WinView Games Playbook: Rams vs. Raiders - Week 1

Rodgers made it clear after the thrilling comeback win last night he's planning on playing against the Vikes, the same team that ended his campaign last season. At that moment, how many Bears fans started thinking, "Wait, this isn't happening, is it?"

Several members of the training staff surrounded Rodgers on the field.

Rodgers' injury forced the Packers to get away from their conventional offense and.

Rodgers said in his postgame interview Sunday night on NBC that he would play vs. the Vikings, against whom he broke his collarbone a year ago.

"They would offer the first and third, get back Khalil Mack, pay him this year. and then after this year, knowing they could not afford him long-term, trade him and get back some of those draft picks", Schefter said on Monday Night Countdown. 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 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.

That's an absolutely foolish stance if we've ever seen one. Coaches across the league are placing receivers in bunches or stacks, using motion to prevent jams and generating simple reads and easy completions for their quarterbacks.

On the other hand, Rodgers is the closest thing to a football superhero that exists on planet Earth. Perhaps the biggest question is: How good is Brandin Cooks when he doesn't have a Hall-of-Fame caliber quarterback throwing him the ball? But those with sociopolitical agendas in mind would be hard-pressed to blame player protests for both drops, as "severe" weather caused significant delays last week and last night's SNF had stiff competition.

Nagy and Vic Fangio deserve credit for calling a masterful first half that put the Packers all the way back against the wall.

DeShone Kizer took over for Rodgers at QB. "I just started watching".

Kizer, who was acquired in the offseason in a trade with Cleveland, started 15 games past year for the winless Browns.

So, thank goodness for Aaron Rodgers.

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