National Football League(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) — The Green Bay Packers (13-1) run at perfection is over.  The Packers came into Arrowhead Stadium on a 19-game winning streak dating back to last season.  When they left, it was on a one-game losing streak after the Chiefs (6-8) did the impossible and handed Green Bay a 19-14 loss.

The win comes in interim head coach Romeo Crennel’s first game after Todd Haley was let go last week. 

“They decided that they were going to play very hard and they were not going to come here and give up,” said Crennel.  “They have some fight left in them and they aren’t going to give up and we’re going to try and finish this season strong.”

For the Packers it’s back to the drawing board after their offense struggled to put up points all game long.

“I personally always viewed the undefeated season as, really, just gravy,” Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said.  “The goal was to get home-field advantage and win the Super Bowl. That’s what we discussed.”

They’ll look to start a new winning streak on Christmas Day against the Chicago Bears.
