Green Bay Packers vs. Chicago Bears

Green Bay Packers vs. Chicago Bears

It's easy to overreact to one big game, but the NFL reacted to a big first half of football from the Bears on Sunday night against the Green Bay Packers.

Aaron Rodgers led the Packers back from a 17-point deficit in the fourth quarter.

Rodgers was injured when Bears defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris seemed to fall on his left knee after a second-quarter sack.

After spending a few minutes in the medical tent, Rodgers left the field on a cart.

But as Packers fans feared the worst, Rodgers made a surprising return to the field in the second half. The teams went to the locker room during the delay and stayed on the field for halftime, which was shortened to 3 minutes. Green Bay's offensive line adjusted in the second half and did a better job shutting Mack down. He also found Davante Adams and Geronimo Allison for touchdown passes.

Meanwhile, Aaron Rodgers is fully healthy after playing in just seven games last season. He wasn't putting much weight on his left leg as he left, but walked back onto the field to start the second half.

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

"It was going to have to take something really catastrophic injury-wise to keep me off the field in the second half", Rodgers said. On the next drive, the quarterback churned up 60 yards in nine plays as Cody Parkey finished the drive with a field goal to make it 10-0.

"(I was thinking) something special", he said.

In the end Aaron Rodgers did his thing, leading the Packers back to win the contest 24-23.

Nagy deserves some criticism for failing to adjust down the stretch, but Vic Fangio's defense did the same and fell apart when they were needed most.

Mitchell Trubisky was 23 of 35 for 171 yards. 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. Following Rodgers' recent whopper of an extension, he will count for $20.9 million this year, $26.5 million in 2019 and $32.6 million and $33.5 million, respectively, in the two seasons beyond that.
