Packers' first fourth-quarter deficit
By Kevin Seifert
KANSAS CITY -- For the first time all season, the Green Bay Packers are trailing in the fourth quarter of a game. As of this moment, it's 9-7 in favor of the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Packers, in fact, haven't trailed in the fourth quarter during any of the games in their current 19-game winning streak.
Their offense showed a bit of life in the third quarter, getting on the scoreboard on a 2-yard pass from Aaron Rodgers to Donald Driver. A 41-yard pass to tight end Jermichael Finley set up the score.
It appears the Packers will go the rest of the way without right tackle Bryan Bulaga, who re-injured his left knee and has been replaced by rookie Derek Sherrod. Barring major news, we'll settle in and watch the conclusion of this game. Look for a Rapid Reaction shortly thereafter.
