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

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

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. He wasn't the improvisational magician that he usually is on plays outside the pocket.

Rodgers led his team back from the dead with three fourth-quarter touchdowns to take down Wade's beloved Bears by a final score of 24-23.

"It's the Bear-Packer rivalry", Rodgers told NBC in an on-field postgame interview. So I went into the locker room, did all the tests.

While it's a disappointing beginning to the Matt Nagy era in Chicago, there were plenty of positives from the game, especially in the first half. Mack, the former National Football League defensive player of the year, was traded from the Oakland Raiders to the Bears at the beginning of this month for a package including two first-round draft picks. Once they traded him to Chicago, he signed a record-breaking, six-year, $141 million contract extension, with $90 million in guaranteed money and $60 million at signing. The Bears added another Parkey field goal on their first drive of the second half. Rodgers, it seemed, had avoided a major injury.

"I just felt something in it", Rodgers said. The doc and I had a conversation in there.

Which is what he did.

Olivia Newton-John reveals she has cancer for third time
Last year, the singer canceled her tour after she learned that she had "breast cancer that [had] metastasized to the sacrum". Olivia said: "In California, it's legal to grow a certain amount of plants for your own medicinal purposes".


At that point, the Packers were losing by 17 points and Aaron miraculously came back into the game after halftime.

"We're paid to deal with injuries and play through 'em", Rodgers said. I was disappointed with the field goal. He also ran for 32 yards on seven carries, including a 2-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. "It was pretty special".

The news didn't go down too well with some of his team-mates, who feel that one of their star players has hung them out to dry - and perhaps Bell could have made the difference in their draw at Cleveland. Rodgers demonstrated once more than having an otherworldly quarterback is more important than anything else. To start the Packers' 100th season.

He's back, and he vowed late Sunday night that he's staying.
