Game recap: Bears lose heartbreaker in opener

Would you bet on the Bears because of the addition of Khalil Mack

Aaron Rodgers was carted off the field in Sunday night's game against the Chicago Bears after landing awkwardly on his knee, a potentially huge blow for a team that has traditionally struggled without their franchise quarterback.

The Bears secondary played well most of the night but breakdowns in the second half doomed them.

"I realized I probably should jog", Rodgers said.

"It was great knowing we got a W on the way as long as we took care of business", Perry said.

A field goal drive offered a modest start to the second half, and Rodgers only got better from there. At the time, with Chicago owning the scoreboard and the momentum, it was the kind of game-changing play worth his $90 million contract. The 34-year-old managed to walk off the field with some assistance, but was carted from the sideline to the locker room shortly thereafter. It wasn't even a drive. Rodgers sandwiched two short passes to Randall Cobb around a double move to Adams that went for 51 yards.

Running back Jordan Howard used his patience and vision to hit the holes the Bears offensive line opened up. Remember when the narrative on Rodgers was that he could put up awesome stats and win games, but he couldn't lead comebacks? It was 20-0 when he returned.

That gave the Packers a chance to rally, and Rodgers took advantage of the opportunity.

"I felt like I left a lot of throws out there", Trubisky said. But I've never been a part of it.

The team announced at halftime that the two-time NFL MVP quarterback was questionable to return with a knee injury. It's also the same knee he had minor surgery on following the 2015 season.

The Bears, with help from star newcomer Khalil Mack, pressured the six-time Pro Bowler early and often as Rodgers completed only three-of-sevem passes for 13 yards, and was sacked twice. After coming back, Rodgers went 17-for-23 for 273 yards and three touchdowns. I'm definitely not near where I want to be.

In the second half, Rodgers returned to the game, leading the Packers on four straight scoring drives and erasing a 17-point fourth quarter deficit to beat the Bears 24-23.
