With Mack well on his way to his second NFL Defensive MVP Award before he'd completed his first half as a Bear, Hicks, Robertson-Harris, Eddie Goldman, Danny Trevathan and rookie Roquan Smith all chipped in plays to show how special this Bears defense is eventually going to be. Not only did Mack sack the quarterback once, he also picked DeShone Kizer off and cashed it in for a 27-yard touchdown. Surely this kind of scenario couldn't play out for the Bears against a traditionally stout Packers team on their home field?

More importantly: In their last 20 meetings with the Packers, the Bears have only won three times.

The first half of the Bears-Packers game has been an absolute disaster for Jon Gruden and the Raiders.

The new offense led by Mitchell Trubisky started things off the right way as they debuted a number of different formations over a ten-play, 86 yard drive. The Bears, with help from newcomer Khalil Mack, pressured the All-Pro early and often.

After running 19 plays for 146 yards in the first quarter, the Bears managed just six yards on 10 plays in the second quarter.

Mack and the Bears defense have absolutely tormented the Packers for the first 30 minutes of game action.

After the Bears widened the margin to 23-17 on Parkey's 32-yard field goal with 2:39 to play, Rodgers threw a short pass over the middle to Randall Cobb, who raced 75 yards for the winning touchdown with 2:13 remaining. But still, on one leg, he was still Aaron Rodgers and he put together a few magnificent drives to get Green Bay back in the game. Then Rodgers trotted back on the field.

After the Bears offered one of those three and outs following the fumble, Mack left nothing to doubt intercepting Kizer thanks to a huge rush from Roy Robertson-Harris and taking it to the end zone for a 17-0 lead. The initially turned it over on downs but were saved when Clay Matthews was called for a late hit on the quarterback to extend the drive.
