did." At Lambeau Field it's a different story. K.C.'s personnel matched up well against Green Bay too—a terrific secondary against injured receivers, outside speed rushers against a rookie left tackle, and a fine interior line threesome (Dave Szott, Will Shields and Tim Grunhard) against a D-line that was sluggish in getting off the blocks.
"Is this a desperate time for the Packers?" someone asked Jones afterward, and the big defensive end stared at him. "We're still 8-2, aren't we?" Jones said.
