Packers vs. Chiefs: DeShone Kizer hits Geronimo Allison for 31-yard TD

The Packers tied the game on a gorgeous throw from backup QB DeShone Kizer.

NFL: Green Bay Packers at Oakland Raiders Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Green Bay Packers saw backup quarterback DeShone Kizer throw an ugly interception on his first series of Thursday’s preseason game against the Kansas City Chiefs, but he helped make up for it on the very next drive. Leading the Packers down the field after a nice Trevor Davis kickoff return, Kizer faced a fourth-and-one from the Chiefs’ 31-yard line.

At the snap, Geronimo Allison runs up the left sideline and puts a double-move on the Chiefs’ cornerback, getting himself wide open up the sideline. Kizer sees him quickly and unloads a smooth deep ball, hitting Allison perfectly in the left part of the end zone.

Take a look at the highlight here:

That score tied the game at seven, as the Packers gave up a touchdown pass from Chad Henne to Demetrius Harris following Kizer’s interception.

Kizer has earned the Packers’ backup quarterback job by default this week after the team traded Brett Hundley to the Seattle Seahawks for a sixth-round draft pick in 2019. Tim Boyle is expected to see significant playing time in tonight’s game, but for now we have seen both the good and the bad from Kizer in this game.

Stay tuned for more from the final preseason contest.
