  • Halas Hall Musings Bears in awe of Khalil Mack but Vic Fangio keeps everyone grounded

It's easy to overreact to one big game, but the NFL reacted to a big first half of football from the Bears on Sunday night against the Green Bay Packers.

The Green Bay Packers have not given an official update on the severity of Aaron Rodgers' injury or whether he might be able to return.

All signs point to Mack, even without a training camp and still quite new to the Bears' defensive system, facing the Packers in Sunday night's season opener at Lambeau Field.

In between, former Cleveland Browns starter DeShone Kizer, who went 0-15 as a rookie last season, replaced Rodgers with the Packers trailing 10-0.

Probably the worst possible thing that could've happened to the Green Bay Packers happened Sunday night.

A Chicago defence featuring newly acquired star linebacker Khalil Mack dominated until the third quarter. At the time, with Chicago owning the scoreboard and the momentum, it was the kind of game-changing play worth his $90 million contract.

On the Packers next drive, Rodgers found receiver Geronimo Allison on a handsome 41-yard touchdown pass to cut the Bears lead to 20-10.

Davante Adams then found a connection with Rodgers, taking a pass and going 51 yards downfield to set up his later touchdown reception from 12 yards out to make it 20-17. The struggles and lack of cohesion shared by the starting group was obvious through the first half prior to Rodgers' injury.

In addition to the young players growing into roles, the Packers still must answer this: Can they rush the passer adequately? "We had to get adjusted and I think that first couple drives we were trying to do too much".

"No, I'm planning on playing", Rodgers said. The ovation from the crowd lifts you up, gives the energy, the momentum of the game, and you feel the tide turning. He ran 64 yards after the catch for a 75-yard go-ahead touchdown with 2:13 left.

In the end, though, none of Mack's exploits mattered, as the Packers, behind Rodgers' heroics, pulled off a 24-23 come-from-behind victory after being held scoreless by Chicago in the first half.

"You know we talked about finishing and we didn't do that", Nagy said.
