By Nick Freimuth Green Bay Packers fans could not believe their eyes at the 9:05 mark in the second quarter of Sunday Night Football. Number 12, hurt, again? It was the worst possible thing that could happen to the Green Bay Packers. Unable to get off under his own power, it looked bad. The leader of the Pack lost for the year, in consecutive seasons?
Trailing 20-0 in the third quarter after a dismal performance by backup DeShone Kizer, Aaron Rodgers gimped back onto the field. It was one of the loudest ovations of the night with 78,282 Packers fans at full voice. Rodgers quickly put up 17 points and had Green Bay down just three points with 9:01 left in the game.
After Chicago kicked a field goal to give the Bears a 23-17 lead with 2:42 left in the game, Rodgers had one more back breaker left in the arsenal. He connected with Randall Cobb for a 75-yard touchdown. The comeback may be one of the greatest in Lambeau Field history. Orchestrated by the game’s best quarterback on one leg. The 24-23 win will be one remembered for a very long time, and could be the start of something special in Titletown for the 100th season of Packers Football in Green Bay.
