KC Chiefs 2Green Bay Wis. — The Green Bay Packers eased their way through the final game of the pre-season against the wavering Kansas City Chiefs Thursday night 34-14. First string quarterback Alex Smith did not play Thursday night, and quarterbacks Chase Daniel, Tyler Bray and Aaron Murray went to town and tried to show their stuff. They were not very impressive.
In fact the entire Kansas City Chief team was again overloaded with penalties, and instead of moving forward positive plays were wiped out by their incessant visits to penalty city. By the end of the game the Chiefs had racked up an impressive 14 penalties with 134 negative yards.
The struggling Chiefs had managed to put 7 points on the scoreboard to the Packers 20 by the end of the first half. Rookie quarterback Tyler Bray launched a 45-yard delivery to A.J. Jenkins and then sent the touchdown through from the 2 yard line with Richard Gordon.

Aaron Murray was in as Chief quarterback after Tyler Bray got injured and put together a drive that somehow got them to first and goal, and Joe McKnight blasted one through with the help of rookie Laurent Duvernay-Tardiff. Rookie Cairo Santos scored the extra point.
Green Bay Packer quarterbacks breezed through the game scoring at will; Packers who played were Matt Flynn and Scott Tolzien.
The Kansas City Chiefs will play their opening game, at Arrowhead Stadium against the Tennessee Titans on Sept. 7 at noon CDT. The Titans went 2-2 in the pre-season and fell to the Minnesota Vikings 19-3 Thursday night. The Chiefs defeated the Titans 26-17 in October last year and didn’t play Tennessee in 2012.
The Packers, with a pre-season record of 3-1, open playing the champion Seahawks at Seattle Sept. 4.
On Sept. 14 the Chiefs meet the Broncos at Denver.
