The Chicago Bears' collapse in Week 1's devastating loss to the Green Bay Packers will sting for a while. To start the Packers' 100th season. He wouldn't go into specific details, but said he had switched up his technique, certain hand movements and set points to try to stop Mack.

The Packers posted the second-largest comeback in franchise history at Lambeau Field, behind only a rally from 21 points down to beat New Orleans on September 17, 1989.

"[We went] exclusively with the no-huddle there in the second half and the two-minute drive; it was just priceless", McCarthy said.

The Packers' defense, in new coordinator Mike Pettine's first game, held the Bears to two field goals in the second half.

And that's coming from someone who has played with Rodgers for his entire career. After he did so, Bears defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris sacked him and landed right on Rodgers' left knee.

"You've seen it time and time again". The Packers evaluated him in the blue medical tent before carting him back to the locker room. Rodgers went for 286 yards, three touchdowns and no picks.

That comeback was highlighted by a 75-yard touchdown pass to Randall Cobb that put the Packers up for good.

At the very least, the Bears" 20-0 lead becoming a 24-23 loss was one for "70s NBC detective Banacek's casebook, not so much a whodunit but a what-the ... and how? "I just had a feeing that we could spark it and get things going if we put together a couple drives".

There's little the three-time Pro-Bowl linebacker didn't do. Mack missed the sack by a hair, and Smith came up after to finish the job.

DeShone Kizer, who the Packers acquired via trade with the Cleveland Browns back in March, is the only other active quarterback on the roster. The Bears came out and earned their first 10-point lead over the Packers since 2007, with Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky looking sharp.

That pass from Rodgers to Cobb brought the house down in Green Bay and made an already memorable game even harder to forget. Only one. You can do whatever you want in the first three. "And we did a good job mixing things up in the second half with some of our quicker-hitter stuff and actually some of our more vertical stuff, too".

Rodgers said he did not believe McCarthy altered his playcalling upon his return. On Sunday night, Trubisky was able to show off his arm with a couple 30-yard bullets to receivers Taylor Gabriel and Allen Robinson.
