Green Bay was in control from the get-go, jumping out to a 31-7 lead by the third quarter before Kansas City seemed to gain a sense of urgency. For the final quarter and a half the Chiefs outscored the Packers 21-7, but by then it was too little, too late.

Kansas City quarterback Alex Smith and the Kansas City offense tallied 326 total yards of offense, compared to Green Bay’s 448. It was Rodgers’ efficiency on offense that carved up the Chiefs’ defense and helped the Packers control the ball for nearly 34 minutes of game time.
