Then Rodgers trotted back on the field.

Rodgers more than earned that $917,000 in the second half Sunday night at Lambeau Field, showing yet again just how ridiculously good and how indispensable to the Packers he is.

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

He was good to go.

The focus this week will be on the health of Rodgers ahead of a tough contest against the Minnesota Vikings. She held her hand over her mouth as Rodgers sliced up the Bears secondary, ultimately throwing a game-winning pass to Randal Cobb for a 75-yard touchdown.

The game wasn't flawless, and there will be time for critiques later, but what a treat it is to root for Aaron freaking Rodgers.

"That's exclusively for the coaches", Robinson said on the McNeil & Parkins Show on 670 The Score on Monday afternoon.

It was the first time in franchise history that the Packers won after trailing by 17 points or more entering the fourth quarter, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

For Rodgers, this was special.

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

Oakland didn't want to pay Mack. Trubisky called his own number on an option and scored the first touchdown of the Nagy era on a two-yard run to make it 7-0.

The Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears helped kick off the 2018 National Football League season in dramatic fashion with the Packers winning 24-23 in a comeback for the ages. He also found Davante Adams and Geronimo Allison for touchdown passes.

No one in green and gold is happy about Rodgers getting hurt, but it sure was nice to see him help his offensive line out a bit and deliver the ball on time. "It stings", coach Matt Nagy said after his Bears debut. It's $1.83 million per regular season game, and about $917,000 per half.
