Rodgers left for the locker room riding in the passenger seat of a cart. Again, it looked pretty grim - until it didn't.
Davante Adams then found a connection with Rodgers, taking a pass and going 51 yards downfield to set up his later touchdown reception from 12 yards out to make it 20-17. He was limited to seven games in 2017 because of a collarbone injury. "When I got the ovation, at that point, I said, 'We might as well win this thing'".
There's little the three-time Pro-Bowl linebacker didn't do. Allison made a diving catch in front of Bears cornerback Kyle Fuller in the back right corner of the end zone for the Packers' first touchdown of the night. And it also comes just weeks after the Packers signed Rodgers to a $134 million contract extension, making him the NFL's highest-paid player.

He led the Packers to the 9-yard line, but on third-and-goal, Khalil Mack sacked him and ripped the football away from him for a forced fumble and recovery.
It was night and day between the first- and second-half offenses of both teams. He completed his first two passes, both of which were quick hitters likely created to ensure the Bears' pass rush couldn't get to Rodgers.
Meanwhile, Rodgers had only one first-quarter completion, which tied for his fewest in the opening frame since 2014 in Week 17 where he had zero against the Lions.
