Aaron Rodgers: "I’m playing next week"

"I don't think it looked like a win for a good portion of that 60 minutes", said Rodgers, who finished 20-of-30 passing for 286 yards and three touchdowns.

There are 15 games remaining in the regular season, but the Packers might not have a more memorable finish than what took place Sunday at Lambeau Field.

Bears pass rusher Khalil Mack, not Rodgers, was the best player on the field in the first half. Robertson-Harris was credited with the sack, and the play resulted in Rodgers leaving the game with a knee injury. Fuller, who ranked No. 2 in the National Football League last season in passes defensed, gifted a would-be game-sealing interception on a quick pass to Davante Adams, the Packers' No. 1 receiver who had scored on the previous possession - not against Fuller - and roasted Fuller in their previous meeting.

Some things in life are guaranteed: death, taxes, Aaron Rodgers is a beast, and the Browns can't win. The struggles and lack of cohesion shared by the starting group was obvious through the first half prior to Rodgers' injury.

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. Rodgers' knee appeared to bend awkwardly as a Bears defender fell on him. It took a super-hero performance from Rodgers, an underrated effort from the defense and big-time production from the top three receivers to get it done Sunday night at Lambeau Field.

"It's hard (to put into words)", Rodgers told NBC after the game.

The Bears came into this game planning to have Mack limit his workload after missing the entire preseason in a holdout with the Raiders.

Mack was everywhere, it seemed, as the Bears knocked Rodgers from the game.

"You prepare all offseason for the first game of the season, so I wanted to come back and make an impact, but you want to win these games", Mack said. It equaled the rally from down 20-0 in Week 13 of 2015 at Detroit - the Hail Mary game.

The Davante Adams drive - a 51-yard catch and run followed by a 12-yard touchdown catch - made it 20-17. "I just had a feeing that we could spark it and get things going if we put together a couple drives".

Hot in pursuit of Trubisky scrambling out of the pocket, Matthews made contact with the Bears quarterback shortly after he threw what turned out to be an incomplete pass intended for Taylor Gabriel downfield.
