It's hard to come up with any big plays by the Green Bay Packers since so few were made in their loss to the Chiefs. The defense didn't record a sack or an interception. They didn't force a fumble much less recover one. Instead these five nominated plays were ones in the red zone when the Packers forced the Chiefs to settle for a field goal, and attempt a failed 4th down conversion.
From the play-by-play at NFL.com.
(9:03) 8-K.Orton pass incomplete short right to 44-L.McClain (42-M.Burnett).
The first time they had to settle for a field goal, Morgan Burnett was right on the inside and he helped force the pass wide.
(:19) (Shotgun) 8-K.Orton pass incomplete short left to 82-D.Bowe.
Their second drive in the red zone leads to another field goal.
(3:39) 26-J.Battle up the middle to GB 3 for no gain (98-C.Wilson).
Instead of settling for another field goal, the Chiefs went for it on 4th down on the Packers 3 yard line. C.J. Wilson got credit for the tackle, but it was a team effort to blow up that play. B.J. Raji led the way by getting into the backfield and forcing it back inside.
(4:35) (Shotgun) 8-K.Orton pass short left to 44-L.McClain to GB 28 for 9 yards (93-E.Walden).
This was a much tougher play for the Chiefs to convert on 3rd and 14, but it forced another field goal.
(12:11) (Shotgun) 8-K.Orton pass short middle to 22-D.McCluster to GB 2 for 8 yards (52-C.Matthews).
After the big play that looked like a fumble out of the back of the end zone, the Chiefs had the ball, 1st and goal at the Packers 3 yard line. I picked the 3rd down play that forced the Chiefs to kick another field goal, but all three plays had a part to play in stuffing another red zone drive.
