A lot of the starters, including the most important one, got the night off, so it was the backups taking on the Packers. The defensive starters continued their impressive preseason as they got a 3-and-out on their first two drives.
Mahomes was on the field briefly as the offense did the classic huddle in honor of Len Dawson, but it was Henne who actually got the start. After a hold by Wylie the Mahomes-less offense didn’t have enough juice to overcome a holding penalty and also went 3-and-out on the first drive.
The 2nd drive for the starters was better, but another holding penalty stalled the drive again, and they were forced to settle for a 44 yard field goal.
The backups were more hit-and-miss. QB3 Shane Buchele played well, leading many to call for him to become QB2. 4th round rookie CB Joshua Williams played less well, as he had a very rough night with penalties and receptions given up.
