SALT LAKE CITY — In Week 14, Jamaal Williams continues to impress in his third week as a starter for Green Bay, and Alex Smith helped the Chiefs end a four-game losing steak with a win over Oakland.

Jamaal Williams (BYU):

Williams has given the Green Bay offense a breath of fresh air over the last three weeks. He has risen to the definitive starting role for the Packers, scoring five touchdowns in his last three starts.

Williams had 15 rushing attempts for 49 yards, along with one rushing touchdown. His stand out play came with nine minutes left in the first quarter for the first score of the game when quarterback Brett Huntley connected with a wide open Williams for a 30-yard passing touchdown. Williams finished the game with seven receptions for 69 yards and one touchdown.

Alex Smith (Utah):

The Kansas City Chiefs were on a four-game losing streak coming into Sunday's game against Oakland, winning one of their last seven after a strong start to the season.

Kansas City pulled off the victory over the Raiders Sunday in a 26-15 win, led by their veteran quarterback Alex Smith. The former Ute completed only 20-of-34 passes, which was one of his lowest passing percentages of the year. But he threw for 268 yards on the day without throwing a touchdown.

Kansas City can still claim the top spot in the playoffs and win their division. The Chiefs will host the Chargers next week, a team that has been on a four-game winning steak and still tied atop the division with the Chiefs.
