Aaron Rodgers is good to go next week

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

Sunday marked the first time in franchise history that the Packers won after trailing by 17-plus points entering the fourth quarter, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Bears QB Mitch Trubisky fires a pass against the Packers in Week 1. "But then it tightened up there in the fourth quarter".

With the Lambeau Field crowd back in the game, Trubisky and the Bears were able to convert three third downs and got down to the Packers' 14-yard line before having to settle for another Parkey field goal to make it 26 20. He threw three touchdown passes - one each to Geronimo Allison, Davante Adams and Randall Cobb - to dig the Packers out of a massive hole.

Bears pass rusher Khalil Mack, not Rodgers, was the best player on the field in the first half.

"I just felt something in it", Rodgers said.

Gruden also said that he wants players "that want to help put this thing into high gear". Akiem Hicks lessened any fear about his extension by using the space afforded by Mack by simply driving himself through the center of the Green Bay Packers' line whenever he damn pleased.

"We do have some information and no decision has been made". Clearly that game will be remembered for what Aaron Rodgers did, but the score could have gotten truly out of hand without Pettine's unit playing like it did. The Raiders are coming off a hard to understand offseason that ended with a devastating trade that saw their best player, Khalil Mack, head to Chicago while the Rams are coming off an incredible offseason that ended with them signing their best player, Aaron Donald, to a mega contract. He has also thrown for 24 touchdowns and just one interception in his last nine starts versus the Bears, including seven TDs and no picks in his last two games.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy took the podium for his usual Monday media availability and wasn't almost as sure about his quarterback's status for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings. After two first downs, Rodgers had eclipsed his total first-half stats.

"I told the guys at halftime, I said, 'If you shut 'em out, we're gonna win, ' " Rodgers said.
