Aaron Rodgers Leads Packers to Comeback Win After Dramatic Return from Injury

Posted September 11, 2018

Rodgers left the game in the first half with an apparent knee injury, only to come back in the third quarter and throw three second-half touchdowns. Mack has done it twice, the first time with the Raiders in 2016.

He was a difference-maker in his first game since the Bears acquired the outside linebacker last week in a trade with the Oakland Raiders.

In Sunday's other games, five-time Super Bowl victor Tom Brady showed no sign of age catching up with him as the 41-year-old threw three touchdown passes for the New England Patriots who beat the Houston Texans and their returning defensive star JJ Watt 27-20.

"You know we talked about finishing and we didn't do that", Nagy said.

"It was great knowing we got a W on the way as long as we took care of business", Perry said. Even more agonizing for the Bears, cornerback Kyle Fuller just had dropped what would have been an outcome-sealing interception.

"You prepare all offseason for the first game of the season, so I wanted to come back and make an impact, but you want to win these games", Mack said. "You get down to the red zone and you come up with a bunch of field goals and it feels OK because we got some points and we are taking care of the football". I was disappointed with the field goal.

And then he just started to play. "We're paid to deal with injuries and play through 'em". And then Randall ran about 80 yards for a touchdown.

B | Jordan Howard (15 carries, 82 yards) almost finished off the Packers late in the fourth quarter, breaking off 16- and 11-yard runs. The 75-yard score gave the Packers the lead for the first time all night with 2:29 remaining, capping a 24-point flourish in the span of about 22 game minutes. They are 6-11-1 in games he has not started since the beginning of the 2008 season.

He's back, and he vowed late Sunday night that he's staying. Instead of extending the play and waiting for someone to get open downfield, Rodgers was forced to throw quicker, shorter passes and rely much more on timing with his receivers.
