Even Khalil Mack, who was an absolute wrecking ball before intermission, was limited to merely one tackle in the second half, when Rodgers, fighting through a knee injury, brought Green Bay back with a quick-hitting attack and assasin mindset the Bears know all too well.

Rodgers went down awkwardly after being sacked by Bears defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris.

He initially tried to get up, then went back down, and was attended to by trainers. I talked to five Packers players postgame and all of them said they had no idea Rodgers would return to play in the second half after he injured his knee in the second quarter.

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.

Rodgers was hurt in the second quarter of Sunday's game after being sacked, limping to the sidelines before being carted to the locker room.

Many experts favour Green Bay to make the most of home field advantage and take the victory when the teams meet in this NFC North rival match.


B | Jordan Howard (15 carries, 82 yards) almost finished off the Packers late in the fourth quarter, breaking off 16- and 11-yard runs.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) - The Green Bay Packers have confirmed that Aaron Rodgers has a knee injury and his return is questionable.

Aaron Rodgers has struggled with injuries in the past, going down in Week 6 last season with a shoulder injury that required surgery. It took a super-hero performance from Rodgers, an underrated effort from the defense and big-time production from the top three receivers to get it done Sunday night at Lambeau Field. The Packers were trailing 20-0. I'll bet Jon Gruden and his coaching staff stayed disciplined and mainly steered away from the televisions tonight, but the players were watching.

The Bears came back down to Earth a bit in the second half, but they still gave fans plenty of reasons to be optimistic about their success in 2018.

Trubisky made a valiant effort, going 23-of-35 passing for 171 yards.

The go-ahead score was a 75-yard catch-and-run touchdown by Randall Cobb with 2:13 remaining.
