The biggest stars to play for the Green Bay Leighton Vander Esch Jersey Packers and Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday night won't be around for the season opener , and it won't be because they're backups about to get cut.Demetrius Harris caught an early touchdown pass for Kansas City, and Aaron Jones ran for 34 yards and a score for Green Bay, then the Chiefs rallied in a game of backups and also-rans for a 33-21 victory in the preseason finale for both teams.Harris, expected to back up Travis Kelce at tight end, is suspended for the season opener for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. And Jones, the Packers' backup running back, is out the first two games for violating the same policy during the offseason.They were two of a handful of recognizable names to even take the field at Arrowhead Stadium.Packers coach Mike McCarthy and Chiefs counterpart Andy Reid had seen enough from their starters in training camp and the preseason, so they turned the game over to a plethora of backups trying to make the team — or, at least latch onto the practice squad when rosters are trimmed this weekend."It was great to see these young guys in there, give them an opportunity to play," Reid said. "They made (general manager) Brett Veach's job hard these next couple of days."Rookie safety Armani Watts intercepted two passes , and Makinton Dorleant returned another pick for a touchdown, as the Chiefs' defense finally made some plays. Chad Henne, Matt McGloin and Chase Litton were all solid under center for Kansas City as Patrick Mahomes watched from the sideline Dallas Cowboys T-Shirt , and undrafted free agent Byron Pringle had four catches for 122 yards before leaving with a hamstring injury.Their only real starter to play, Harrison Butker, was perfect on four field-goal attempts."We've got a lot of depth, especially at wide receiver, tight end and running back. Those guys are starters on other teams," Henne said, "and they showed it out there today."DeShone Kizer started for Green Bay and was 5 of 7 for 57 yards with a touchdown and a pick. The 2017 second-round draft choice of the Browns, Kizer is expected to back up Aaron Rodgers after the trade of erstwhile backup Brett Hundley to the Seahawks earlier this week."The quarterback focus was to get DeShone two series. Obviously he had the high throw on the first series," McCarthy said. "We definitely accomplished that and it'll be a good tape to evaluate."The Packers actually jumped to a 21-10 lead, but the Chiefs began to force turnovers against third-string quarterback Tim Boyle. McGloin and Litton were able to lead scoring drives, and Dorleant's pick-6 early in the fourth quarter put an exclamation mark on their comeback victory."It's a huge confidence boost," Watts said, "having a bunch of young guys making plays out there, our first year Dallas Cowboys Hats , getting out there and showing what we can do and contribute to this team."TRADE NEWSThe Chiefs agreed to trade OL Parker Ehinger to Dallas for CB Charvarius Ward, a person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press on Thursday night. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal was not expected to become official until Friday, a day before roster cuts.HOME COOKINGMcCarthy allowed most of his starters to remain in Green Bay rather than travel for a game in which they wouldn't play. That included Rodgers, who a day earlier signed a four-year, $134 million extension that could keep him with the team through the 2023 season.INJURIESAmong the Packers headed into the season with injury questions are LBs Oren Burks and WR Jake Kumerow, both of whom have shoulder injuries, and RB Devante Mays, who did not play against the Chiefs with a hamstring injury. Kansas City was without SS Eric Berry, who has missed most of camp with a heel injury and whose status for the opener remains unclear.NATIONAL ANTHEMNo demonstrations were evident during the national anthem.UP NEXTChiefs: visit AFC West-rival Chargers on Sept. 9.Packers: renew NFL's oldest rivalry by hosting Chicago. D.J Swearinger didn't even want a few hours to soak up a victory before preparing for the Dallas Cowboys.In the aftermath of a gutsy performance without two top players and after a short turnaround from an embarrassing defeat, the Washington Redskins safety figured he'd start looking at Cowboys film as soon as he got home. It's that kind of focus he wants all his teammates to have to make sure the roller-coaster Redskins don't take another dip with back-to-back games coming up against NFC East rivals."We've got the Cowboys coming in — there shouldn't be no laughing next week," Swearinger said after Washington beat the Carolina Panthers 23-17 Sunday. "The thing we've got to understand, man, we can't go up and down. This team goes up and down. We've got to stay consistent in our preparation. Whatever we did last week, we've got to stay consistent."Consistency has not exactly been a hallmark for the Redskins (3-2) in alternating not only wins and losses but games so uplifting and deflating that it's hard to get a read on what they are. A 43-19 blowout loss at the hands of the New Orleans Saints motivated players within only a few days to get ready for the Panthers Dallas Cowboys Hoodie , but upcoming games against Dallas and at the New York Giants should test their ability to respond to success."(It's about) staying focused and keeping that consistent approach," cornerback Quinton Dunbar said. "Don't get too high. Don't get too low. When you get wins, don't be high like you got the whole world in your hand. When you lose, your whole world turns down. It's about staying steady."In some ways, it helps that the Panthers limited the Redskins to 119 offensive yards in the second half and almost came back from a 17-point deficit. Cornerback Josh Norman said players realize "everything is not peaches and cream," which should help them stay focused for the Cowboys."There's room for improvement," tight end Jordan Reed said. "Even though we won this game, we definitely could have put up even more numbers and stopped them on defense. You see that and it motivates you to be the best that you can be. We haven't been that yet, so it's coming."Some things we learned from the Redskins' victory over the Panthers:ROARING DEFENSEAfter allowing only 288 yards and being on the wrong side of some turnovers by the offense, the Panthers' defense will need to be even better at the Philadelphia Eagles (3-3) on Sunday. Players gained some confidence from their play in the second half, but see some definite areas of need with the defending Super Bowl champions up next."We just have to make some more plays on defense," linebacker Luke Kuechly said. "We have to play better in the red zone. That's something that we'll get addressed and improve on moving forward."Adrian Peterson's 97 yards on 17 carries showed another glaring hole for Carolina, which entered tied for the eighth-best run defense in the league. Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz and running backs Wendell Smallwood and Corey Clement present another challenge in that department.PETERSON POWERDespite dealing with shoulder, knee and ankle injuries Customized Dallas Cowboys Jerseys , Peterson had another game that made it look like he's way younger than 33. Peterson never doubted he'd play and should be good to go against Dallas."It was definitely mind over matter," Peterson said. "It was game where you've just got to bite down and put your best foot forward. So that's what I did. I already had made up my mind by Friday that, 'Hey I'm gonna give it a go. I know it's going to be painful but its mind over matter and just keep pressing.' That's what I ended up doing."BIG GUYS BACKCarolina could easily point to two fumbles by rookie D.J. Moore and an interception by Cam Newton as the reasons for a disheartening loss . But the Panthers have reason for optimism in the coming weeks after getting tight end Greg Olsen back from a broken foot and linebacker Thomas Davis for his first game of the season after serving a suspension for performance-enhancers.Olsen had four catches for 48 yards; he gives Newton a big, reliable target in the passing game."Toward the second half, I felt like I was able to play pretty close to what I was hoping," Olsen said.Davis had six tackles and two passes defensed and feels he has another level to his game."Just have to be better," Davis said. "You have to get back into the feel of going out and playing football and that's something that I've learned today."SMITH SETTLES DOWNGoing 23 of 39 with an interception at New Orleans sent Redskins quarterback Alex Smith to a new low this season. He wasn't perfect in throwing 21 of 36 for 163 yards and two TDs against Carolina, even without running back Chris Thompson and receiver Jamison Crowder.Smith leaned on Reed (five catches for 36 yards) and fellow tight end Vernon Davis (three catches for 48 yards) in finding new ways to run the offense."I feel like we're untapped offensively — a lot of potential," Smith said. "I said untapped as we continue to find out who we are, our identity as an offense." Custom New Orleans Saints Jerseys
