Aaron Rodgers returns to lead Pack to win against Bears

  • Aaron Rodgers returns to game after being carted to Packers locker room with knee injury

They came after the Bears had a 20-3 lead.

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

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. Rodgers wasn't sacked in the second half, and he was barely pressured, either, thanks to the get-it-out-quick gameplan.

The Bears went into the visitors' locker room at Lambeau Field to the sweet sound of boos, as Packers fans expressed their displeasure with the team's play to that point. On the following drive, Rodgers delivered a strike to receiver Geronimo Allison, who beat Kyle Fuller to make a 39-yard touchdown catch to cut the lead to ten. It worked beautifully on Sunday night. Here's to hoping the Packers' offensive line holds up better than it did in the first half Sunday night against Khalil Mack and co.

No one would have predicted it would take the Packers into the first minute of the fourth quarter to score their first touchdown of 2018. "They were just moving it and scoring quietly".

Buccaneers quarterback Fitzpatrick became just the second player in history to record 400 passing yards, four TD passes, no interceptions and also run in for a touchdown himself. Unfortunately for Green Bay, like past year, it appears Rodgers' season may come to a premature end.


Your daddy lives in Green Bay. We just had to play a lot better football in the second half and we did.

"It's hard (to put into words)", Rodgers told NBC after the game. It marks the fifth-straight time the Bears have lost to the Packers and the fifth-straight opening game loss for the team. "Cool game, but you got to finish".

There's little the three-time Pro-Bowl linebacker didn't do.

The first question might not be known until tests are completed later Monday on his left knee - the same one he had cleaned out after the 2015 season and the same one in which he tore his ACL in high school.

But a defense built around continuity and the big-splash additions of Mack and Roquan Smith (who didn't play much) wasn't able to come up with a stop on a single possession in the second half. He had two opportunities to win the game in the final minutes after outside linebacker Clay Matthews' terrible roughing-the-passer penalty. "I'll give you a better answer on Wednesday, but as long as there's no major issues I'll keep playing".
