Aaron Rodgers is good to go next week

Rodgers injured his knee midway through the second quarter after going down on a sack.

It was the first time in franchise history that the Packers won after trailing by 17 points or more entering the fourth quarter, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

His night was presumed over, but Rodgers returned after halftime and led Green Bay to an improbable comeback win.

Third-year wide receiver Geronimo Allison was the star of the series that made the comeback possibilities feel real in the 24-23 victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday night.

The Bears came out and earned their first 10-point lead over the Packers since 2007, with Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky looking sharp. The throw was ideal, and Allison's diving catch in the back of the end zone cut Green Bay's deficit to 20-10.

The Browns famously went 0-16 last season but it seemed their luck had finally turned when they overturned a 21-7 fourth-quarter deficit to force overtime, and then saw the Steelers miss a game-winning kick, only for TJ Watt to block Zane Gonzalez's effort with eight seconds left.

"We're still collecting all the information", McCarthy told reporters in Green Bay.




We'll hear from Aaron Rodgers on Wednesday.

It was a game fitting for the Green Bay Packers' 100th season opener. His career high numbers speak for themselves, and we all got a little reminder that he and Rodgers have been working together for a long, long time.

Over that span, we've seen numerous players hold out before their rookie deals expired in an attempt take back some of their leverage. "I know Aaron wants to play and is always driven to play, but that's all I have for right now".

He simply wanted to be paid like one of the best players in the game.

The Bears settled for field goals after failing to convert on third-and-goal from the 3, third-and-nine at the 15 and third-and-two at the 14. He added 32 yards and a rushing touchdown on the ground. But they're not touchdowns.

The "New" Playbook: With all that transpired Sunday night, it can be easy to forget that the Packers' offense was pretty gross early on.
