The Chiefs went nowhere with their red-zone possession to start the period, and K Harrison Butker was good from 35 yards out to make it 10-7.
Tim Boyle took over at QB for the Packers, and passes of 11 yards each to WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling and TE Robert Tonyan converted a pair of third-and-longs. Anotehr Boyle strike to Scantling gained 30 and put the ball on the KC 21.
RB Joel Bouagnon ripped off an 11-yard run, and on third-and-goal from the 7, Boyle hit Bouagnon in the flat and he dove for the pylon but came up just short. The Packers went for it again on fourth down, and a quick flip from Boyle to Tonyan was good for the 1-yard TD. K Mason Crosby’s PAT put the Packers up, 14-10, with 7:55 left in the half.
LB Greer Martini broke up a third-down pass over the middle to get the Packers’ defense a three-and-out, and WR Trevor Davis had the ball stripped on the punt return, but FB Joe Kerridge recovered for Green Bay.
Boyle hit Tonyan over the middle for 15 yards, and then a deep ball to WR Equanimeous St. Brown drew a pass interference penalty, putting the ball on the KC 14. RB Aaron Jones cut back across the field for a 13-yard run and then finished it with a 1-yard TD plunge, putting the Packers up 21-10.
McGloin’s deep ball to WR Byron Pringle was hauled in for a 62-yard gain to the Green Bay 13, and the Chiefs were in scoring territory again. Three plays later, McGloin found RB Darrel Williams on a wheel route out of the backfield for a 7-yard TD, and the Chiefs pulled within 21-17 with 1:56 left in the half.
Three straight incompletions for Boyle led to a quick punt, and the Chiefs took over on their own 33 with 1:32 on the clock. CB Demetri Goodson’s tight coverage on third down helped produce another three-and-out, and the Packers got one more shot in the half from their own 8.
A sack and false start prevented the Packers from going anywhere, and P JK Scott had to punt from his own end zone. Scott’s 55-yard boot put the Chiefs back on their own 40.
A pass to Pringle picked up 14 yards to the Green Bay 46, and the Chiefs used their last timeout with 13 seconds to go. A Hail Mary try for Pringle was deflected and intercepted by CB Herb Waters in the end zone on the half’s final play.
