Kansas City, MO - The Packers held on to beat the Kansas City Chiefs 31 - 24 at Arrowhead Stadium before 73,558 fans on Sunday night.

Packers running back Jamaal Williams made a spectacular catch in the back corner of the end zone to give the Packers a 24 -17 lead in the 4th quarter. 

It almost looked as if quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who was under pressure, was trying to throw the ball away on a third and one from the Kansas City 3 - yard line. 

"As I rolled to the right, I saw Jimmy (Graham) and somebody wrapping behind him. I was actually throwing a ball up to Jimmy to go up and get it," said Rodgers after the game.  "Luckily, the guy behind him (Williams) got it."

Williams had 3 catches for 14 yards, and the touchdown. He also rushed for 22 yards on 7 carries.

One of those carries was a 14-yard burst over the left guard that seem to save a 15 - play, 72-yard drive in the 3rd quarter, that took over 8 minutes off the clock, and kept the somewhat hot Chiefs offense off the field. The drive later stalled and resulted in a Mason Crosby field goal from 35 yards that tied the game at 17-17.

Williams spoke to reporters after the game. 

The Packers are now 7 - 1 for the season, and head to Los Angeles to face the Chargers next Sunday, who beat the Bears 17-16 after Chicago missed a last second field goal.
