Green Bay Packers vs. Chicago Bears

Green Bay Packers vs. Chicago Bears

The offense was versatile, explosive, exciting and productive as Matt Nagy took his bag of tricks he'd been hiding throughout the preseason and dumped it out all over Lambeau Field. 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.

As a unit, however, the Bears' defense lacked finish.

"Walking out (for) the second half", Rodgers said when asked when he knew the Packers would win.

Thank you for joining us. "We've got to put more pressure on the quarterback".

Khalil Mack got off to a rousing start with the Chicago Bears.

The Packers came out of the locker room with Aaron Rodgers back under center, went to their no-huddle offense and quickly began to wear the Bears pass rush out.

Then Rodgers returned, and the Packers' defence held the Bears in check.

Mack said he wasn't shocked to see Rodgers return.

Rodgers tossed scoring passes of 39 yards to Geronimo Allison with 13:59 remaining and 12 yards to Devante Adams with 9:01 left to make it 20-17. Almost all of that came in the second half. Rodgers returned in the third quarter and led the Packers on their first scoring drive, which ended with Mason Crosby's 42-yard field goal to cut it to 20-3.

"He looked like he was hurting a little bit, " Mack said. Nagy asked rhetorically. "So, we get it". Green Bay's offensive line adjusted in the second half and did a better job shutting Mack down.

Overall, it still was a great debut for Mack.

When it was clear Mack was available from the Oakland Raiders last week for the right price - two first-round selections - the first team that came to many folks' minds as a possible landing spot was the Packers.

Aaron Rodgers has struggled with injuries in the past, going down in Week 6 last season with a shoulder injury that required surgery.

On the flip side, Chicago certainly put up a fight with defensive lineman Khalil Mack tallying up a sack, a force fumble, a fumble recovery, an interception, and a touchdown all before halftime. It was Smith's first play in the National Football League, too.
