Former NASCAR driver Danica Patrick, who is now dating star Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, reacted to his unbelievable win during Sunday Night Football on Sunday evening (September 9) against the Chicago Bears.
The Packers had never before overcome a 17-point fourth-quarter deficit in their 100-year history. Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck after admitting he suffered a second shoulder injury while snowboarding in Colorado.
Aaron Rodgers heard the applause after walking out of the stadium tunnel and back on to the field.
But as Packers fans feared the worst, Rodgers made a surprising return to the field in the second half.
Former Raiders defender Kirk Morrison tweeted a photo of former National Football League and current Arizona State coach Herm Edwards, using words from Edwards' infamous rant. The energy left the place, but when he came out after halftime there was a renewed hope. He was seen shaking his head when he finally made it onto the cart headed for the locker room.
Pittsburgh Steelers won't trade Le'Veon Bell or rescind RB's franchise tag
Despite his absence, the Steelers are confident moving forward with second-year rusher James Conner starting in Bell's place. The 23-year-old Conner was drafted by the Steelers in the third round of the 2017 National Football League draft.
If you didn't watch the game, Aaron got injured when a Chicago Bears defender fell on top of his knee. On the following drive, Rodgers delivered a strike to receiver Geronimo Allison, who beat Kyle Fuller to make a 39-yard touchdown catch to cut the lead to ten. "It would have had to take something really catastrophic injury wise to keep me out of the second half". They came after the Bears had a 20-3 lead.
"I'm really proud of our team", Rodgers said. He shared a tweet promising the team won't lose another game like Sunday night's debacle again.
There's little the three-time Pro-Bowl linebacker didn't do.
A Chicago defense featuring newly acquired star linebacker Khalil Mack dominated until the third quarter.
Mack's debut with the Bears defense inspired confidence for what could come during the six-year window in which he will earn up to $141 million. But as he showed against the Packers, it was well worth it.
A Bengals Defender Was Ejected After A Brutal Hit On Andrew Luck
I'll try to keep it in check, but I've also learned it's important to just let things go and let it happen. It was the labrum injury that required surgery and rehab and kept Luck out the 2017 season.
Mack finished the game with three total tackles - two solo - the sack and fumble recovery.
"You figure that into Green Bay's game", Hicks said. So there's that. One of the most impressive things about this is that Pettine had the success that he did with just three safeties; both Josh Jones and Raven Greene were inactive.
Down 10-0 to the Bears in the second quarter, Rodgers was sacked by a combination of Bears players on a third down attempt for the Packers.
Trubisky made a valiant effort, going 23-of-35 passing for 171 yards.
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. That doesn't mean he shouldn't roll out of the pocket and extend plays. But late in the game, he missed and/or rushed some throws and looked like a different quarterback.
Rodgers carted to locker room vs. Bears after knee injury
While we have to wait another week to celebrate a win, if this is as bad as it gets, it is going to get pretty good. Robertson-Harris was credited with the sack, and the play resulted in Rodgers leaving the game with a knee injury.
