Was it the lack of the entire team's preparation in the exhibition slate that allowed the Packers to dominate the second half, storming back from a 20-0 deficit to lead, 24-23, with three minutes to play? Then Rodgers trotted back on the field.
The Bears converted a respectable 41 percent of their third downs, but they settled for field goals after having drives bog down at the Packers' 8-, 15- and 14-yard lines.
This one is going to sting terribly for the next eight days until they take the field again next Monday night against Seattle. Wide receiver Allen Robinson had his first two catches in a Bears uniform on the drive, for 33 and 13 yards.
Rodgers left the field on the front seat of a cart in the second quarter with a knee injury.

Khalil Mack dominated while Mitchell Trubisky ran Matt Nagy's offense to perfection, and Chicago took a 17-0 lead into halftime. It was the second turnover Mack forced in the second quarter. The struggles and lack of cohesion shared by the starting group was obvious through the first half prior to Rodgers' injury.
Rodgers injured his knee midway through the second quarter after going down on a sack. He has thrown an interception returned for a 27-yard touchdown by Bears linebacker Khalil Mack.
Kyle Fuller couldn't have had much tighter coverage on Geronimo Allison on this one. Rodgers sandwiched two short passes to Randall Cobb around a double move to Adams that went for 51 yards. Both times cornerback Prince Amukamara was in coverage.
After Rodgers was flagged for intentional grounding with 1:52 left in the third quarter, the Bears had a 98.2 percent chance to win the game, according to win probability. Remember when the narrative on Rodgers was that he could put up incredible stats and win games, but he couldn't lead comebacks?
On their first drive of the game, the Bears offense looked effective and modern. "Raiders officials commented after trading Mack to Chicago roughly a week ago that they never came close to bridging the gap with Mack". A detour to 10 losses? "Just his command and, you know, him kind of just taking over and taking control and basically doing what he sees, it's insane".
