Rodgers returns from injury, Packers beat Bears 24-23

  • Packers make WR Trevor Davis LB Oren Burks inactive vs. Bears

"But then it tightened up there in the fourth quarter". That included sitting out a Week 16 loss to the Vikings at Lambeau Field. The comeback was extra special because of just how deeply Packers fans had fallen into a pit of despair before their spirits soared sky-high when Rodgers started painting a second-half masterpiece. What happened next might go down in Packers' lore as the "Cart Comeback" game. Again, it looked pretty grim - until it didn't.

Green Bay rallied back from the 20-point halftime deficit to defeat Chicago 24-23.

It was Rodgers' first regular-season game back at Lambeau Field since last September against the Bears. "It would have had to take something really catastrophic injury-wise to keep me off the field in the second half". Surely this kind of scenario couldn't play out for the Bears against a traditionally stout Packers team on their home field? "I know Aaron wants to play, and is always driven to play, but that's all I have for you right now". "I just had a feeing that we could spark it and get things going if we put together a couple drives". The Vikings defense will be every bit as menacing as the Khalil Mack-led Bears were on Sunday night and then some.

Allison doesn't have to be a Pro Bowler this year. His performance was worthy of the heavy price tag that came with his six-year, $141 million contract.

Wednesday's news of Thomas reporting to his current team might well lead to both sides considering it a stalemate. He addressed his absence from the team in an Instagram post on Wednesday.

Boyle, an undrafted rookie who played at CT (where he threw one touchdown and 13 interceptions in three seasons) and Eastern Kentucky (11 touchdowns and 13 interceptions in his lone season), was a long shot to make the Packers when training camp opened.

With limited mobility, Rodgers operated a no-huddle offense in the second half that kept him in the pocket.

He started quietly, getting 42 yards on his first drive back to set up Mason Crosby's 42-yard field goal to get the Packers on the board.

But Boyle isn't like most people in Green Bay.
