Aaron Rodgers: "I’m playing next week"

Aaron Rodgers:

After struggling a bit early then going down with an injury, quarterback Aaron Rodgers orchestrated a marvelous comeback. I was in our facility trying to get it loosened up. In fact, that's a complete understatement, as this game was as ugly as it gets for Green Bay and anyone associated with the franchise.

Packers: Aaron Rodgers and his trio of receivers caught fire in the second half, while breakdowns in coverage and big plays led to a Bears loss. "Cool game, but you got to finish". The Packers meet the Bears again later in the year, and next week take on the Minnesota Vikings.

Jimmy Garoppolo finally lost his first game as an National Football League starter at the eighth time of asking as he and the San Francisco 49ers felt the full force of the Minnesota Vikings' defence in a 24-16 defeat in Minneapolis.

Mack was officially credited with three total tackles and one additional quarterback hurry. Akiem Hicks and Roy Robertson-Harris plowed their way into the pocket multiple times, while the rest of this group flew to the ball and put a muzzle on the Packers' offense.

It all fell apart in the second half, after Rodgers returned from the injury.

"It's just a matter of getting settled in, especially against a guy like that", said Bulaga of Mack.

But the careful intentions of defensive coordinator Vic Fangio were thrown out when Mack came out looking dominant.

The Packers announced at halftime that the star quarterback was questionable to return.

"Playing behind Brett Favre for years, you realize you've got to be tough to play this position", Rodgers said. Rodgers went for 286 yards, three touchdowns and no picks. He was limited to seven games in 2017 because of a collarbone injury. The Packers saw multiple players in the secondary step up to make plays to keep the game alive as long as they did.

"It's a factor", Mack said, "but you really can't make excuses".

While the dress rehearsal game is excellent regarding seeing what you want to see in Week One, Nagy felt as though between his preparation, and between the joint practices that he saw enough.
