–From a nightmare first half, to a dream finish – the Packers rally from down 20-0 to the Bears to win in the season opener at Lambeau Field Sunday night. Green Bay fell behind early, with the Bears moving the ball and scoring quickly, building their advantage to 17-0 at halftime and took their 20-0 lead with 9:14 left in the third. Aaron Rodgers, who left the game in the first half with a knee injury, was cleared to play and returned to engineer the comeback. The Packers QB threw for 286 yards and three touchdowns – all in the second half, including the go-ahead 75 yard touchdown pass to Randall Cobb with 2:13 left. Rodgers also connected with Geronimo Allison and Davante Adams for scores in the half.
