The Monday night football schedule for Week 3 picks up with the Green Bay Packers and Kansas City Chiefs and the MNF matchup is live from Lambeau Field. The game is on TV from ESPN and has a live stream online from the WatchESPN website at 8:30 pm ET as the Pack host KC for the final game of the week with Aaron Rodgers and Alex Smith.
The Packers come into the game at 2-0 and they are playing their second primetime game in a row after winning over the Seahawks last weekend. The Packers are a bit banged up, but they have Eddie Lacy and Davante Adams looking to play and that could give a big boost for Aaron Rodgers. The Chiefs are 1-1 on the season and they come in looking to get a big road win at Lambeau.
The Packers have Rodgers coming in playing at a high level and that is no surprise, as he has not thrown an interception at home in over two seasons. Rodgers lost Jordy Nelson in the preseason to an ACL injury, but players like Randall Cobb, James Jones and Adams have stepped up in his absence. The Packers saw Eddie Lacy get injured last week, but the team is confident that even if he is limited or out, they have James Starks able to step in. Starks had nearly 100 yards last week and he could split carries with Lacy if he is able to go.
The Chiefs come into the game after blowing a win against the Broncos on Thursday night football in Week 2 and they will be looking to get to 2-1 on the season if they can get the victory. The team won over the Texans in Week 1 and coming up they have another tough game with the Bengals on the road next week. The Chiefs are still looking for that elusive WR touchdown and that could come this week for someone like Jeremy Maclin if he can find some space in the secondary.
The Chiefs had the Broncos number last week, but a costly fumble allowed Denver to get the win and now the team is looking to bounce back. It will not be an easy task for the Chiefs, as the Packers have won 10 games straight at home and that includes playoff games. The Packers have dealt with injuries this season, but so far they have been able to get past them without any major issues. The team now will try to take care of business at home once again.
