Aaron Rodgers made a return for the ages in the second half to lead the Packers back from a 20-point deficit for a 24-23 season-opening victory over the Chicago Bears.

In that game, Rodgers suffered a calf injury in the second quarter but returned early in the third in a 14-all tie to lead two touchdown drives en route to a 30-20 win and another division crown. The Green Bay Packers pulled off an unbelievable comeback win over the Chicago Bears despite heading into the fourth quarter down 17 points. I talked to five Packers players postgame and all of them said they had no idea Rodgers would return to play in the second half after he injured his knee in the second quarter. The Packers listed him as questionable at halftime, but minutes later he was back on the field throwing warmup tosses. He has thrown an interception returned for a 27-yard touchdown by Bears linebacker Khalil Mack.

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

Late last month, Rodgers signed a record four-year, $134 million contract extension.

Kizer, who was on the field while Aaron Rodgers was being tended off the field with a knee injury, simply did not stand a chance of doing anything good against the Bears' ferocious defense.

"This will definitely go down as one my favorite memories, especially in this rivalry", Rodgers said.

Rodgers injured his knee midway through the second quarter after going down on a sack.

After he was taken to the medical tent to be evaluated, Rodgers was carted to the locker room amid concern that Rodgers may have sustained a serious injury. What happened next might go down in Packers' lore as the "Cart Comeback" game.

Delays for lightning lasted a total of 3 hours, 59 minutes, and the game took 7 hours, 10 minutes to play. Trubisky completed 23 passes, but amassed just 171 yards. He's thrown a hail mary touchdown, and then to top that, he threw two hail mary passes in the same game ... in the playoffs, to send it to overtime.

And just like that, Rodgers tied the largest comeback win of his National Football League career, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

For a while, the Vikings' quarterback, Kirk Cousins, actually was making more money than he was.
