Rodgers leads Packers to unreal comeback vs. Bears

When Bears fans closed their eyes and imagined the flawless opening to the Matt Nagy era, they might have imagined a few things.

Rodgers' post-injury final totals were a stunning 17-of-23 for 273 yards and three touchdowns, including one emphatic chuck out of bounds to run out the final seconds.

He returned for the Packers' first drive of the third quarter, with 9:10 left.

Once the surprise was over it was clear that Nagy is definitely on to something and general manager Ryan Pace has significantly upgraded the toolbox he has to build it with, but there is a lot of work left to do. After he did so, Bears defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris sacked him and landed right on Rodgers' left knee.

The Bears led 20-0 at one point and their defence dominated until the second half.

Veteran sports reporter Skip Bayless reported that Rodgers, "Appeared to be slightly shaking his head as the cart took him to the locker room. and his eyes looked a little teary".

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

But a amusing thing happened on the way to the after party.

Sweden: Exit poll projects mixed voter message in election
Like other far-right parties in Europe, the Sweden Democrats worked to soften its neo-Nazi image in the lead-up to the election. Akesson had labeled the vote a choice between immigration and welfare in a campaign that was unusually antagonistic.

However, Rodgers' knee turned out to not be a severe injury, and after the Bears orchestrated a field goal drive to go up 20-0 to open the second half, out trotted Rodgers to lead the Packers offense.

In the fourth quarter, the Super Bowl MVP led three touchdown drives, kicking things off with a 39-yard touchdown pass to Geronimo Allison.

Mack almost stole the show.

Again, a different conversation for a different time.

Next week, the Bears will host the Seahawks on Monday Night Football while the Packers will welcome the Vikings to Lambeau Field.

The first half of the Bears-Packers game has been an absolute disaster for Jon Gruden and the Raiders.

Rodgers was playing behind his starting offensive line Sunday night, and it was the first time all throughout training camp that all five starters had lined up alongside each other.
