Jon Gruden throws all the blame on Khalil Mack

NFC North watch what happened with the Lions divisional foes in Week 1

The hobbling two-time NFL MVP threw three touchdown passes in the second half after returning from injury, and the Green Bay Packers overcame a 20-point deficit for a thrilling 24-23 win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday night. There were problems stopping the run, mobile quarterbacks still seem to pick up first downs easily and the only turnover generated was in the game's final seconds. We can't talk about it. We're gonna learn from it, and it's my job as a head coach to make sure they learn from it. "I was having a hard time putting weight on it".

"When I got the ovation, at that point, I said, 'We might as well win this thing, '" Rodgers recounted. It's not going to be rosy the whole time - it's not.

"This will definitely go down as one my favorite memories, especially in this rivalry", Rodgers said.

A lot of that will depend on how QB Mitch Trubisky responds. "We did a good job mixing things up in the second half with some of our quicker-hitter stuff and actually some vertical stuff, too".

Buccaneers quarterback Fitzpatrick became just the second player in history to record 400 passing yards, four TD passes, no interceptions and also run in for a touchdown himself. "I know Aaron wants to play and is driven to play, but that's all I have right now".

After the hot start, or accurate start anyway, Trubisky completed only 5 of 14 passes for 29 yards. He never showed up for training camp, and it was obvious he wasn't going to show up for the season.

There were rushed throws on the final possession when the Bears needed a field goal to go ahead.

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

Nagy and Vic Fangio deserve credit for calling a masterful first half that put the Packers all the way back against the wall.

Veteran Adrian Peterson only got a job in Washington after their top draft pick was injured, but he showed he's still got it with a 96-yard game that saw him enter the top 10 of the all-time rushing list.

Later Rodgers said his playing status would be more clear later in the week. He pretty much stays the course, and you have to be that way as a corner. Then Rodgers trotted back on the field. Kyle played that about as well as he could.
