Packers trail Chiefs at halftime

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on August 29, 2013 – 8:35 pm

Green Bay Packers QB Vince Young

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.

    Boring first half. Was hoping to see more out of the running backs.

    Packers get beat both offensively & defensively. Young just turned ball over to Chiefs. Got it back with Int. This QB Bray looks like a young Rogers. What a rifle for a arm.
