Aaron Rodgers is good to go next week

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

The Packers posted the second-largest comeback in franchise history at Lambeau Field, behind only a rally from 21 points down to beat New Orleans on September 17, 1989.

But as Packers fans feared the worst, Rodgers made a surprising return to the field in the second half.

Top Bears receiver Allen Robinson supported Nagy's decisions late his team unraveled against the Packers.

The first catch was the most crucial, as it came on third-and-14 with the Packers on their own 15-yard line and moved the chains. Chicago went up 10-0 on a Cody Parkey field goal to start the second quarter. In his first game with the Bears, Mack recorded three tackles, one sack, one interception, and one defensive touchdown.

McCarthy said he was prepared to go with Kizer to start the second half until getting the word from the team doctor in the tunnel.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer was asked about on how the Aaron Rodgers' injury impacts the Vikings in Week 2 since Minnesota will travel to play Green Bay.

"I felt like once I got back out there, when the adrenaline was going, it loosened up a little bit", Rodgers said. Even with only one healthy knee, Rodgers insists he's playing next week.

"I told the guys at halftime, I said, 'If you shut 'em out, we're gonna win, ' " Rodgers said.

It turned out to be the only offensive touchdown the Bears would score all night.

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

That's an absolutely foolish stance if we've ever seen one. Up 20-17, Nagy called for a passing play on third down and a field goal on fourth. After two first downs, Rodgers had eclipsed his total first-half stats. But you know again, I think we can take some good out of that game.

The "New" Playbook: With all that transpired Sunday night, it can be easy to forget that the Packers' offense was pretty gross early on.
