Rodgers returns from injury, Packers beat Bears 24-23

His night was presumed over, but Rodgers returned after halftime and led Green Bay to an improbable comeback win.

He then threw three touchdown passes in the second half and led the team to an unbelievable 24-23 win.

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.

He finished 20 of 30 for 286 yards, including 17 of 23 for 273 yards in the second half. The Bears went up 20-0 in the first half.

"We do have some information and no decision has been made".

"I just felt something in it", Rodgers said.

The Green Bay Packers just made quarterback Aaron Rodgers the NFL's highest-paid player with a four-year, $134 million mega-deal that, combined with the two years remaining on his existing contract, means he'll be paid approximately $176 million over the next six seasons.

A good way to gauge which Bears played well is by reviewing Pro Football Focus' grades from the game.

That's an absolutely foolish stance if we've ever seen one. Not only were they two scores down, but Aaron Rodgers had to leave the field due to a knee injury. Green Bay fell into a familiar and frustrating pattern early on, with Rodgers holding on to the ball while his receivers failed to sufficiently separate from their matchups (more on this later).

"We have to get ready to play", Gruden said.

"(I was thinking) something special", he said. Instead, he called a pass play in which tight end Dion Sims was the only option leaking out the back side, and the Packers stuffed Sims for no gain after he was knocked off his route. For him to get here seven days ago, take a full game plan and then apply it to really good opponent just shows you - to younger guys, whether it's offense or defense - what can be done.
