Rodgers carted to locker room vs. Bears after knee injury

Look at that youthful face. Are you confident in Jets rookie QB Sam Darnold? Maybe if he’s getting 6 1/2 points Look at that youthful face. Are you confident in Jets rookie QB Sam Darnold? Maybe if he’s getting 6 1/2 points

B | Jordan Howard (15 carries, 82 yards) almost finished off the Packers late in the fourth quarter, breaking off 16- and 11-yard runs. It marks the fifth-straight time the Bears have lost to the Packers and the fifth-straight opening game loss for the team. If Green Bay had scored a touchdown, they would've won either way.

That comeback was highlighted by a 75-yard touchdown pass to Randall Cobb that put the Packers up for good.

"Obviously, that's a tough one for us".

But Rodgers returned to the field to begin the third quarter in a scene similar to the one from the Packers' 30-20 Lambeau victory over the Lions in the unofficial 2014 NFC North title game. Fuller, who ranked No. 2 in the National Football League last season in passes defensed, gifted a would-be game-sealing interception on a quick pass to Davante Adams, the Packers' No. 1 receiver who had scored on the previous possession - not against Fuller - and roasted Fuller in their previous meeting.

Mack almost stole the show. Not only did Mack sack the quarterback once, he also picked DeShone Kizer off and cashed it in for a 27-yard touchdown. The Raiders didn't want to give Mack $90 million guaranteed, but the Bears were willing pay the price and lose two first-round picks in the process. Khalil Mack was on fire, the offense was moving at will and went into the half with a 17-0 lead.

After the game, NBC's Michele Tafoya asked Rodgers how confident he was that he'd be ready to go against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2. That's the only thing on my mind.

He had heavy pressure on Rodgers early in the second quarter which resulted in a sack by Roy Robertson-Harris. The lineman landed on Rodgers.

At that moment, 9:09 p.m. local time, 54 minutes after Rodgers had trouble putting weight on his left leg, he ran back onto the field and the comeback began.

According to ESPN's Rob Demovsky, it was the same knee Rodgers suffered a torn ACL with in high school at Pleasant Valley.

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.

With limited mobility, Rodgers operated a no-huddle offence in the second half that kept him in the pocket.

For most of the first half, the Bears used a lot of short passes and outside runs to get their skill players in position to make defenders miss.

Rodgers said he would undergo additional tests on Monday, but "as long as there are no major issues, I'll keep playing".

An offensive-minded coach, Nagy had the aggressive Bears' offence pushing the Packers around the field in the first half.

Trubisky completed 8 of 9 passes for 99 yards to five different receivers on the two scoring drives, including passes of 33 yards to Allen Robinson II and 31 yards to Taylor Gabriel. Rodgers didn't look right in the second half, moving very gingerly, not really planting on that leg on every throw, and just generally not being his normal, super mobile self. "Making big-time plays", Nagy said.
