The Green Bay Packers topped a depleted Kansas City Chiefs squad 31-24 Sunday night at Arrowhead Stadium.
The Packers, meanwhile, improved to 7-1 and expanded their winning streak to four games. Every win is crucial for Green Bay, too, as the 6-2 Minnesota Vikings continue to surge in the NFC North.
The Chiefs were without quarterback and reigning league MVP Patrick Mahomes while defensive end Frank Clark, defensive lineman Chris Jones, offensive lineman Eric Fisher, offensive lineman Andrew Wylie, offensive lineman Greg Senat and cornerback Kendall Fuller were all also inactive.
However, the 5-3 Chiefs remain atop the AFC West as the other three teams in the division will leave Week 8 below .
