Packers take 14-10 lead over Panthers into halftime

WATCH Aaron Rodgers throws early TD pass in first game back

Byrd finished with three catches for 25 yards and two touchdowns, the second of which had no controversy.

Green Bay took the lead on this insane touchdown pass from Rodgers to Randall Cobb.

After having missed much of the year due to injury, Olsen entered Sunday with just four catches for 38 yards on the season.

Expecting Aaron Rodgers to return from his eight-week layoff and be the same ol' Rodgers with his surgically repaired collarbone would be a stretch.

Newton also threw for 242 yards and four touchdowns.

Following Jones' interception, Newton fired an end zone shot to receiver Damiere Byrd that was at first ruled incomplete.

Not since 2009 has Rodgers thrown three interceptions in a game, and he had only done it three times before in his career.

Aggressive playcalling by defensive coordinator Steve Wilks allowed Carolina's front seven to pressure Rodgers often.

You don't bring back the two-time NFL MVP thinking he will throw three interceptions. He was kept clean on 77 percent of his dropbacks, and had an adjusted completion percentage of 76.0 along with three touchdowns on those plays.

The first half had the feel of a playoff game, as a Christian McCaffrey-heavy drive put the Panthers up 7-0 on their first offensive possession.

Star Lotulelei and Thomas Davis combined on a sack to force a fourth and 14 with 5:46 to play, and the Packers down 31-17. The two are tied for the team's lead in sacks with 10, and Peppers became the fourth player in National Football League history with at least 10 seasons with 10 or more sacks. Trailing by 7 with 2:41 left in the game, the Packers recovered an onside kick. Panthers safety Mike Adams then fell on the ball to secure the victory. It was the team's fourth takeaway of the day.
