Aaron Rodgers gives awesome quote on being a good teammate

  • Aaron Rodgers carted off with injury just two quarters into Packers' season opener

This is just about the worst possible occurrence for the Packers so early in their season, particularly given Rodgers' collarbone injury previous year that derailed the team's campaign and shoved them out of the playoff picture. Hopefully, it's not a major injury, but Rodgers did not look like a happy man when he left the field.

He was good to go.

"I had an opportunity and I just needed to make a play", Fuller said. To start the Packers' 100th season.

After the defense had failed to stanch the bleeding that saw the 20-point lead evaporate, special teams tried to run the Green Bay kickoff back and reached only the Chicago 18.

"It was great knowing we got a W on the way as long as we took care of business", Perry said.

And especially because how bad the Packers played in the first half.

"And when our offense is dominating, the defense got to dominate", he added. He caught fire when he returned to the game, throwing three touchdowns and leading the Packers to an exciting win.

A gimpy Rodgers returned in the second half and finally figured out the Bears.

The Geronimo Allison drive - four catches including a 39-yarder for a touchdown - made it a game. He threw three touchdown passes on way to the 24-23 victory.

"It's hard (to put into words)", Rodgers told NBC after the game. He sat out nine games during the 2017 season due to a broken collarbone.

Upon completing the deal, the Bears promptly signed Mack to a record six-year, $141 million contract. It equaled the rally from down 20-0 in Week 13 of 2015 at Detroit - the Hail Mary game.

McClure is a receptionist for the New Jersey Department of Transportation, and D'Amico is a carpenter, according to the Inquirer . The couple last month said that they purchased a camper and a used SUV for Bobbitt, although both remained in McClure's name.

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

After racking up 146 total yards on the first two series, Chicago managed only 148 on its next eight series to finish with 294 for the game. That's the only thing on my mind.

Rodgers went down awkwardly after being sacked by Bears defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris. He along with Mack landed awkwardly on Rodgers' left knee, which knocked him out for the rest of the first half.

"I felt like once I got back out there, when the adrenaline was going, it loosened up a little bit", Rodgers said.

Rodgers had ACL surgery on his left knee while in college. When Rodgers walked out of the tunnel at Lambeau Field as the second half was set to begin, he picked up his pace and jogged, earning a monstrous roar from the crowd.

His right arm was just fine. Rodgers wasn't sacked in the second half, and he was barely pressured, either, thanks to the get-it-out-quick gameplan.

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

Trubisky made a valiant effort, going 23-of-35 passing for 171 yards. He also ran for 32 yards on seven carries, including a 2-yard touchdown run in the first quarter.

Running back Jordan Howard used his patience and vision to hit the holes the Bears offensive line opened up.

It was only a week ago that Mack held his navy blue jersey before cameras at Halas Hall as newly minted as the face of this Bears defense. "When I got the ovation, I said 'We night as well win this thing".
