He closed the game with four consecutive scoring drives, completing the largest fourth-quarter comeback (17 points) in franchise history. He along with Mack landed awkwardly on Rodgers' left knee, which knocked him out for the rest of the first half.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers insists that he will be available to play against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

Rodgers play appeared to elevate once he returned to the action.

The comeback was extra special because of just how deeply Packers fans had fallen into a pit of despair before their spirits soared sky-high when Rodgers started painting a second-half masterpiece.

"When it's all said and done and they kick this guy out of the league, which eventually will happen to every player, who'll be looking out for him?"

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

"I prepared all offseason for the first game of the season and I wanted to. make an impact", Mack said.

Trubisky locked on to rookie Anthony Miller running a drag route on third-and-2 from the Packers' 14-yard line with 2:47 remaining.

There were two chapters to this game. Defeating the Bears on a national stage in that fashion-with all those ups and downs-played out like a five-act work from Shakespeare.
