Every week, his MVP quarterback dissects defenses in painstakingly methodical fashion.
"Aaron is a phenomenal player ... and playing great football," McCarthy said with a laugh. "I'll just keep saying it."
Charles rushed for three touchdowns for Kansas City (1-2), which followed its stunning, last-minute loss at home to Denver with a respectable fourth-quarter effort at raucous Lambeau Field.
Charles' 7-yard TD with 1:25 left got the Chiefs within 10. But the end result was the same for Kansas City, which lost its second straight.
Another masterful performance by Rodgers made for a difficult night for Reid's defense.
Rodgers, who finished 24 of 35, again burned a secondary on free-play situations following defensive penalties. The longest play came on a 52-yard catch in the fourth quarter by Jones following an offside penalty, setting up Cobb's third touchdown catch.
"His ability to really process information is as good as I've ever been around," McCarthy said about Rodgers.
They still got beat.
Despite the three touchdown runs, the Packers prevented Charles from making explosive plays, limiting him to 49 yards on 11 carries.
Up front, Green Bay controlled the line of scrimmage when it counted and got to Alex Smith for seven sacks.
"Forcing (them) to punt that first half was pretty boring, being on the sideline," linebacker Clay Matthews said. "But, hopefully, this is just an indication of where we're headed as a defense."
Smith finished 24 of 40 for 290 yards and a touchdown.
Rodgers and Cobb hooked up for another 4-yard scoring pass in the fourth. With the score, Rodgers set the franchise record with his fourth career game of at least five touchdown passes.
"That's a Hall of Fame quarterback, and we give him much respect," Johnson said. "It's not panic mode, but if we want to do good down the stretch, we're going to have to play a lot better against really good teams."
It was the first touchdown pass caught by a receiver since Donnie Avery had a 79-yard catch-and-run against the Indianapolis Colts in a wild card game on Jan. 4, 2014.
