5 takeaways from Bears' stunning Week 1 loss to Packers

Packers to face LBs Khalil Mack Roquan Smith for 20-30 plays vs. Bears

Defensive end Akiem Hicks was triple-teamed, and broke free to sack Rodgers and force a fumble.

The Packers quickly drove down the field upon Rodgers' reentry Sunday night to lead the Packers to a field goal and trim Green Bay's deficit to 17.

"I prepared all offseason for the first game of the season and I wanted to. make an impact", Mack said.

If you're unable to get in front of a TV, Sky Sports customers are able to watch the game live via Sky Go. That's the only thing on my mind. He was everything the Bears hoped he'd be after acquiring him from the Raiders in a deal centered on two first-round picks. He had a strip-sack that led to another turnover.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -The Chicago Bears are off to a fast start and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has gone into the locker room.

Bears kicker Cody Parkey made a 26-yard field goal to open the second quarter with a 10-0 Bears lead.

This from a player who missed the entire preseason. "It stings", coach Matt Nagy said after his Bears debut.

The Geronimo Allison drive - four catches including a 39-yarder for a touchdown - made it a game. At some points, he would play an entire series. It's a look we've seen before from Fuller. It included a record $102 million guaranteed, making Rodgers the highest-paid player in National Football League history. Up 20-17, Nagy called for a passing play on third down and a field goal on fourth.

The defense will get a lot of the blame for this.

In the end, though, none of Mack's exploits mattered, as the Packers, behind Rodgers' heroics, pulled off a 24-23 come-from-behind victory after being held scoreless by Chicago in the first half.

Aaron Rodgers heard the applause after walking out of the stadium tunnel and back on to the field. "We wanted to slow them down, a little bit, let (right tackle Bryan Bulaga) get settled and he did, and did a good job". It didn't matter that the Bears still had 2:13 and two timeouts left or that Clay Matthews threw a lifeline with a fourth-down roughing the passer flag. In the past seven meetings against the Bears, Rodgers' ratio is 21-1 and the Packers have won six of those games. 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. "We had to get adjusted and I think that first couple drives we were trying to do too much".
