Aaron Rodgers produced his second comeback from 20 points down to win, potentially the only quarterback to ever do so in regular season games in NFL history.

Exclusive pregame conversation with Mike McCarthy
"It's going to be a double whammy, especially for their defense against their offense...we expect a (lot of) gadgets...their defense vs. our offense, we do have some history with their scheme." - McCarthy #Packers— 620wtmj (@620wtmj) September 9, 2018
"They look good. You can see right away the way those guys look together...they've had a really productive training camp...those guys are definitely in sync." - McCarthy on Rodgers/Graham #Packers— 620wtmj (@620wtmj) September 9, 2018
"Our defense had a lot of confidence. I like the energy. The communication is where it needs to be." - McCarthy #Packers— 620wtmj (@620wtmj) September 9, 2018
"You have to like the way (Trubisky) plays. He can throw the football. He can make plays with his feet...a new offense for him." - McCarthy #Packers— 620wtmj (@620wtmj) September 10, 2018
The Green Bay Packers are again going after their 14th world championship, this time in their 100th season of professional football.
How appropriate that the Chicago Bears come to town.
But it's not exactly the same Bears whom the Packers will face tonight.
They have a new coach in Matt Nagy with a new offensive system for quarterback Mitch Trubisky to run.
Their defensive scheme won't change with Vic Fangio running that side of the ball, but their talent in the front seven is dramatically improved after the trade for Khalil Mack - a trade that brings a necessity to "win now," as Nagy put it, due to the jettisoning of two first round draft picks to Oakland for the 2016 defensive player of the year - and the drafting of Roquan Smith.
Of course, the Packers have a new-look receiving corps with the departure of Jordy Nelson, the addition of Jimmy Graham and a deep roster of young wideouts.
Also, consider the new scheme from old-and-new-again offensive coordinator Joe Philbin, and from new defensive coordinator Mike Pettine with an old-and-new-again cornerback in Tramon Williams helping the Packers adjust to it.
This will be a very different-looking contest.
Stay tuned. This 100th season will be a wild and fun ride.
