KANSAS CITY–The Packers trail the Chiefs, 13-6, at halftime of Thursday’s preseason finale at Arrowhead Stadium.

The Chiefs began a drive, kind of, at their 45. It carried to the Packers 30. Ryan Succop converted a 48-yard field goal to give the Chiefs a 6-3 lead with 8:50 to play in the second quarter.

Vince Young, who re-entered the game at quarterback at the start of the second quarter, pitched a 24-yard completion to Ryan Taylor following the Succop field goal. On third down, Young completed a back-shoulder pass to Jeremy Ross to the Chiefs 29 for a gain of 26 yards. The drive stalled and Mason Crosby’s kick from 45 yards tied the score at 6-6.

Late in the quarter, the Chiefs took over at midfield. In a drive aided by a personal foul against Johnny Jolly, the Chiefs moved into the red zone with Tyler Bray at quarterback. On first and goal from the 8-yard line, Bray threw a touchdown pass in the front-right corner of the end zone to wide receiver Junior Hemingway and the Chiefs had a 13-6 lead.

Young was six of 15 for 77 yards and fourth-round draft choice Johnathan Franklin led the Packers in rushing with 21 yards on six carries.
