Aaron Rodgers: "I’m playing next week"

But having to settle for field goals on three of four red-zone possessions ultimately cost them the opportunity to put the game away.

Aaron Rodgers and the Packers will look to improve their record to 2-0 next week against the Minnesota Vikings at home.

With that in mind, what transpired in Sunday night's game at Lambeau had the National Football League world on edge.

Everything pointed to a disappointing and frustrating start to the season for Green Bay as they were down to their hated rivals and also saw Aaron Rodgers get carted off with a left knee injury in the second quarter.


Nagy and Vic Fangio deserve credit for calling a masterful first half that put the Packers all the way back against the wall.

Many on Twitter were distraught over this development, especially after Rodgers missed so much time past year with his collarbone injury.

It was 20-0 after Bears kicker Cody Parkey tacked on a 33-yard field goal with 9 minutes, 14 seconds remaining in the third quarter.

The Bears offense ground to a self-inflicted halt.


"I think I was just coming on the back side, and, I mean, I'm really kind of beating myself up over that", Matthews said. He'd soon toss for 12-yards to Davante Adams to get the game to 20-17 before pushing past the Bears with a 75-yard touchdown pass to Randall Cobb. "We'll do tests [Monday], and you'll get a better answer Wednesday when I talk". I was thinking about walking from the tunnel out all the way to the sideline, but I figured I might as well jog a little bit to let Doc McKenzie know I could do that because I hadn't done that yet in the bowels of the stadium here. He caught fire when he returned to the game, throwing three touchdowns and leading the Packers to an exciting win.

But after the break, the two teams switched roles and Rodgers did what only a player of his caliber can do. Trubisky completed 4 of 4 passes for 54 yards on the drive. "He'll be hard on himself because of who he is, but I wouldn't want it any other way".

"I love the game", Mack said.

"It was great knowing we got a W on the way as long as we took care of business", Perry said. They marched 86 yards on 10 plays, capped by Trubisky's two-yard touchdown run.
