Jon Gruden: 'Obviously, Khalil Mack didn't want to play here'

Jon Gruden: 'Obviously, Khalil Mack didn't want to play here'

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. Mack did appear to look a bit worn out in the second half, but his lack of impact is more likely because of the Packers emphasis on releasing the ball quickly before the Bears could get any pressure on their injured quarterback.

The Packers overcame a 20-point deficit to defeat the Bears 24-23.

After Rodgers slipped on the Lambeau Field turf throwing a pass in the second quarter, Bears defensive end Roy Robertson fell on his leg and wrenched his knee.

Another play that led to bad optics from Fuller is that when Khalil Mack and Leonard Floyd out hustled him on the Randall Cobb 75-yard game-winning touchdown.

The Packers trailed 17-0 at halftime and were down 20-0 by the time Rodgers returned to the field midway through the third quarter. Crabtree caught at least eight touchdowns in each of his three seasons in Oakland, and Nelson figures to be a popular end zone target at the very least. The biggest move of the Raiders' summer was trading Khalil Mack to the Chicago Bears last week for a pair of future first round picks. "Like I said, we're not that far".

"I'm playing next week", Rodgers said firmly when asked about his Week 2 status immediately after the game by NBC's Michelle Tafoya.


"We're still collecting all the information", McCarthy told reporters in Green Bay.

"We're paid to deal with injuries and play through 'em", Rodgers said after the victory.

Combined with the notion that 2018 could be a virtually Rodgers-less season, Kizer's play in the second quarter put Packers fans in a dark place.

"This will definitely go down as one my favorite memories, especially in this rivalry", Rodgers said.

Rodgers missed nine games last season due to a collarbone injury. Trubisky ran it in for a 2-yard TD on the read-option keeper, giving the Bears the early lead. Rodgers took control of the Packers' offense with 10:13 remaining in the first half. "But at the same time, I want our guys, our team, to learn from this, and they will".
