Chicago Bears: 3 surprises in loss to Green Bay Packers

Chicago Bears: 3 surprises in loss to Green Bay Packers

After beating archrivals, the Chicago Bears, in Lambeau Sunday night, September 9, Cobb showed off the game winning ball to his newborn son.

Aaron Rodgers returned from being carted off the field with a knee injury to lead the Green Bay Packers to a remarkable 24-23 victory over arch rivals the Chicago Bears.

That pass from Rodgers to Cobb brought the house down in Green Bay and made an already memorable game even harder to forget.

"In the first half, he was pretty much what we thought", coach Matt Nagy said.

Nobody was happier to see Aaron Rodgers' insane comeback Sunday night than Danica Patrick.

The Bears acquired Mack in a blockbuster deal with the Raiders on September 2 that included two first-round picks being sent back to Oakland.

In addition to the forced fumble, Perry had 5 total tackles on the night, 4 of which were solo, and one sack.

The Packers used anywhere from one to three defensive linemen in their pass-rush packages, while Blake Martinez was the only inside linebacker on the field throughout most of the game. Rodgers went down in the second quarter and was helped off the field by the training staff.

But Rodgers returned in the third quarter.

With Rodgers' return came an updated gameplan designed not only to keep a swarming Bears front seven away from the banged-up quarterback, but to put the pressure back on Vic Fangio's defense.

The Bears knew it was coming, and yet had no answers.

Traveling to Green Bay on the night the Packers celebrate their 100th anniversary is a tough challenge for any roster.

"They were trying to get Mack on the field obviously as many plays as possible, which we figured. It's something they do and we gotta be able to react better". Vic Fangio and Chicago's defense had it all their way. Mack's impact on the game wasn't close to what it was in the first half.

The game's highest-paid player trumped its highest-paid defender. He also found Davante Adams and Geronimo Allison for touchdown passes. Rodgers' knee appeared to bend awkwardly as a Bears defender fell on him.

"I just told him I've got to be in the pistol or the shotgun and not go under center", Rodgers said. Some openly questioned why the Packers would bring Rodgers back into a lost game. The offense needs to be better.

Amazingly, all of that changed in the second half. The Packers went field goal, touchdown, touchdown, touchdown before running out the clock.

The glory of any given Sunday was surely on display in last night's SNF.

And then he just started to play. They'll get another crack at Rodgers in December when the Packers come to Soldier Field. They came after all of Chicago assumed they had the game won.
