Highlights from Packers' unbelievable comeback win over Bears

Packers to face LBs Khalil Mack Roquan Smith for 20-30 plays vs. Bears

Everything pointed to a disappointing and frustrating start to the season for Green Bay as they were down to their hated rivals and also saw Aaron Rodgers get carted off with a left knee injury in the second quarter.

What went right: The secondary, in the second half at least.

B | Jordan Howard (15 carries, 82 yards) almost finished off the Packers late in the fourth quarter, breaking off 16- and 11-yard runs.

He finished with 286 yards passing and three touchdowns. Minutes later, he walked back on to the field and threw warm-up passes with backup DeShone Kizer before the start of the second half. In the second quarter, Rodgers was carted off to the locker room after a sack took him down, but it obviously couldn't hold him.

So the question is why were the Packers unable to move the ball with such ease before they started to play that way?

The Bears acquired Mack in a blockbuster deal with the Raiders on September 2 that included two first-round picks being sent back to Oakland.

"I told the guys at halftime, I said, 'If you shut 'em out, we're gonna win, ' " Rodgers said. The NFL is a better league when Aaron Rodgers plays.

For most of the first half, the Bears used a lot of short passes and outside runs to get their skill players in position to make defenders miss.

The Bears settled for field goals after failing to convert on third-and-goal from the 3, third-and-nine at the 15 and third-and-two at the 14. They fell behind by 20 - 20-0 as I recall.

The Packers plan to run more tests on their QB on Monday, though Rodgers seems to think his availability for next week's game against Minnesota is a foregone conclusion.

The baby boy - Caspian Cyrus Cobb - is barely a month old. but little man's already got a piece of Packer history for the rest of his life.

"Well, this is what we're paid to do", Rodgers said.

Rodgers returned in the second half, but it was obvious his leg was bothering him.

As a result, the Packers couldn't get into any kind of rhythm on offense, Rodgers was under pressure and the receivers weren't getting open. Brady says Rodgers is much more talented than he is. A stout defense that relies on pass rush and experience. "You want to come out and win these games and that's the only thing that matters".
