Packers edge Chiefs in preseason finaleSep 2, 2011 - 3:23 AM Green Bay, WI (Sports Network) - Vic So'oto picked off a Tyler Palko pass and returned it 33 yards for a go-ahead touchdown in the third quarter, lifting the Green Bay Packers past the Kansas City Chiefs, 20-19, in the final preseason tuneup for both teams.
Aaron Rodgers threw an eight-yard touchdown pass to Tom Crabtree in his only series for the Packers, who open the NFL schedule next Thursday when they host the New Orleans Saints in a battle of the last two Super Bowl champions.
