Aaron Rodgers Leads Packers to Comeback Win After Dramatic Return from Injury

Rodgers had ACL surgery on his left knee while in college.

Bears general manager Ryan Pace felt the deal gave the Bears a known commodity in Mack - the 2016 NFL Defensive Player of the Year and a three-time Pro Bowler - and was willing to give up future unknowns in the form of draft picks.

Again, a different conversation for a different time. "That guy's a warrior", Cobb said.

The Packers announced at halftime that the star quarterback was questionable to return. The lineman landed on Rodgers. He had ACL surgery on his left knee in college.

The Packers had to make a slight adjustment with their normally mobile quarterback limited to the pocket. They know how to get to the ball quick and hike it and try to catch you in a substitution.

"It was painful", Rodgers said of the playing with the knee injury, via the team's official website. "And we did a good job mixing things up in the second half with some of our quicker-hitter stuff and actually some of our more vertical stuff, too".

Mack had a sack, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery, an interception and a touchdown on defense, all in the first half.

He finished 20 of 30 for 286 yards, including 17 of 23 for 273 yards in the second half.

"Obviously, that's a tough one for us".

"He was doing well", coach Matt Nagy said.

Kizer replaced Rodgers on Green Bay's next drive. He had a strip-sack that led to another turnover.

After the game, Rodgers vowed to play next week against the Minnesota Vikings. The quarterback stepped up to avoid Mack's contact, and rookie linebacker Roquan Smith - who had entered on the play in his National Football League debut - wrapped up Kizer for a sack on his very first play.

The Bears acquired Mack in a blockbuster deal with the Raiders on September 2 that included two first-round picks being sent back to Oakland.

"I prepared all offseason for the first game of the season and I wanted to. make an impact", Mack said. That is the only thing on my mind. He went 23-for-35 for 171 yards. The Bears came out and earned their first 10-point lead over the Packers since 2007, with Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky looking sharp. The Bears weren't able to do any of that, with big-chunk scoring plays of 39 and 75 yards marring their record, as well as a 51-yard gain that set up a touchdown. "We'll do tests [Monday], and you'll get a better answer Wednesday when I talk". The Packers are 95-48 in regular season games he has started.

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.

McCarthy told reporters Monday that he and the offensive coaches were preparing for backup DeShone Kizer to finish Sunday night's game before finding out near the end of halftime that Rodgers was cleared to play.

"I'm playing next week", Rodgers said as a very full night came to a close.

Not a fucking Chicago Bears fan.
