The Chiefs are solid road favorites over the Packers on Sunday Night Football in NFL Week 13 with the opportunity to wrestle control back of the No. 1 seed in the AFC.

Vibes are high in Kansas City after an impressive comeback win over the Raiders, but the organization must stay focused in order to beat a promising young Green Bay squad.

Here are three players that need more playing time to crush the Packers:

3 Chiefs Who MUST Get More Playing Time

1. Rashee Rice - WR

I mean, we all know this right?

Rice finally had his breakout performance in the Week 12 win, hauling in eight of 10 targets for 107 yards and a 39-yard TD. He's looked like Kansas City's best receiver for weeks, but this was the first time the offense truly leaned into the star rookie.

He's yet to eclipse 70% of the snaps, though he's come close in two of his last three games. I want the Chiefs to keep feeding Rice the ball, and I'm hoping he's on the field as much as possible.

Per Pro Football Focus, the Packers run zone coverage at a top 10 rate in the league. Rice now has 418 receiving yards against zone, generating 3.08 yards per route run.

He already looks like a rising star. As we enter a critical portion of the season with a chance to claim the AFC's No. 1 seed, Andy Reid needs to fully unleash Rasheesh.
