Aaron Rodgers says ‘I’m planning on playing’ vs. Minnesota after knee injury

You Don't Stop The $134 Million Man

The Packers' defense, in new coordinator Mike Pettine's first game, held the Bears to two field goals in the second half. And when Kyle Fuller had a chance to ice the game with an errant Rodgers throw right into his midsection, he dropped the ball.

The Packers posted the second-largest comeback in franchise history at Lambeau Field, behind only a rally from 21 points down to beat New Orleans on September 17, 1989. The struggles and lack of cohesion shared by the starting group was obvious through the first half prior to Rodgers' injury. What happened next might go down in Packers' lore as the "Cart Comeback" game.

And that's coming from someone who has played with Rodgers for his entire career.

How - if at all - will Rodgers be limited by his left-knee injury?

"You've seen it time and time again".

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was carted off, injured. We put together four scoring drives, guys making - G-mo [Geronimo Allison] a contested catch, yards after the catch on obviously Davante [Adams' touchdown] and Randall [Cobb's touchdown].

An offensive-minded coach, Nagy had the aggressive Bears' offense pushing the Packers around the field in the first half.

At the very least, the Bears" 20-0 lead becoming a 24-23 loss was one for "70s NBC detective Banacek's casebook, not so much a whodunit but a what-the ... and how?

"I just told him I've got to be in the pistol or the shotgun and not go under center", Rodgers said.

"You could take a few positives, but ultimately it's definitely a learning experience as far as finishing games late, especially close ones", outside linebacker Khalil Mack said. But as he showed against the Packers, it was well worth it. The offense did reach the Chicago 46, at which point Trubisky threw three straight incompletions before a sack and lost fumble ended the evening. There was DeShone Kizer, the backup quarterback. The Bears came out and earned their first 10-point lead over the Packers since 2007, with Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky looking sharp.

Traveling to Green Bay on the night the Packers celebrate their 100th anniversary is a tough challenge for any roster.

The first question might not be known until tests are completed later Monday on his left knee - the same one he had cleaned out after the 2015 season and the same one in which he tore his ACL in high school. There was some good, some bad, and a lot of ugly.

Rodgers said he did not believe McCarthy altered his playcalling upon his return. The Bears weren't able to do any of that, with big-chunk scoring plays of 39 and 75 yards marring their record, as well as a 51-yard gain that set up a touchdown.
