Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (12) lies on the field being hit by Chicago Bears defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris during the second quarter of their game at Lambeau Field. Three second half scoring drives including 17 points in the fourth quarter will be the highlight. The Packers listed him as questionable at halftime, but minutes later he was back on the field throwing warmup tosses.
The Bears scored on their first two possessions of the game and began the second half in the same fashion, driving 60 yards on 11 plays before settling for Cody Parkey's 33-yard field goal that gave them a 20-0 lead.
Aaron Rodgers authored another miracle on Sunday night, leading the Packers on an epic comeback over the Bears.
The go-ahead score was a 75-yard catch-and-run touchdown by Randall Cobb with 2:13 remaining.
"I think I was just coming on the back side, and, I mean, I'm really kind of beating myself up over that", Matthews said.
Rodgers signed a four-year, $134-million contract extension on August 29.
It was Rodgers' first regular-season game back at Lambeau Field since last September against the Bears.
The last time Rodgers left the field on a cart, no good news came from it. They sent Oakland first-round selections in 2019 and 2020, a third-round pick in 2020 and a sixth-round pick in 2019; the Bears got Mack, a second-round pick in 2020 and a conditional fifth-round pick in 2020.
Rookie Oren Burks is out for the Packers' opener against the Chicago Bears, meaning either the recently acquired Antonio Morrison or Korey Toomer will start in his place at inside linebacker. Trubisky completed 23 passes, but amassed just 171 yards. But the offense was stalled again on fourth down as a sack-fumble put an end to a nightmare game that started like a dream. The Bears came out and earned their first 10-point lead over the Packers since 2007, with Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky looking sharp.
In addition to the young players growing into roles, the Packers still must answer this: Can they rush the passer adequately?
And fans and media will be hard on Fuller because of who he is, too, one of the highest-paid corners in the game, one these very Packers attempted to poach this offseason. On their second, they looked capable.
