KANSAS CITY – All that's left is to reduce the roster to 53 players by Saturday afternoon.
The Packers have ended their preseason with a 33-21 loss to the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium on Thursday night in a match (19659002). In the coming hours, final decisions on the squad will be made, as all NFL teams are under 15 Clock on 53 players have to give up CT Saturday. After a 20-hour renunciation period, the 10-man practice troop can also be established.
A key question for Packers is whether they keep two or three quarterbacks on their active duty roster. With Brett Hundley trading earlier this week, the preseason finals were handed over to DeShone Kizer and Tim Boyle, and both had their ups and downs.
Kizer began the game by catching on a fall but bounced back on the In the second series, Geronimo Allison is open for a 31
"DeShone did a good job, especially in the extended second-tier game," said head coach Mike McCarthy. "Geronimo was also excellent in the extended-play section."
Allison left no doubt that he was the No. 3 receiver in the team, not that there was much ahead of his solid, consistent stock. Kizer finished 5 of 7 for 57 yards and only played the two rows.
From there the game was handed over to Boyle, who started hot. He led two straight touchdown drives to lead the Packers to a 21-10 lead.
Boyle capped a 78-yard drive with a 1-yard TD flip to close tail Robert Tonyan and then running back Aaron Jones ended the second March with a 1-yard scoring leap. Jones, who is suspended for the first two regular season games, had nine transfers for 34 yards in his last action until week 3.
Tonyan had an 11-yard grab over the middle in front of his TD and a 15-yard catch to start another run and run past one of the Packers' deepest attacking positions.
"Robert had some really good snapshots in the first half, you could see him and Tim very well, these guys did that throughout the training camp," McCarthy said. "Tim feels very good about throwing the ball to him."
Boyles Night took a hard turn after these first two rides as he finished 15 of 31 for 127 yards with a TD pass and two interceptions in the second half
The second selection was 30 yards for a touchdown from the former Packers Cornerback Makinton Dorleant returned and finished a series of 23 straight Kansas City points to close the game.
"The focus was to get Tim Boyle to work as much as possible," said McCarthy. "It's a good tape to rate and learn from."
"There were a lot of different people playing there," McCarthy added, regarding Boyle's later problems. "He had a good rhythm in the first half, but our last group really had problems in the second half."
McCarthy declined to comment on whether any defensive players made a strong final impression. Four times, the Packers kept the Chiefs in the red zone, forcing field goals, and Kansas City's bottom game did not do much.
But Green Bay's defense posted no sacks in 44 Kansas City pass attempts by three different quarterbacks, and The only sales came from Herb Waters' interception on a first half Ave Maria in the end zone.
There was not much on special teams either. Trevor Davis drove all the punt and kickoff returns, but he never got away and fumbled once.
rookie punter JK Scott will be in the regular season on a strong note after posting a 52.0 yard gross average and 47.5 net averages to four punts.
