Packers receivers come up huge in comeback win over Bears

While the heroics of Aaron Rodgers spoiled Mack's debut with the Bears, the young pass-rusher still had an incredible showing in the 24-23 loss.

The TD was the third Rodgers has accounted for in the fourth quarter, and could very well go down in Packer lore as an all-timer if the team can hold onto their one-point lead in the dying comments of this instant classic.

Khalil Mack's 27-yard interception return for a touchdown lifted the Bears to a 17-0 lead at halftime.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (12) lies on the field being hit by Chicago Bears defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris during the second quarter of their game at Lambeau Field. Even before Aaron Rodgers exited the game briefly with a leg injury, the Green Bay offense was struggling to move the ball with any sort of effectiveness. Until then, relive tonight's madness with the top reactions of the night by way of your trusty Twitter community. Rodgers also missed seven games in 2013 after suffering a broken collarbone. The Bears have a 10-0 lead early in the second quarter.

Kizer replaced Rodgers on Green Bay's next drive.

He made short catches underneath all night, and when an opportunity for a big play presented itself late, he seized it, splitting the Bears defense for the game-winning score.

He started quietly, getting 42 yards on his first drive back to set up Mason Crosby's 42-yard field goal to get the Packers on the board.

Rodgers had ACL surgery on his left knee while in college. DeShone Kizer is his backup quarterback.

Trubisky completed 8 of 9 passes for 99 yards to five different receivers on the two scoring drives, including passes of 33 yards to Allen Robinson II and 31 yards to Taylor Gabriel. Trubisky called his own number on an option and scored the first touchdown of the Nagy era on a two-yard run to make it 7-0.
