Packers receivers come up huge in comeback win over Bears

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

Over the past week, those hopes have been updated with visions of No. 52 causing nightmares for No. 12.

It would only take the Packers three plays.

Well the dream was just that for a few hours Sunday night, then it turned into a nightmare. He made short catches underneath all night, and when an opportunity for a big play presented itself late, he seized it, splitting the Bears defense for the game-winning score.

That being said, what the heck was Matt Nagy thinking on the Bears' second to last drive? This lead to Mitchell Trubisky having a high completion rate, a low yards per attempt rate and four sacks. No other player on the Packers roster produced more than 25 receiving yards.

After that, it was Mack and the defense that took center stage.

Rodgers was injured when Bears defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris seemed to fall on his left knee after a second-quarter sack. The lineman landed on Rodgers. Packers backup quarterback DeShone Kizer entered the game with 6:44 to play in the second quarter.

In the first half of his first outing in blue and orange, Mack recorded a strip sack, ran back a pick-six to push the Bears' lead and added another sack on top of all that.

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

But Ma on Thursday told Bloomberg TV that he was mulling an early retirement similar to Bill Gates' early exit from Microsoft. According to the paper current CEO Daniel Zhang is a "candidate" to replace Ma, who plans to pursue philanthropy in education.

The quarterback initially tried to get up, then went back down, and was attended to by trainers.

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

The hobbling two-time NFL MVP threw three touchdown passes in the second half after returning from injury, and the Green Bay Packers overcame a 20-point deficit for a thrilling 24-23 win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday night.

Meanwhile, Aaron Rodgers is fully healthy after playing in just seven games last season.

"I would never talk about the discussions I had with another team about anything", Gutekunst said to the Green Bay media following roster cutdowns.

With over two minutes left on the clock, Trubisky and the offense got the ball back.

The ground attack was better, but the check downs were the calls.
