"We played well, got off the field, got penalties to get back on the field and got off the field to win the game". But having to settle for field goals on three of four red-zone possessions ultimately cost them the opportunity to put the game away.

Down 10-0 when Rodgers hobbled off the field in the second quarter after Chicago Bears defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris fell on his left knee, and down 20-0 when he returned to start the second half, the Packers saw their fortunes turn when Lambeau public address announcer Bill Jartz exclaimed: "Aaron Rodgers at quarterback". He rather obviously favored his knee and limped around. The Packers were trailing 20-0.

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

"You know we talked about finishing and we didn't do that", Nagy said.

Dickerson covers the Chicago Bears for ESPN's NFL Nation. Only three players have done all of that in an National Football League game since 2000. While it wasn't a win, the Cleveland faithful can be proud that their team didn't lose for the first time in nearly two years.

Mack was everywhere, it seemed, as the Bears knocked Rodgers from the game. No other player on the Packers roster produced more than 25 receiving yards. We did the tests.

Which is what he did.

He finished 20 of 30 for 286 yards, including 17 of 23 for 273 yards in the second half. Even more agonizing for the Bears, cornerback Kyle Fuller just had dropped what would have been an outcome-sealing interception.

"Just doing what we got to do to come out with a win and fixing the things that we weren't great at today", he said. "We gave up six". "It would have had to take something really catastrophic injury wise to keep me out of the second half". I was disappointed with the field goal. "He was feeling well, making plays and making big-time plays". "We're paid to deal with injuries and play through 'em". The biggest concern over his career has been his inability to catch, however against the Packers, he was a factor as a receiver, catching five passes. "It was pretty special". Rodgers demonstrated once more than having an otherworldly quarterback is more important than anything else. What happened next might go down in Packers' lore as the "Cart Comeback" game. They are 6-11-1 in games he has not started since the beginning of the 2008 season.

"I felt like once I got back out there, when the adrenaline was going, it loosened up a little bit", Rodgers said.

He's back, and he vowed late Sunday night that he's staying.

The Detroit Lions didn't play on opening Sunday, but Detroit's three NFC North foes all took the field.

What a selfish, me-first hold out player.
