Aaron Rodgers Leaves Game Injured, Then Returns To Lead Stunning Comeback

Adjust Comment Print

Kizer was the Packers' quarterback for two series and produced two of the most embarrassing turnovers I've ever seen.

Note: I'm a Packers fan and was ecstatic when the Bears opted to kick instead of go for it on fourth-and-2.

While Bears coach Matt Nagy expressed some measure of regret over his play-calling in a heartbreaking 24-23 loss to the Packers at Lambeau Field on Sunday night, one of his key players would have none of that narrative. But the offense was stalled again on fourth down as a sack-fumble put an end to a nightmare game that started like a dream.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was carted off the field in the second quarter with a knee injury, only to return after the half.

Even after Rodgers came back, Green Bay's win probability dropped under 5 percent when Rodgers was called for intentional grounding with 1:26 left in the third quarter, setting up a third-and-14 from the Packers' own 15-yard line.

Game recognize game. This is exactly what Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James proved when he praised Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers over the latter's game-winning heroics against the Chicago Bears during the NFL's opening weekend.

Mack lived up to the hype that he carried with him into Lambeau Field having a first half that would make the '85 Bears defensive coordinator Buddy Ryan proud.

We saw what Mack did for the Bears on Sunday night, but just imagine what he could do if on the same front as Donald, Suh and Michael Brockers.

"I'm playing next week", he said.

Kizer, who arrived via trade this offseason, went 4 for 7 for 55 yards and an interception (which was returned for a touchdown) in limited work in the second quarter. "But at the same time, I want our guys, our team, to learn from this, and they will".

Minnesota showed why people have been talking up their Super Bowl credentials - they look one of the most complete rosters in the league, and have the ideal test when they come up against Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers next weekend. Green Bay fell into a familiar and frustrating pattern early on, with Rodgers holding on to the ball while his receivers failed to sufficiently separate from their matchups (more on this later).

"We're still collecting all the information", McCarthy said.

Inspired by Rodgers' toughness, the defense stepped up and held Chicago to six points and 134 total yards of offense in the second half. Rodgers broke his collarbone in that game on a hit from linebacker Anthony Barr, and missed nine of the final 10 games of the season. "DeShone and I are with him a lot in the [indoor practice field] making sure we know the game plan and we're comfortable with it".
