  • NFL notebook: Rodgers leaves with leg injury

Three second half scoring drives including 17 points in the fourth quarter will be the highlight.

Rodgers was hit in the backfield on a third-down play and struggled to get up, prompting trainers to bring him to the medical tent for evaluation.

While Packers fans feared the worst, Rodgers surprised nearly everyone by coming out on the sideline for the second half. Several Packers players agreed this was the loudest they've ever heard the crowd at Lambeau Field.

Rodgers' post-injury final totals were a stunning 17-of-23 for 273 yards and three touchdowns, including one emphatic chuck out of bounds to run out the final seconds. The 34-year-old managed to walk off the field with some assistance, but was carted from the sideline to the locker room shortly thereafter.

Mac Miller's home reportedly cleaned before cops could investigate
Mac Miller , born Malcolm James McCormick, was pronounced dead of an apparent overdose on Friday afternoon. Miller and singer Ariana Grande dated for two years, and she confirmed in May that the couple had split.

It was Green Bay's largest fourth-quarter comeback win in franchise history.

Allison completed a terrific reception on Rodgers' first touchdown pass, hauling in the ideal throw in the corner of the end zone with Kyle Fuller trailing in coverage.

All signs point to Mack, even without a training camp and still quite new to the Bears' defensive system, facing the Packers in Sunday night's season opener at Lambeau Field.

Rodgers attempted to get on his feet following a sack but crouched to the turf, grasping the back of his left leg. He missed nine games last season with a broken right collarbone, preceding Green Bay going 7-9 and missing the playoffs for the first time in nine seasons.

4 missing, 10 hurt after 2 boats collide, sink on Colorado River
Saturday when a northbound Hallet boat carrying 10 people collided with a southbound Sleekcraft with six aboard, officials said . The water carried all of them some distance down the river, some as far as three to five miles from the site of the collision.

Rodgers said he would undergo additional tests on Monday, but "as long as there are no major issues, I'll keep playing".

In the end, though, none of Mack's exploits mattered, as the Packers, behind Rodgers' heroics, pulled off a 24-23 come-from-behind victory after being held scoreless by Chicago in the first half.

Nagy deserves some criticism for failing to adjust down the stretch, but Vic Fangio's defense did the same and fell apart when they were needed most.

The go-ahead score was a 75-yard catch-and-run touchdown by Randall Cobb with 2:13 remaining.
