The Packers got off to a fast start when, on the first play of the game, Chiefs quarterback Chase Daniel threw a pass into the waiting hands of cornerback Tramon Williams. From the Chiefs 35, the Packers gained only a few yards in three downs and Mason Crosby was quickly confronted by a 48-yard field goal attempt he sailed between the uprights without any difficulty.

The few first-string players that were in the starting lineup for the Packers were quickly gone by the Packers’ second possession of the game, and Young was replaced at quarterback by B.J. Coleman on just the Packers’ third possession of the game. Coleman was quickly intercepted by formers Packers linebacker Frank Zombo, who returned the interception to the Packers 14-yard line.

Daniel was sacked by Johnny Jolly on second down and by blitzing cornerback Micah Hyde on third down, leaving Ryan Succop to boot a 37-yard field goal that tied the game, 3-3.
