Green Bay Packers vs Kansas City Chiefs will take place on Thursday night in an NFL Preseason 2013 game in Week 4. Both teams have had relatively disappointing preseasons so far, and they will know time is running out to get things right. The game will start at 8 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
The Chiefs finally got things right last week, claiming their first win of the preseason against Pittsburgh. They fought hard for their win and managed to hold on for a 26-20 victory, which gives them something to build upon as they look towards their season opener on the road to Jacksonville on Sept. 8.
Things could have been very different for the Chiefs; both of their opening games were lost by very small margins and had they come out on the right side of those results they would be feeling very confident with a record of 3-0 coming into this game.
However, football is a game that can be won and lost on small margins, and the Chiefs were forced to learn the hard way, losing 13-17 to New Orleans, and 13-15 to the San Francisco 49ers.
Their opposition today are also suffering a crisis of confidence; over three games the Green Bay Packers have scored just 29 points – that's less than 10 points a game. If they continue in that form through the regular season this will be a long and painful season for Packers' fans.
An opening preseason loss to Arizona saw the Packers draw a blank in a 0-17 loss. They followed that up with a good win at St Louis where they won 19-7. Last week they returned to losing ways though, and lost to Seattle in front of their home fans 10-17. The Packers need to find consistency and play with more freedom, ahead of their season opener on the road to San Francisco.
