Aaron Rodgers returns to lead Pack to win against Bears

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

The Packers posted the second-largest comeback in franchise history at Lambeau Field, behind only a rally from 21 points down to beat New Orleans on September 17, 1989. What happened next might go down in Packers' lore as the "Cart Comeback" game.

Rodgers missed nine games last season due to a collarbone injury.

But then out comes Rodgers, the two-time NFL MVP, hobbling on one leg out of the locker room. Again, it looked pretty grim - until it didn't. The Packers defeated the Bears 24-23. He completed 17-of-23 passes for 273 yards and three touchdowns, with 75 of those yards coming on the game-winning touchdown throw to Randall Cobb.

Even if Rodgers plays, there's a good chance Boyle will be active just in case. "It would have had to take something really catastrophic injury-wise to keep me off the field in the second half". A field goal did them very little good there - it just made it so that a Packers field goal would tie them.

Mike Pettine: I don't want to overplay the performance of the Packers' defense Sunday night simply because they won.

After the stunning comeback, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers told NBC's Michele Tafoya, "I'm playing next week".

The NFL world had its eye on a few things Sunday, one of which was what Khalil Mack would do with the Bears. A three-time Pro Bowler and 2016 Defensive Player of the Year who logged almost 90 percent of Oakland's defensive snaps and never missed a start in four seasons, he felt he had nothing left to prove, hence the holdout.

Nagy on Monday did rue an earlier play call, admitting that a running play probably would've been the best approach on third-and-1 at the Bears' 34-yard line with 12:46 remaining and Chicago leading 20-10.

Kizer, who arrived via trade this offseason, went 4 for 7 for 55 yards and an interception (which was returned for a touchdown) in limited work in the second quarter.
