Aaron Rodgers' comeback adds another chapter to book of legend

Aaron Rodgers' comeback adds another chapter to book of legend

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

Trubisky continued the momentum after halftime, leading the Bears on a 60-yard drive that led to a 33-yard Parkey field goal that made it 20-0.

It was Rodgers' first regular-season home game since September 28 against the Bears.

The Green Bay Packers defeated the Chicago Bears on Sunday night, 24-23, concluding the NFL's first full Sunday of action.

I originally wrote this lead to read it was impossible to tell which side of the ball for the Bears was more impressive Sunday night at Green Bay: the offense or defense. Kizer's first two series after Rodgers departed were disastrous, both because of the newest Bears defender, Khalil Mack.

Delays for lightning lasted a total of 3 hours, 59 minutes, and the game took 7 hours, 10 minutes to play.

In the first half of his first outing in blue and orange, Mack recorded a strip sack, ran back a pick-six to push the Bears' lead and added another sack on top of all that. After coming back, Rodgers went 17-for-23 for 273 yards and three touchdowns.

Rodgers completed three of his seven passes for 13 yards and he was sacked twice - one of them being the fatal blow that sent him to the locker room. Green Bay's offensive line adjusted in the second half and did a better job shutting Mack down.

"I prepared all offseason for the first game of the season and I wanted to. make an impact", Mack said.

That comeback was highlighted by a 75-yard touchdown pass to Randall Cobb that put the Packers up for good.

After the game, NBC's Michele Tafoya asked Rodgers how confident he was that he'd be ready to go against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2. "All I got to say is I got to catch it". On Trubisky's longest completion of the night, Robinson ran a fade route from the slot, and was closely covered down the right sideline by Green Bay rookie cornerback Jaire Alexander, but was still able to come away with the catch. Up 20-17, Nagy called for a passing play on third down and a field goal on fourth.
