A former Packers QB struggles on their first drive
A former Packers quarterback had a rough first drive against the Minnesota Vikings Sunday. The Bears started quarterback Nathan Peterman after Justin Fields was ruled out earlier in the week. The Bears rotated players as the game progressed as the 3-13 Bears wanted to evaluate their full roster in a meaningless game.
Tim Boyle made his first appearance of the season against the Vikings. He overthrew a pass intended for wide receiver Chase Claypool. (It looked like there was miscommunication on the play.)

Not a great start for Boyle. However, he had a better second drive and was two of three passing for 33 yards as of late in the second quarter. The Bears were trailing the Vikigns 16-6 late in the second quarter. The Vikings have a chance to win the second seed, and could face the Packers in the Wild Card round.
