Driver: It takes games like this to bring you back to reality.

The Green Bay Packers actually felt a little better after watching film of the 19-14 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. Both coach Mike McCarthy and receiver Donald Driver said there were plenty of opportunities, but mistakes and poor execution led to the worst offensive performance of the year. They credited the Chiefs, but gave the impression that the wounds suffered were self-inflicted. "You canít make those types of mistakes if you want to win games," Driver said. "We know that now. "It takes games like this to bring you back to reality." Driver, however, didn't think they team had relaxed with the run of 19 consecutive wins. He said they were well-prepared well and ready last week. "When we lose certain games, we seem to come back and bounce back and start playing well," Driver said.† "Our goal was to make sure that when itís all said and done we were going for the undefeated season. But, you know, 18-1 is not bad either. "Weíll take it for what itís worth. We already made our corrections and get ready for this week." The Packers haven't lost consecutive games since back-to-back road trips to Detroit and New England last December. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered a concussion in Detroit and didn't finish the game. He didn't play against the Patriots. The New England loss was the last before Sunday. Green Bay had back-to-back losses earlier in 2010 (Redskins, Dolphins) and answered with four straight victories. Driver was asked if it's a relief, in any way, to be done with the undefeated talk and can wholly concentrate on a Super Bowl? "I donít know," Driver said. "It would have been fun to go 19-0. It would have been a great thing to do. "Itís not going to happen. Now youíve got to let that go and move on forward to the next task at hand and thatís Chicago."
