Adjust Comment Print

The team doctor had checked out his left knee after the Green Bay Packers quarterback was carted off the field in the second quarter.

According to Al Michaels, who was calling the game, the Packers' erasing of a 17-point deficit was the largest fourth quarter comeback in Packers history.

After he did so, Bears defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris sacked him and landed right on Rodgers' left knee.

A field goal drive in the third quarter finally got the Packers on the board, and then it was a virtuoso performance in the fourth that allowed them to reel in the Bears.

While Packers fans feared the worst, Rodgers surprised nearly everyone by coming out on the sideline for the second half. The free concert outside Lambeau Field helped thousands of Packer fans fire up a bit more for tonight's season opener against Green Bay's longtime rivals. After his return, he went 17-for-23, 273 yards, three touchdowns and improved to a 130.7 passer rating.

Mack made a mincemeat out of Green Bay's offense in the first half.

Rodgers signed a contract extension during the last week of the Packers training camp after he missed seven games last season to injury.

The game featured a number of improbable moments, including Aaron Rodgers' return from a knee injury, Kyle Fuller's dropped interception and Randall Cobb's clutch touchdown. With a slight limp and clearly protecting his left leg, Rodgers led Green Bay to four consecutive scoring drives in rallying the Packers to victory. "It would have had to take something really catastrophic injury wise to keep me out of the second half".

The Packers' defence, in new co-ordinator Mike Pettine's first game, held the Bears to two field goals in the second half.

Nagy deserves some criticism for failing to adjust down the stretch, but Vic Fangio's defense did the same and fell apart when they were needed most. Trubisky completed 23 passes, but amassed just 171 yards. Trubisky called his own number on an option and scored the first touchdown of the Nagy era on a two-yard run to make it 7-0.
