"You prepare all offseason for the first game of the season, so I wanted to come back and make an impact", Mack said. The mere fact that the Packers medical staff signed off on bringing him back seems to indicate that his injury as serious as initially feared.
Patrick posted a message for Rodgers on Instagram following that insane second half comeback.
The offense was versatile, explosive, exciting and productive as Matt Nagy took his bag of tricks he'd been hiding throughout the preseason and dumped it out all over Lambeau Field. When the Bears went to the locker room at halftime, the Mack Show was already in full production, featuring a first-half Mack strip-sack and a pick-six touchdown.
The Packers had never before overcome a 17-point fourth-quarter deficit in their 100-year history. Kizer's two big turnovers to Khalil Mack should've been the difference for the Bears.
The Green Bay Packers fell behind the Chicago Bears on Sunday night. Kizer showed promise in his initial drive, moving the offense down the field, but he then showed the same play from a year ago in Cleveland with poor ball security.
Bills bench QB Peterman for Allen against Ravens
In that Week 11 game against the Chargers , Peterman was 6 of 14 for 66 yards and oh by the way, he threw FIVE interceptions. After winning the job from Allen in the preseason, Peterman is once again fighting to be No. 1.
The new offense led by Mitchell Trubisky started things off the right way as they debuted a number of different formations over a ten-play, 86 yard drive.
This isn't to absolve the Bears' offense for not making plays as the Packers clawed back into this game. Then Rodgers completed the comeback as he found a wide open Cobb over the middle, who raced downfield for a 75-yard touchdown to give Green Bay the one-point lead. They know how to get to the ball quick and hike it and try to catch you in a substitution.
There's little the three-time Pro-Bowl linebacker didn't do.
But after the break, the two teams switched roles and Rodgers did what only a player of his caliber can do.
He finished 20 of 30 for 286 yards, including 17 of 23 for 273 yards in the second half.
McCarthy said he was prepared to go with Kizer to start the second half until getting the word from the team doctor in the tunnel. They were costly, with the first taking away at least three points and the second (a awful interception) handing the Bears seven easy points. So I don't know what that really means because now I'm a Packers fan. They came after all of Chicago assumed they had the game won.
