Packers receivers come up huge in comeback win over Bears

Adjust Comment Print

Everything pointed to a disappointing and frustrating start to the season for Green Bay as they were down to their hated rivals and also saw Aaron Rodgers get carted off with a left knee injury in the second quarter.

Then he picked off a Kizer screen pass and returned it 27 yards for a touchdown that gave the Bears a 17-0 lead.

The team doctor had checked out his left knee after the Green Bay Packers quarterback was carted off the field in the second quarter.

Mack and the Bears defense have absolutely tormented the Packers for the first 30 minutes of game action.

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 felt like I left a lot of throws out there", Trubisky said.

The Bears will be looking to improve on their 5-11 record last season, while the Packers 7-9 record in 2017 was considerablyaffected by an absent Rodgers.

For Rodgers, we can just add it to the list. "I just had a feeing that we could spark it and get things going if we put together a couple drives".

Mack accomplished all that in the second quarter alone.

After scoring a touchdown the first time they touched the ball, the Bears offense failed to get into the end zone again the rest of the night.

Khalil Mack will be in Green Bay on Opening Night, but his stay there won't be as long as many Packers fans had hoped.

"I was really impressed with how he commanded the huddle and extended plays", Nagy said of Trubisky who, after a hot start, cooled off and finished with a 77.2 passer rating, completing 23 of 35 passes for 171 yards.

Based on La Canfora's report and what the Raiders have acknowledged publicly through Jon Gruden and Reggie McKenzie, it sounds like the Raiders wanted to extend Mack's contract with their initial offer or let him play out the final year of his rookie deal.

After racking up 146 total yards on the first two series, Chicago managed only 148 on its next eight series to finish with 294 for the game.

It was Green Bay's largest fourth-quarter comeback win in franchise history.

Each ended in a different wide receiver's hands, none of them of course named Jordy Nelson; Rodgers was going for his first major comeback without his longtime confidant in a decade, but these were not new faces.

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. But it all culminates in the suddenly much-anticipated Bears-Packers get-together on "Sunday Night Football".

The Packers plan to run more tests on their QB on Monday, though Rodgers seems to think his availability for next week's game against Minnesota is a foregone conclusion.
