Packers unsure of Rodgers' status for Week 2

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

What we do know is that Gruden was given $100 million to turn the Raiders back into a Super Bowl contender and this is our first real glimpse of his team.

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

After Rodgers' injury against the Bears, the Packers were down to DeShone Kizer as the only available quarterback. He closed the game with four consecutive scoring drives, completing the largest fourth-quarter comeback (17 points) in franchise history.

Rodgers, who injured his knee in the first off, got carted off, proceeded to re-enter the game and led the Packers to an epic comeback win. She held her hand over her mouth as Rodgers sliced up the Bears secondary, ultimately throwing a game-winning pass to Randal Cobb for a 75-yard touchdown.

He finished with 286 yards passing and three touchdowns.

Jon Gruden said at his introductory press conference way back in January that he just wanted to coach football.


"Obviously, Khalil Mack didn't want to play here", Gruden said.

Rodgers missed nine games last season due to a collarbone injury.

That's what we said in the huddle: 'We've got to make some plays.' [Allison] had a great catch. QB Mitchell Trubisky then found WR Taylor Gabriel for a 31-yard completion to the Green Bay 25, and on third-and-2, TE Trey Burton hauled in a 15-yard pass to make it first-and-goal.

The focus this week will be on the health of Rodgers ahead of a tough contest against the Minnesota Vikings.

It's going to take a long time to get over the Chicago Bears' loss to Green Bay in Week 1.

However, to the surprise of many - and in a testament to his bloody-mindedness - he returned to the sidelines for the second-half and appeared to be ready to play. "I know Aaron wants to play and is driven to play". Rodgers took control of the Packers' offense with 10:13 remaining in the first half. "We'll do tests [Monday], and you'll get a better answer Wednesday when I talk".
