  • NFL notebook: Rodgers leaves with leg injury

Aaron Rodgers didn't just come back.

Rodgers was carted off the field in the first half after a knee injury, and the Bears built a 20-0 lead to take into halftime.

The Bears then stalled at the 14-yard line and settled for Cody Parkey's 32-yard field goal to push their lead to 23-17.

"We have a little saying around here: drop a pick, give up a touchdown", Rodgers said. Minutes later, he walked back on to the field and threw warm-up passes with backup DeShone Kizer before the start of the second half. He wanted to play it safe with his knee and avoid any unnecessary drop backs.

Bears defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris, 294 pounds, fell on Rodgers leg before he limped off the field and received attention in a sideline medical tent.

In the fourth quarter, the Super Bowl MVP led three touchdown drives, kicking things off with a 39-yard touchdown pass to Geronimo Allison. "That's why he's the GOAT", tight end Marcedes Lewis said.

Khalil Mack will be in Green Bay on Opening Night, but his stay there won't be as long as many Packers fans had hoped.

Trubisky has also scored on a 2-yard run. To say that Mack dominated the half would be an understatement.

Afterward, Rodgers told NBC he had hurt his knee on that first-half sack, but he guaranteed he would play next week. "I just have to be better". This was the first time the Packers were able to complete a comeback in that situation.

Khalil Mack got off to a rousing start with the Chicago Bears. Smith was limited, but sacked Kizer for a loss of nine yards on his very first play. "It stings", coach Matt Nagy said after his Bears debut. He's thrown a hail mary touchdown, and then to top that, he threw two hail mary passes in the same game ... in the playoffs, to send it to overtime.

"They were trying to get Mack on the field obviously as many plays as possible, which we figured".

The injury came after an aggressive rush from the Bears front four on a third-down play. It worked beautifully on Sunday night.

Each ended in a different wide receiver's hands, none of them of course named Jordy Nelson; Rodgers was going for his first major comeback without his longtime confidant in a decade, but these were not new faces.
