Rodgers held the back of his left knee in pain before being carted into the locker room.

The Packers posted the second-largest comeback in franchise history at Lambeau Field, behind only a rally from 21 points down to beat New Orleans on September 17, 1989.

He returned in the second half to lead the Green Bay Packers to a thrilling comeback victory and declared himself fine for Week 2.

Rodgers didn't have full mobility against the Bears, but Kearse said that didn't matter. But late in the game, he missed and/or rushed some throws and looked like a different quarterback. He was hobbling a bit, but seized control with his second-half performance, completing 17 of 23 passes for 273 yards and three touchdowns. "It was 20-0, and as soon as he gets (back) in, it changes the whole entire game".

"We're still collecting all the information", McCarthy said.

Zimmer said he hadn't seen Rodgers' postgame declaration, cracking, "I don't have a TV, so I didn't watch it".

Saying that, back-up James Connor ran for 135 yards and scored two touchdowns so maybe Bell's plan will backfire if the Steelers feel they can get just as much production out of Connor - this story will run and run.

"When I got the ovation, at that point, I said, 'We might as well win this thing, '" Rodgers recounted. Not only were they two scores down, but Aaron Rodgers had to leave the field due to a knee injury.

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.

"(I was thinking) something special", he said. Rodgers took control of the Packers' offense with 10:13 remaining in the first half. But you know again, I think we can take some good out of that game.
