Green Bay Packers preseason Finale Thursday night


The Green Bay Packers will attempt to echo last Thursday's win in Cincinnati as they finish up their preseason with a 6:00 p.m. game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

It will be the third year in a row the Packers play the Chiefs during the preseason, according to the Packers Dope Sheet. Last year, the Packers beat the Chiefs 20-19 during the September 1 preseason game at Lambeau Field. However during their regular season match up on December 18 the Packers fell to the Chiefs 19-14.

The Packers are also busily answering questions about the guy backing up NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers at quarterback.

That guy used to be Matt Flynn, who departed as an unrestricted free agent in March for a three-year, $19.5 million deal with the Seattle Seahawks.

That left the job to Graham Harrell, who was the third-string quarterback the past two seasons. He enters Thursday's preseason finale against Kansas City having completed just 32 of 63 passes for 261 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions for a passer rating of 53.7.
