  • Aaron Rodgers Led The Packers To An Amazing Comeback Win On One Leg

Aaron Rodgers heard the applause after walking out of the stadium tunnel and back on to the field.

But a few minutes after Rodgers was announced as "questionable" to return with a knee injury during halftime, he made his way out of the locker room to an optimistic roar from a nervy crowd at Lambeau Field. The calf injury of 2014 and hamstring injury of 2016 forced Rodgers and coach Mike McCarthy to adjust. The adrenaline kicked in.

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

GREEN BAY- Here are three thoughts from the Packers' improbable 24-23 comeback win over the Bears on Sunday night.

"It" was more of the same from Rodgers against the Bears.

Against the archrival Bears.

He returned for the Packers' first drive of the third quarter, with 9:10 left. He left the field on a cart, and a hush fell over Lambeau Field. Rodgers admitted after the game that he requested to run the offense out of strictly shotgun and pistol formations due to not feeling comfortable under center, and could be seen limping off the podium after the win.

And especially because how terrible the Packers played in the first half.

Rodgers was hurt in the second quarter after slipping to the turf while under pressure from linebacker Khalil Mack and defensive lineman Roy Robertson-Harris. Though he was essentially playing on one good leg, Rodgers was renewed in the second half. He also found Davante Adams and Geronimo Allison for touchdown passes.

"Obviously being more of a statue back there, had to deal the ball on time and make sure we had guys getting open". Rodgers returned from a first-half leg injury to lead a Packers comeback that culminated on a game-winning 75-yard pass to wide receiver Randall Cobb - the same Randall Cobb who beat the Bears on a 48-yard pass from Rodgers in the closing seconds of the final game of Marc Trestman's first season (2013).

Indeed, for most of the last quarter-century, the Packers have been the standard against which the Bears could measure their progress (or lack of same). And that's exactly what coach Matt Nagy wants after his team squandered a 20-0 lead.

Mitch Trubisky was slinging tight spirals all over the field and the defense swarmed around Aaron Rodgers and any Packer who touched the football through the first two quarters.

"I prepared all offseason for the first game of the season and I wanted to. make an impact", Mack said. They came after all of Chicago assumed they had the game won.
