Halftime Recap: Chiefs Score 17 Unanswered Points, Lead Packers, 17-7

The Kansas City Chiefs lead the Green Bay Packers, 17-7, after two quarters of play at Arrowhead Stadium. Running backs Knile Davis and Darrin Reaves each had a touchdown rushing for the Chiefs.

The first big play of the game came with less than 3 minutes remaining in the first quarter when Ty Montgomery of the Packers broke through the Chiefs line to block a punt by Dustin Colquitt. Colquitt managed to recover, but the Packers got the ball at their own 14. A play later, quarterback Joe Callahan found tight end Jared Cook in the back right part of the end zone for the touchdown.

The Packers led 7-0 after one quarter, but the Chiefs evened the game on the ensuing possession.

After three straight three-and-outs to start the game, QB Tyler Bray converted four first downs before handing it off to Davis for a 5-yard touchdown and 7-7 tie.

The Chiefs added to their lead later in the second quarter, when Bray orchestrated a 10-play drive, largely featuring WR Frankie Hammond Jr., who currently shares a tie for the team lead in receptions with 4. Reaves finished the drive with a 3-yard touchdown as the Chiefs went up 14-7.

Kicker Cairo Santos added a 42-yard field goal as the clock hit zero in the second quarter to give the Chiefs a 17-7 lead into the half.

Defensive lineman Nick Williams and linebacker Dadi Nicolas each sacked Callahan during the first quarter. LB Ramik Wilson forced a key fumble and turnover with the Packers driving late in the second quarter. LB Terrance Smith recovered the football.

Wilson leads the defense in tackles with 5, including 1 for a loss.

Bray finished 10 of 17 for 104 yards passing. De’Anthony Thomas leads the team in yards receiving with 45 on 4 receptions.

Aaron Murray entered the game for Kansas City’s final two offensive drives of the half. The Chiefs will receive the ball to begin the third quarter.
