Jon Gruden: 'Khalil Mack didn't want to play here'


Rodgers injured his knee midway through the second quarter after going down on a sack.

No one would have predicted it would take the Packers into the first minute of the fourth quarter to score their first touchdown of 2018.

But as Packers fans feared the worst, Rodgers made a surprising return to the field in the second half. Defeating the Bears on a national stage in that fashion-with all those ups and downs-played out like a five-act work from Shakespeare. The two-time NFL MVP threw touchdown passes on three straight possessions in the fourth quarter to turn a 20-3 deficit into a 24-23 victory. Now, a day after Mack absolutely exploded in his Bears debut, it's time for the Raiders to spin how it all went down.

That's what we said in the huddle: 'We've got to make some plays.' [Allison] had a great catch.

We'll hear from Aaron Rodgers on Wednesday. His career high numbers speak for themselves, and we all got a little reminder that he and Rodgers have been working together for a long, long time. "We are paid to deal with injuries and play through them".

For Mickelson, this will be his record 12th Ryder Cup team, eclipsing the record of 11 he shared with Nick Faldo. He has not played, however, on a winning team in Europe, where the USA has not triumphed since 1993.

"Obviously, Khalil Mack didn't want to play here", Gruden said. Even with only one healthy knee, Rodgers insists he's playing next week.

Trubisky continued the momentum after halftime, leading the Bears on a 60-yard drive that led to a 33-yard Parkey field goal that made it 20-0. Gruden can spin it any way he wants, but the objective person will read right through said spin.

But Boyle isn't like most people in Green Bay. He added 32 yards and a rushing touchdown on the ground. Rodgers took control of the Packers' offense with 10:13 remaining in the first half.
