Packers: Three takeaways from Week 1 victory over Bears

  • Aaron Rodgers carted off with injury just two quarters into Packers' season opener

A gimpy Rodgers returned in the second half and finally figured out the Bears. The Packers are 95-48 in regular season games he has started. God it was fun watching him lead his team back on Sunday night. Even with only one healthy knee, Rodgers insists he's playing next week. Again, it looked pretty grim - until it didn't.

McCarthy wouldn't offer a timeline as to when the Packers might learn more about Rodgers' injury.

That's a huge game in the division, of course, so Green Bay will take every edge it can get by keeping the Vikings guessing. "It would have had to take something really catastrophic injury-wise to keep me off the field in the second half".

While Bears coach Matt Nagy expressed some measure of regret over his play-calling in a heartbreaking 24-23 loss to the Packers at Lambeau Field on Sunday night, one of his key players would have none of that narrative. Gruden can spin it any way he wants, but the objective person will read right through said spin.

"I told the guys at half-time, 'If you shut them out, we're going to win.' We gave up six, but I just had a feeling if we could spark it and get things going".

Luis Enrique didn't want to reveal his side, although he said he knows what it will be, but did praise captain Sergio Ramos . The team did win the group by goal difference but it was surprised in the round of 16 by Russian Federation .

After an epic performance on Sunday Night Football, Khalil Mack reminded the football world just how valuable he is.

Allison doesn't have to be a Pro Bowler this year. "It was 20-0, and as soon as he gets (back) in, it changes the whole entire game". Trubisky called his own number on an option and scored the first touchdown of the Nagy era on a two-yard run to make it 7-0.

With limited mobility, Rodgers operated a no-huddle offense in the second half that kept him in the pocket.

Kizer was the Packers' quarterback for two series and produced two of the most embarrassing turnovers I've ever seen. If Green Bay had scored a touchdown, they would've won either way.
