Aaron Rodgers continues to surprise us all.

The Green Bay Packers were losing at home 20-0 to the team they've long tormented, the Chicago Bears, and hope was faint at best. Going 20-for-30, Rodger threw for 286 yards and three touchdowns.

Part of what endeared former Packers quarterback Brett Favre to his teammates was his willingness to play hurt - and play at a high level in the process. But, all of that was erased in the second half when Nagy didn't go for the jugular with the chance to put the game away on fourth down in the fourth quarter.

Mack finished with three tackles, while also being credited for a pass-deflection to go with his sack, forced fumble and interception.

The last of the scores was a 75-yard touchdown to receiver Randall Cobb with 2:13 left in the game.

Not again: Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers continued his domination of the Bears. Until then, relive tonight's madness with the top reactions of the night by way of your trusty Twitter community. Rodgers wasn't sacked in the second half, and he was barely pressured, either, thanks to the get-it-out-quick gameplan.

"I just told him I've got to be in the pistol or the shotgun and not go under center", Rodgers said. "It stings", coach Matt Nagy said after his Bears debut.

Mack said he wasn't shocked to see Rodgers return.

The Bears came into this game planning to have Mack limit his workload after missing the entire preseason in a holdout with the Raiders. Khalil Mack and the Bears defense dominated the first half, with new acquisition Mack scoring a TD on a pick-six a drive after stealing the ball from backup QB DeShone Kizer like taking candy from a baby. "I wanted to come back and make an impact". "You want to come out and win these games and that's the only thing that matters".

"I'm playing next week", Rodgers said as a very full night came to a close. They were only able to tack on a field goal during their one third-quarter possession. We're going to relive this nightmare and take a look at the biggest surprises from Sunday night's disaster.
