Aaron Rodgers puts knee pain aside, delivers comeback for the ages

  • Would you bet on the Bears because of the addition of Khalil Mack

That was the total contribution from receivers Davante Adams, Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison during the Green Bay Packers' incredible come-from-behind win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday night at Lambeau Field.

When the Packers began their first possession of the second half with 9:10 left in the third quarter, down 20-0 after the Bears opened the third quarter with a field goal, Rodgers was back on the field. In the previous five meeting with the Packers, the Bears failed to score more than 17 points four times while winning just once.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers left the field on a cart after he was injured on Roy Robertson-Harris' sack midway through the second quarter.

The Packers confirmed at halftime that Rodgers has a knee injury and listed him a questionable to return for the second half.

But as Packers fans feared the worst, Rodgers made a surprising return to the field in the second half.

B | Jordan Howard (15 carries, 82 yards) almost finished off the Packers late in the fourth quarter, breaking off 16- and 11-yard runs.

"I had the opportunity and just got to make the play", Fuller said.

Aaron Rodgers has struggled with injuries in the past, going down in Week 6 last season with a shoulder injury that required surgery.

"Just doing what we got to do to come out with a win and fixing the things that we weren't great at today", he said. Well, we take that back. In the early going, the Bears' offense was innovative, productive, interesting and exciting; all aspects that have gone missing in recent Bears attacks.

The injury happened in the second quarter when Rodgers stayed down after a sack.

Rookie Oren Burks is out for the Packers' opener against the Chicago Bears, meaning either the recently acquired Antonio Morrison or Korey Toomer will start in his place at inside linebacker.

Mack returned a 27-yard interception from backup quarterback DeShone Kizer for a touchdown. Mack wasn't the only Bears defender to enjoy an exemplary half, but he was the Chicago player whose star shone the brightest. Undoubtedly, they are busy preparing for their game against the Rams on Monday night. Trubisky completed his first seven passes, looking quite comfortable in new coach Matt Nagy's offense.
