Point of emphasis: Matthews knows the margin for error is smaller than ever for National Football League pass rushers, which made his personal foul in the waning moments of Sunday night's game even more hard to swallow.

Trubisky made a valiant effort, going 23-of-35 passing for 171 yards. Even superstars have nights like these.

The two-time NFL MVP just signed a four-year, $134 million contract extension, making him the highest-paid player in NFL history. Save that for the hot-take artists. This time around, he went down grabbing his knee, stood up, went down again before limping off the field.

The newest and most risky Bears' defender, Khalil Mack, had a field day with him.

After the game, Rodgers said his knee was swollen. You've got to tip your cap to him. As Lions fans know all too well, that's a bad way to try and beat Rodgers and the Packers.

"It's just a matter of getting settled in, especially against a guy like that", said Bulaga of Mack. I was walking up and down the sideline trying to keep it loose. We're going to relive this nightmare and take a look at the biggest surprises from Sunday night's disaster. That, he said, was the moment he knew the Packers would win.

"But we countered", Rodgers said.

Chicago vs. Green Bay: Bears stun Packers on 1st drive
Toomer, a fifth-year player, was signed by the Packers was last week after being cut by the San Francisco 49ers. Two of Chicago's other defensive regulars could be limited in some fashion against Green Bay.

The Browns famously went 0-16 last season but it seemed their luck had finally turned when they overturned a 21-7 fourth-quarter deficit to force overtime, and then saw the Steelers miss a game-winning kick, only for TJ Watt to block Zane Gonzalez's effort with eight seconds left. That's not good for the Packers. Most of the yards on the TD came after the catch.

"I prepared all offseason for the first game of the season", Mack said.

Then Rodgers returned, and the Packers' defense held the Bears in check. The pass was flawless and the catch spectacular.

But the Bears went three-and-out and gave it right back. After the Packers managed a third-quarter field goal, Rodgers threw his final-quarter touchdown strikes to wide receivers Geronimo Allison, Davante Adams and Randall Cobb. The Bears' defense, which had ramped up its pressure late, started looking gassed.

After Cobb stunned the Bears with his 75-yard touchdown catch, Chicago still had a chance to win the game.

Trubisky continued the momentum after halftime, leading the Bears on a 60-yard drive that led to a 33-yard Parkey field goal that made it 20-0. "I think last year they might've given me a nice warning, but it's changing this year".
