Looking like he was done for the year with a left leg injury, Rodgers miraculously came back on the field and rallied his team to a thrilling 24-23 win over their chief rivals, the Chicago Bears. But that process went on throughout the second quarter, I want to say, into halftime.
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.
Mack finished the game with three total tackles - two solo - the sack and fumble recovery. "I told him I was going back".
Florence becomes a hurricane, takes aim at US Southeast
There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect, but officials say it is expected to become a hurricane by Monday. Forecasters said it is now around 1,500 miles east of the Windward Islands and is carrying winds of 65mph (100kph).
Slowed by a sore knee, Aaron Rodgers picked up the pace behind center. He powered his way to Kizer and ripped the football out of his hands with the Packers at the Bears' 9-yard line. Mack made an immediate impact in his first game since the Bears acquired the premier pass rusher in a blockbuster deal with the Oakland Raiders. That's the one thing on my mind. Two plays later Mack got a hand on Rodgers before defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris took him down for a sack. The lineman landed on Rodgers.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy said he was prepared to go with DeShone Kizer coming out of halftime, but knew as soon as Rodgers walked out of the tunnel that his franchise quarterback was ready to go.
"His performance speaks for itself", McCarthy said. The result was Rodgers operating nearly exclusively a no-huddle two-minute offense with plenty of quick throws.
Packers Quarterback Carted Off Field Against Bears, Return Uncertain
While there is no set prognosis for Aaron Rodgers' injury, former National Football League doctor David J. He was initially evaluated in the medical tent before being taken back to the locker room on a cart.
"I've never seen the field like that - catching the ball and it being wide open like that and having nothing but green grass", Cobb said in a postgame video interview posted on Packers.com.
"It was going to have to take something really catastrophic injury-wise to keep me off the field in the second half", Rodgers said. He went 23-for-35 for 171 yards.
Buccaneers quarterback Fitzpatrick became just the second player in history to record 400 passing yards, four TD passes, no interceptions and also run in for a touchdown himself. Lance Kendricks moved the sticks with a 13-yard catch in the second half, but it was a quiet night overall from the group.
