One of the most unwanted streaks in the NFL has finally come to an end and it is all thanks to Jeremy Maclin.

The Kansas City Chiefs arrived in Wisconsin to take on the Green Bay Packers in a Monday night football that would end one of the strangest stories in sport.

Streak finally over

The Chiefs would go on to lose as the Packers left with a 38-28 victory thanks to incredible performances by quarterback Aaron Rodgers and wide receiver Randall Cobb.

The Packers arguably ran riot over the Chiefs who before the game were ranked 1st in the league against the run and 3rd against the pass.

However Rodgers cut them up like a knife through butter, but Green Bay also became the first the first team to allow a Kansas wide receiver to score for far too long.

Deep into the game, Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith unleashed a five yard pass to Jeremy Maclin who found the endzone.

Maclin became the first Chiefs Wide Receiver to score a touchdown since Dwayne Bowe in their week 14 match back in the 2013 season.

It may have taken almost two calendar years, but the Chiefs have finally found a wide receiver to score a touchdown for them in Maclin.

Still not enough

The Chiefs still fell to 1-2 tonight as the Packers excelled to 3-0 with yet another impressive home win, but it was the night of two hat-tricks.

It all started with the Packers where Rodgers threw five touchdown passes - four of which went to Randall Cobb who had a huge night.

It wasn't all about the Packers though as two fourth quarter touchdowns meant that Kansas runningback Jamaal Charles scored a hat-trick himself.

It was another strong performance by the Packers who now go on the road to the San Francisco 49ers while the Chiefs have to try and level their record up with a road trip to the in-form Cincinnati Bengals.
