Green Bay Packers vs. Kansas City Chiefs Recap
September 28, 2015
For the football fanatic, last night’s Monday Night Football game was a chance to revisit the storied history of the NFL, as the Green Bay Packers and Kansas City Chiefs matched off in a throwback to the first Super Bowl ever, almost 50 years ago. Just like in that first game two generations of football fans before, this night would belong to the Packers.
Green Bay scored early and often on this night, and but for a late Chiefs surge, held control of this game from the very beginning. Ty Montgomery snagged the first of 5 Aaron Rodgers touchdown passes on the evening barely 5 minutes into the game. Rodgers completed all total, two dozen passes for more than 300 yards to go along with his handful of TD passes to help cement many people’s assertions that he is currently the best signal-caller in the game.
Alex Smith matched Rodgers in completions on the night, and nearly broke the 300-yard barrier for passing, but could in no way match his opponent’s methodical efficiency. Part of that was due to a stiff Packer run defense that consisted thwarted running attempts by the Chief’s prized rusher Jamaal Charles. While Charles did help keep Kansas City’s hopes alive with 3 touchdown runs on the night, he could not break the 50-yard mark in total yards.
After a heart-breaker home opener loss a week ago to divisional rival the Denver Broncos, the Chiefs saw their record fall to 1 win against 2 defeats, while Green Bay remained perfect on the 2015 season with their 3rd victory, bringing about more conversation for them to be the early Super Bowl favorite.
