Chicago vs. Green Bay: Bears stun Packers on 1st drive

Mack joined the Bears last week after being acquired in a blockbuster trade with the Raiders, while Smith missed the entire preseason while dealing with a rookie contract impasse and then experiencing hamstring tightness a week after reporting. Last year's Packers were 24th in adjusted defensive DVOA, including an especially atrocious 27th against the pass.

With that said, the Colts ranked No. 28 in the National Football League last season in passing yards allowed per game, so this isn't the greatest measuring stick. It's hard not to be impressed by the Bears' defense so far.

- Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered what could be a potentially serious knee injury in the team's season opener against the Chicago Bears.

DeShone Kizer took over for Rodgers, as Packers fans everywhere hold their breath waiting for some more definitive information on their franchise quarterback.

Packers prevent the Bears from converting on 4th down.

One of the big changes for the Pack is the addition of Muhammad Wilkerson, the best five-technique in 2014 and '15 but mostly MIA the past two seasons. In year's past, Green Bay has been extremely one-sided and teams have left the box empty to stop Aaron Rodgers and the passing game. And that's wide receiver Jordy Nelson's absence.

"Just having me, Tarik, 12 (Allen Robinson), Jordan 'Ground and Proud.' The list - it gets long with playmakers we have here", said receiver Taylor Gabriel, who will play his first game for the Bears against the Packers. Randall Cobb remains risky out of the slot, even if his production has waned for a few seasons now.

Green Bay, on the other hand, is counting on the untested but exceptional talent of top draft picks Kevin King, Josh Jones, Jaire Alexander and Josh Jackson, and their young stud at safety, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. The Bears are opening their 99th season.

So what this likely will come down to - or back to - is Rodgers and Trubisky. He had six catches for 122 yards, and a 72-yard catch-and-run on third down in OT to set up a winning field goal in an early-season win against the Bengals.

The Bears do not take advantage of the fumble and punt.
