Aaron Rodgers make clutch, game-tying touchdown pass to Randall Cobb

He left the field on a cart, and a hush fell over Lambeau Field. There was new assistant coach Jim Hostler, the pass-game coordinator. Mack had a 27-yard interception return for a touchdownagainst backup quarterback DeShone Kizer in the second quarter.

One by one, they all stopped by the winning quarterback's locker after a Sunday night filled with Aaron Rodgers' magic.

The Bears-Packers "Sunday Night Football" opener might have been the most insidious promo ever for NBC's fall "Chicago Med", "Chicago Fire" and "Chicago P.D".

And what buoying impact could his performance have on the Packers?

But at least the Packers have experience dealing with mobility-limiting injuries. Rodgers, it seemed, had avoided a major injury. The Bears appeared on fire, but ultimately the game was stolen by a one-legged man in Rodgers' jersey.

"(I was thinking) something special", he said.

The hobbling quarterback threw three touchdown passes in the fourth quarter after returning from injury, and the Green Bay Packers overcame a 20-point deficit for a thrilling 24-23 win over the Bears on Sunday night. "It's something they do and we gotta be able to react better". "It's the best thing he does". He was seen shaking his head when he finally made it onto the cart headed for the locker room.

"I'm really proud of our team". "We knew they were going to do some insane stuff to keep it simple; tackle over, lineman out at wide receiver spots, three guys in the backfield", Green Bay linebacker Blake Martinez said post-game.

And then he just started to play.

Two plays later, on third and 10 with no timeouts and the two-minute warning fast approaching, Rodgers found Cobb for that 75-yard game-winning touchdown.

"Obviously, that's a tough one for us".

"No, I'm planning on playing", Rodgers said.

That has seldom happened, from too many losses to the Packers and Brett Favre and then Rodgers. "If you can do it and deal with the pain, you should be out there".

"I want our guys to feel that", Nagy said via The Score.

But a defense built around continuity and the big-splash additions of Mack and Roquan Smith (who didn't play much) wasn't able to come up with a stop on a single possession in the second half.

How about what a newcomer like tight end Marcedes Lewis must think?

"Honestly, everybody is already used to it coming from No. 12", Packers running back Jamaal Williams said. And when Kyle Fuller had a chance to ice the game with an errant Rodgers throw right into his midsection, he dropped the ball.
