Bend High School alum Luke Musgrave had three catches for 50 yards in his NFL regular season debut, including a 37-yard grab in the second half, as his Green Bay Packers defeated the Chicago Bears 38-20 to open the season Sunday.
The game also marked the official regular season debut of Jordan Love as the Packers’ new starting quarterback, replacing four-time league MVP Aaron Rodgers. Musgrave was drafted with one of the picks the Packers obtained in Rodgers’ trade to the New York Jets.
Can we talk about this play to Luke Musgrave…?
