To Beat Aaron Rodgers the Bears Must Check These Two Boxes

The Green Bay Packers just made quarterback Aaron Rodgers the NFL's highest-paid player with a four-year, $134 million mega-deal that, combined with the two years remaining on his existing contract, means he'll be paid approximately $176 million over the next six seasons.

A Chicago defense featuring newly acquired star linebacker Khalil Mack dominated until the third quarter.

Although the ending to the game was one for the history books, the beginning was far from it. "Give me that ball", James tweeted. Add that knee injury to the mix and things did not look good for the Packers.

My God, how could anybody hate Aaron Rodgers?

It was night and day between the first- and second-half offenses of both teams. "I realized I probably should jog to let Dr. McKenzie know I could do that".

Per CBS News , the Texas Rangers have taken over the investigation and have placed a manslaughter charge against Guyger on hold. Jean went home and called his grandmother in Saint Lucia; she taught it to him over the phone, from thousands of miles away.

"They were trying to get Mack on the field obviously as many plays as possible, which we figured".

We all know how effective Rodgers can be when he moves around, but it was happening too much. Then Rodgers trotted back on the field.

"Honestly, everybody is already used to it coming from No. 12", Packers running back Jamaal Williams said. But he still was great, as he threw a trio of fourth-quarter touchdown passes as the Packers overcame a 20-0 deficit to beat the Chicago Bears, 24-23.

The quarterback initially tried to get up, then went back down, and was attended to by trainers.

The last of the scores was a 75-yard touchdown to receiver Randall Cobb with 2:13 left in the game.

Beware, NFL: Eagles defense may have gotten even better
Only Philly fans could boo their team off the field in the first half of a game in which the team just raised a Super Bowl banner. But early in the second Nelson Agholor found Nick Foles for a 15-yard gain ahead of Ajayi's first touchdown.

"I just told him I've got to be in the pistol or the shotgun and not go under center", Rodgers said. "Just a tremendous performance". They marched 86 yards on 10 plays, capped by Trubisky's two-yard touchdown run. It's part of what makes him such a special player.

After that, it was Mack and the defense that took center stage.

When Rodgers lay on the turf in serious pain, wondering how bad his knee was, he said all he wanted to do was get off the field. "But at the same time, I want our guys, our team, to learn from this, and they will".

As with every offense in the National Football League, the quarterback is the backbone, but the Packers need to be able to at least stay in the game if Rodgers has to step out for a bit.

Your daddy lives in Green Bay. The result was Rodgers operating nearly exclusively a no-huddle two-minute offense with plenty of quick throws.

Theranos to shut down: Investors lose US$1B
But Theranos came under scrutiny after the Journal published articles questioning its claims. They also face allegations of wire fraud.

Not one of the 78,282 fans in seats in this game, not even likely the Bears fans whose hearts he had broken time and time again, would have questioned Rodgers' toughness had he not returned on this night.
