PFW executive editor and resident Packers expert Dan Arkush offers his prediction for the Week 15 showdown vs. the Chiefs in Kansas City.

I like Romeo Crennel a lot and think the Chiefs could do a lot worse than hiring him as the team's next full-time head coach. And I've always been a Kyle Orton fan. But, as was the case with the Raiders last week, the Chiefs are a very flat team at the moment, going nowhere fast. Their ground game is a shell of what it was last season, and I think Jermichael Finley could go wild today, matched up against Kansas City's extremely suspect safety corps.

I think the Packers' offense will continue to operate on all cylinders without Greg Jennings, and I see another strong effort from Ryan Grant (80 yards rushing and a TD or two). Looks like a relatively easy win to me, with right about a three-TD point differential in the outcome.   

Prediction: Packers 36, Chiefs 14
