Packers to face LBs Khalil Mack Roquan Smith for 20-30 plays vs. Bears

Aaron Rodgers and the Packers will look to improve their record to 2-0 next week against the Minnesota Vikings at home.

Taken from the field in a cart in the first half after injuring his left knee, Rodgers returned in the second half and re-entered the game. Going 20-for-30, Rodger threw for 286 yards and three touchdowns.

Rodgers went down awkwardly after being sacked by Bears defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris.

Nick Perry sacked the Bears' Mitchell Trubisky on fourth-and-10 with 58 seconds to complete the comeback.

Two of the teams squared off against one another, and the game in Green Bay between the Bears and Packers is one that will be talked about for a long time.

When Rodgers finally put the Packers ahead with a 75-yard touchdown pass to Randall Cobb with two minutes, 13 seconds remaining, Pettine's defense stopped the Bears twice on the final series of the game to seal the victory. Until then, relive tonight's madness with the top reactions of the night by way of your trusty Twitter community.

While the Bears' offense remains a work in progress, a defense buoyed by a hysterically-good first half from Mack looked good enough to earn Matt Nagy a comfortable win in his head coaching debut. They reached the playoffs for eight straight seasons before going 7-9 last season, when Rodgers missed nine games because of a broken collarbone. However, both teams missed potential game-winning field goals before the clock ran out, leaving the Steelers and Browns knotted at 21 for the first tie of the National Football League season. The result was Rodgers operating nearly exclusively a no-huddle two-minute offense with plenty of quick throws.

"I'm playing next week", Rodgers said as a very full night came to a close.

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

"Walking out (for) the second half", Rodgers said when asked when he knew the Packers would win. And I do. And when you get the crowd going and the defense starts believing, that lead is shrinking and you realize if you get a couple of stops here this thing could be over in our favor, you know, guys picked it up and made some plays on defense, got some stops, held them to a field goal.

Bears: Host the Seattle Seahawks next Monday.
