  • NFL notebook: Rodgers leaves with leg injury

After almost 10 minutes in the sideline examination tent, the team's medical staff carted Rodgers to the locker room midway through the second quarter of the season opener against the Bears.

After he did so, Bears defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris sacked him and landed right on Rodgers' left knee.

The return of Rodgers somehow turned around what had been shoddy pass protection, which contributed to Rodgers' injury in the first place. But it's the way he responded from that 2016 campaign, the bond he's formed with Vic Fangio and lessons he's learned from his toughest moments, that Bears fans now must hope he'll be able to mimic following another tough bout with adversity. He made short catches underneath all night, and when an opportunity for a big play presented itself late, he seized it, splitting the Bears defense for the game-winning score. At the time, with Chicago owning the scoreboard and the momentum, it was the kind of game-changing play worth his $90 million contract.

The Bears led 20-0 at one point and their defence dominated until the second half.


Davante Adams then found a connection with Rodgers, taking a pass and going 51 yards downfield to set up his later touchdown reception from 12 yards out to make it 20-17. On a goal-line play on the first drive where Trubisky ran it in for the touchdown, Chicago had left tackle Charles Leno Jr. lined up as the slot receiver. Undoubtedly, they are busy preparing for their game against the Rams on Monday night. "All I got to say is I got to catch it". Meanwhile, Chicago's defense blanked Green Bay 17-0 in the first half.

Allison completed a terrific reception on Rodgers' first touchdown pass, hauling in the flawless throw in the corner of the end zone with Kyle Fuller trailing in coverage.

"They were trying to get Mack on the field obviously as many plays as possible, which we figured". "But you want to win these games". Trubisky completed his first seven passes, looking quite comfortable in new coach Matt Nagy's offense.

Miami led 7-3 when the game was suspended for almost two hours late in the first half.
