150928-q1-in-game-updates-650GREEN BAY — The Packers were playing at peak performance on both sides of the ball and held a 14-0 lead over the Kansas City Chiefs following one quarter of play at Lambeau Field on Monday night.

The Chiefs won the toss and deferred their choice. Following an exchange of three-and-out possessions, the Packers began a drive at their 31-yard line, but without wide receiver Davante Adams, who reinjured his ankle attempting to catch a pass in the first series of the game. His return was announced as questionable.

After crossing midfield, Aaron Rodgers completed a pass to James Jones for 12 yards. On the next play, Rodgers shoveled a pass to Eddie Lacy and Lacy rumbled for 26 yards to the Chiefs’ 8-yard line.

The Packers scored on the next play, on a pass from Rodgers to rookie wide receiver Ty Montgomery. The Packers led, 7-0, with 9:44 to play in the first quarter.

Kansas City responded with a 54-yard kickoff return by Knile Davis, but from the Packers 48 the Chiefs lost three yards in three plays and were forced to punt.

From their 11, the Packers began a drive that included a third-down conversion when Rodgers caught the Chiefs with 12 men on the field. After crossing midfield, a screen pass to James Starks gained 19 yards to the Chiefs 30.

The Packers continued to poke holes in the Chiefs’ front, and Alonzo Harris ran for 16 yards to the 8. Rodgers carried to the 3. On the next play, Rodgers threw to Randall Cobb for a touchdown, 14-0.
