A field goal did them very little good there - it just made it so that a Packers field goal would tie them.

After coming back from a knee injury, the 34-year old quarterback led his Green Bay Packers to an insane comeback victory of 24-23 over the Chicago Bears Sunday night.

With 50 seconds left before halftime, Mack intercepted a Kizer pass and returned it 27 yards for a touchdown.

The Bears all but shut down new tight end Jimmy Graham, who caught two of four targets for only eight yards.

But after the break, the two teams switched roles and Rodgers did what only a player of his caliber can do. He also found Davante Adams and Geronimo Allison for touchdown passes. Rodgers grabbed at his leg, tried to get back up, and went back down again before he was finally able to limp off the field and into the blue medical tent on the sidelines. They did manage to rally from 14 down in the second half to force overtime.

Allison completed a terrific reception on Rodgers' first touchdown pass, hauling in the flawless throw in the corner of the end zone with Kyle Fuller trailing in coverage.

Tiger Woods calls Nike's Kaepernick campaign a 'beautiful spot'
But Woods, though he has been a Nike-sponsored athlete since turning professional in 1996, does not appear in the advert. The commercial has polarized opinion, with Trump among those critical of Nike for giving Kaepernick a public platform.

Aaron Rodgers didn't just come back.

"It's hard (to put into words)", Rodgers told NBC after the game. He sat out nine games during the 2017 season due to a broken collarbone.

"I prepared all offseason for the first game of the season and I wanted to ... make an impact", Mack said. However, both teams missed potential game-winning field goals before the clock ran out, leaving the Steelers and Browns knotted at 21 for the first tie of the National Football League season.

An offensive-minded coach, Nagy had the aggressive Bears' offense pushing the Packers around the field in the first half. The biggest concern over his career has been his inability to catch, however against the Packers, he was a factor as a receiver, catching five passes.

Trubisky made a valiant effort, going 23-of-35 passing for 171 yards. And I do. And when you get the crowd going and the defense starts believing, that lead is shrinking and you realize if you get a couple of stops here this thing could be over in our favor, you know, guys picked it up and made some plays on defense, got some stops, held them to a field goal.
