Rodgers carted to locker room vs. Bears after knee injury

  • Packers to face LBs Khalil Mack Roquan Smith for 20-30 plays vs. Bears

"Just to be down like that and come back, that was sick", Packers left guard Lane Taylor said. Hopefully, it's not a major injury, but Rodgers did not look like a happy man when he left the field. "But then it tightened up there in the fourth quarter".

He caught nine passes for a career-high 142 yards, including a dramatic 75-yard touchdown that (combined with the extra point) put Green Bay ahead 24-23.

"No, I'm planning on playing", Rodgers said.

However, coming out of the halftime break, Michele Tafoya reported during the telecast that Rodgers would try to play in the second half. "Just a tremendous performance". Three plays after beating Bears cornerback Prince Amukamara for the 51-yard catch, Adams hauled in a short catch and juked his way around Amukamara and into the end zone from 12 yards out.

When Rodgers was forced out of the game with the knee injury, Mack really made his presence felt.

Backup quarterback DeShone Kizer struggled tremendously when he was given the chance to step in. The Bears offense ground to a self-inflicted halt. What happened next might go down in Packers' lore as the "Cart Comeback" game. We don't even need four quarters of football to do so.

My God, how could anybody hate Aaron Rodgers?

Mack's debut with the Bears defense inspired confidence for what could come during the six-year window in which he will earn up to $141 million. A stout defense that relies on pass rush and experience. In 2013, Rodgers found Cobb down the middle against the Bears in the fourth quarter on fourth down to win the NFC North as time ticked away. But it's the way he responded from that 2016 campaign, the bond he's formed with Vic Fangio and lessons he's learned from his toughest moments, that Bears fans now must hope he'll be able to mimic following another tough bout with adversity. General manager Brian Gutekunst took a gamble by not investing more in the offensive line during the offseason, and the Packers had real problems slowing down Chicago's strong front seven early on.

Hot in pursuit of Trubisky scrambling out of the pocket, Matthews made contact with the Bears quarterback shortly after he threw what turned out to be an incomplete pass intended for Taylor Gabriel downfield.
