Aaron Rodgers continues to surprise us all.

The Green Bay Packers have come roaring back against the Chicago Bears behind quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The Bears had killed over six minutes off the clock, at which point they were at 3rd-and-2 at the Packers' 14-yard line with 2:42 remaining. Going 20-for-30, Rodger threw for 286 yards and three touchdowns. After he did so, Bears defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris sacked him and landed right on Rodgers' left knee. The recently acquired outside linebacker generated takeaways on the two drives that Packers backup quarterback DeShone Kizer was in the game in place of Rodgers at the end of the first half.


The Packers had a 3rd-and-9 play from their 3 when several Bears converged on Rodgers in the pocket. Meanwhile, Chicago's defense blanked Green Bay 17-0 in the first half. Until then, relive tonight's madness with the top reactions of the night by way of your trusty Twitter community. That should've iced the game; instead, Rodgers did what he does best. The Packers announced that Rodgers' return to the game was questionable due to a knee injury. If Green Bay had scored a touchdown, they would've won either way.

After the Bears tacked on a fourth-quarter field goal, Aaron Rodgers completed the Packers' comeback by hitting Randall Cobb with a 75-yard catch and run for a TD late in the fourth quarter.


According to ESPN's Rob Demovsky, it was the same knee Rodgers suffered a torn ACL with in high school at Pleasant Valley.

Trubisky continued the momentum after halftime, leading the Bears on a 60-yard drive that led to a 33-yard Parkey field goal that made it 20-0. On the next drive, the quarterback churned up 60 yards in nine plays as Cody Parkey finished the drive with a field goal to make it 10-0.
