Aaron Rodgers to try to come back

NFL notebook: Rodgers leaves with leg injury

NFL notebook: Rodgers leaves with leg injury

Two plays later, Randall Cobb caught it, an Aaron Rodgers pass over the middle, which he weaved 75 yards with down the field for the game-winning touchdown.

Rodgers was hurt in the second quarter of Sunday's game after being sacked, limping to the sidelines before being carted to the locker room.

So with his teammates heading back onto the field, the question about Rodgers still hung in the air: Would he even try? The offense seemed to play more conservatively in the second half with mostly short passes, including one questionable third-and-two throw with 2:47 left and the Packers without a timeout.

Make it five straight losses for the Bears to their NFC North archrivals after a 24-23 defeat to Green Bay on Sunday night.

B | Jordan Howard (15 carries, 82 yards) almost finished off the Packers late in the fourth quarter, breaking off 16- and 11-yard runs. "I just felt something in it".

On their second possession of the game, the Bears went 60 yards in nine plays but settled for Parkey's 26-yard field goal on the first play of the second quarter and a 10-0 lead. We all know how effective Rodgers can be when he moves around, but it was happening too much. "I just had a feeing that we could spark it and get things going if we put together a couple drives".

Hot in pursuit of Trubisky scrambling out of the pocket, Matthews made contact with the Bears quarterback shortly after he threw what turned out to be an incomplete pass intended for Taylor Gabriel downfield. They took their first drive right down the field and were up 20-0 early into the third quarter. At the time, with Chicago owning the scoreboard and the momentum, it was the kind of game-changing play worth his $90 million contract. Mack's impact on the game wasn't close to what it was in the first half.

DeShone Kizer took over under center for the Packers.

But it would be stunning to think Rodgers wouldn't want to get after it next week, even against the team that in essence ended his season a year ago and won the division at Green Bay's expense.

Oh, and one of those incompletions came on a throwaway to run out the clock at the end of the game.

"I ain't seen nothing like that", said veteran tight end Marcedes Lewis, who signed with the Packers in the offseason. On their second, they looked capable.
