Packers make franchise history with comeback win over Bears

  • Aaron Rodgers carted off with injury just two quarters into Packers' season opener

A gimpy Rodgers returned in the second half and finally figured out the Bears.

Rodgers stood on the sideline with his helmet on, and surprisingly was set to return to the game.

Davante Adams then found a connection with Rodgers, taking a pass and going 51 yards downfield to set up his later touchdown reception from 12 yards out to make it 20-17. "We'll do tests [Monday], and you'll get a better answer Wednesday when I talk".

They were just good enough to get beat.

But growing pains are to be expected from Trubisky, who ran an offense a year ago with training wheels and was never asked to be more than a game manager. Gruden, as he gets ready for his opener, sat down with his old colleagues at ESPN and, unsurprisingly, pulled the "he didn't want to be here" card when asked about Mack and why the dominant defensive end was dealt.

Later Rodgers said his playing status would be more clear later in the week. "That's what I love about him".




There is a very delicate balance for McCarthy to find in play-calling, and I don't want to make it sound obvious or easy.

A Chicago defense featuring newly acquired star linebacker Khalil Mack dominated until the third quarter. Only three players have done all of that in an National Football League game since 2000.

He started quietly, getting 42 yards on his first drive back to set up Mason Crosby's 42-yard field goal to get the Packers on the board.

It was a day of landmarks for Peterson who also scored his 100th rushing touchdown - putting him seventh in that particular list - and he looks like he'll get a few more this coming season for the Redskins.

The "New" Playbook: With all that transpired Sunday night, it can be easy to forget that the Packers' offense was pretty gross early on. But having to settle for field goals on three of four red-zone possessions ultimately cost them the opportunity to put the game away. "That's when you can really separate and help out the defense, continue to take pressure off them when we're scoring".
