Really strange start to the game. Patterson attempts to field the opening KO out of bounds to draw a flag, but he almost touches it inbounds first. Packers challenge the call (giving the Bears great field position). Maybe the 1st time in Bears-Packers history the opening KO has been challenged. Call stands. Bears begin at the 40.
