Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (12) celebrates after beating the Chicago Bears at Lambeau Field.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers launches a 39-yard touchdown pass to WR Geronimo Allison Sunday night against the Chicago Bears. And now that the Bears have given Mack a six-year, $141 million extension, he'll be seeing a lot of the Packers over the coming years - twice a year, in fact, with the job of hunting down Aaron Rodgers.

The Chicago Bears almost had a superb upset to start the 2018 National Football League season against the rival Green Bay Packers, which was fueled by recently-acquired star Khalil Mack.

GREEN BAY- Here are three thoughts from the Packers' improbable 24-23 comeback win over the Bears on Sunday night.

Khalil Mack dominated while Mitchell Trubisky ran Matt Nagy's offense to perfection, and Chicago took a 17-0 lead into halftime.

Mack finished the game with three total tackles - two solo - the sack and fumble recovery.

Remember when it was 20-0 in favor of Khalil Mack and the Bears?

He returned for the Packers' first drive of the third quarter, with 9:10 left. The Bears were more than willing to pay the price, but they also got a little back, too. He had two opportunities to win the game in the final minutes after outside linebacker Clay Matthews' terrible roughing-the-passer penalty.

Many experts favour Green Bay to make the most of home field advantage and take the victory when the teams meet in this NFC North rival match. But as this touchdown pass will show, there's nothing wrong with his arm. "When we held them to a field goal and it was 23-17 and we were getting the ball back with 2:30, I felt pretty confident we were going to win the game".

Miami led 7-3 when the game was suspended for almost two hours late in the first half.

Rodgers said he would undergo additional tests on Monday, but "as long as there are no major issues, I'll keep playing".

Trubisky completed 8 of 9 passes for 99 yards to five different receivers on the two scoring drives, including passes of 33 yards to Allen Robinson II and 31 yards to Taylor Gabriel. "Making big-time plays", Nagy said.
