Assessing the play of Mitch Trubisky and Khalil Mack in Week 1

Aaron Rodgers carted off with injury just two quarters into Packers' season opener

Rodgers was hurt in the second quarter against the Chicago Bears on Sunday night after slipping to the turf while under pressure from linebacker Khalil Mack and defensive lineman Roy Robertson-Harris.

Matt Nagy pledged an aggressive approach across the board, the kind of pedal-down approach that is en vogue after his friend Doug Pederson led the Eagles to a Super Bowl title, so with the Bears facing fourth-and-4 from the Packers' 37-yard line midway through the second quarter, it was a no-brainer.

Danica Patrick watches boyfriend Aaron Rodgers on a TV at Lambeau Field after the Green Bay Packers beat the Chicago Bears in a dramatic comeback on Sunday night in Green Bay, Wisc.

The Bears jumping out to a 7-0 lead was the least surprising thing about Sunday night's game. After a single knee injury reopened the wounds from lost seasons of recent past, Rodgers plucked every cheesehead worldwide from an autumn of depression and bitterness.

Rodgers connected with receiver Randall Cobb for a catch-and-run through the secondary for a 75-yard touchdown and the go-ahead score with 2:13 left in the game.

The Packers are set to face the Minnesota Vikings in their next game.

The delay has frustrated Jean's grieving family members and raised questions about deferential treatment for police officers. He was then taken to a local hospital, where he later died, the police chief said. "Is this a white on black crime?" Jon W.

Rodgers play appeared to elevate once he returned to the action. He was hobbling a bit, but seized control with his second-half performance, completing 17 of 23 passes for 273 yards and three touchdowns. Rodgers heroics just adds to his comeback portfolio and more justification to why Rodgers is considered to be one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play.

"We're paid to deal with injuries and play through 'em", Rodgers said after the victory.

Due to severe weather delays caused by lightning, the Miami Dolphins v Tennessee Titans game lasted seven hours and eight minutes - the longest National Football League game ever recorded.

"Obviously, Khalil Mack didn't want to play here". But contract talks never got going, and so Mack was shipped off for the best offer out there. All the big-money guys came up small, including $56-million CB Kyle Fuller, who dropped a potential game-clinching interception late in the game and was toasted earlier on Geronimo Allison's 39-yard TD reception.

The Packers had finally found the end zone, and they had a chance.
