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


Prior to exiting Sunday's game, Rodgers was 3-for-7 for 13 yards and was sacked twice. Again, it looked pretty grim - until it didn't. Rodgers also missed seven games in 2013 after suffering a broken collarbone.

"No, I'm planning on playing", Rodgers said. "You can't have that, so we've got to put more pressure on the quarterback".

Remember when it was 20-0 in favor of Khalil Mack and the Bears?


Rodgers signed a four-year, $134-million contract extension on August 29. But as he showed against the Packers, it was well worth it.

Based on La Canfora's report and what the Raiders have acknowledged publicly through Jon Gruden and Reggie McKenzie, it sounds like the Raiders wanted to extend Mack's contract with their initial offer or let him play out the final year of his rookie deal.

It was night and day between the first- and second-half offenses of both teams.

Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky had a shot to answer with a winning drive, but Packers outside linebacker Nick Perry sacked Trubisky on fourth down to end the Bears' chance. Then Rodgers completed the comeback as he found a wide open Cobb over the middle, who raced downfield for a 75-yard touchdown to give Green Bay the one-point lead.


It sounds as if the Packers were not willing to fork over two first-round picks, even one that fell in 2020.
