Week 14 Of NFL: Packers Win As Rodgers Shines, Chiefs Thrash Raiders And Bucs Outlast Bills

Prior to his Green Bay Packers’ meeting with the Chicago Bears this week, Aaron Rodgers indicated that he didn’t regret reminding everyone that he still owned them. His performance on the field on Sunday confirmed this, as he guided his side to a 45-30 victory, illustrating his point to the rest of the globe. Rodgers passed for four touchdowns and 341 yards in the game, completing 29 of 37 passes for 341 yards. As the Packers rallied from a 10-0 deficit early in the second quarter, Davante Adams had ten catches for 121 yards and two touchdowns of his own. Green Bay grabbed control of the game in the third quarter, scoring 17 points to create a dominating lead that they would not relinquish.

Speaking of commanding leads, that was what the Kansas City Chiefs put on the board against the Las Vegas Raiders. We had started to see signs of the ‘old’ Chiefs, but this might just have been the game that proved they are well and truly back as they throttled their division rivals 48-9 at home. The score is the biggest discrepancy in the history of the rivalry, such as the level of play the Chiefs put on display here. They made their intentions clear early on as Mike Hughes returned a fumble just 17 seconds in to hand them an early lead. They’d score 35 points unanswered until the Raiders finally got on the board late in the second quarter. Pat Mahomes finished with 258 yards on 20-24 passing and had two touchdowns. Running back Derrick Gore had a highlight-reel 51-yard run in the fourth as well. Elsewhere, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers nearly gave away a game to the Buffalo Bills only to take victory in overtime. Having led 27-10 with 11:20 to go, it looked likely the outcome was surely no longer in question. However, the Bills roared back as Josh Allen threw two TD passes to get them close and then engineered a 70-yard drive that culminated in a field goal to force the extra period. Allen, all in all, had 308 yards throwing and 109 rushings, and he also had three TD’s. Tom Brady had two touchdowns of his own and 363 passing yards in the unnecessarily close win.
