Jon Gruden throws all the blame on Khalil Mack

Jon Gruden throws all the blame on Khalil Mack

The comeback was extra special because of just how deeply Packers fans had fallen into a pit of despair before their spirits soared sky-high when Rodgers started painting a second-half masterpiece.

Rodgers told NBC's Michele Tafoya he planned on playing in Week 2 vs. Minnesota.

And while most had their eyes on the remarkable comeback of Packers' quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who returned to the game after an apparent knee injury, others had their eyes centered on his girlfriend Danica Patrick. 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. For him to get here seven days ago, take a full game plan and then apply it to really good opponent just shows you - to younger guys, whether it's offense or defense - what can be done. He never showed up for training camp, and it was obvious he wasn't going to show up for the season.

- Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio didn't go after the hobbled Rodgers with extra pressure much in the second half, one criticism of the Bears.

Also, the officer was not one of the people with Jean in a picture that has been circulating on social media, sources said. Thursday's shooting occurred after Guyger was returning home in uniform from a 12-hour shift, according to police.

"The same thing that's happening to him is going to happen to all of them and they should have had his back and they can never win a Super Bowl with that type of offensive line".

But ahead of the Raiders' first game of the season, head coach Jon Gruden had some choice words about Mack's holdout in Oakland.

Not again: Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers continued his domination of the Bears. What are the top three takeaways from the game?

It was a day of landmarks for Peterson who also scored his 100th rushing touchdown - putting him seventh in that particular list - and he looks like he'll get a few more this coming season for the Redskins. If McCarthy and Philbin schemed up too many half-field reads or predetermined plays, they'd be limiting the talent and big-play potential of one of the greatest to ever play the game. The Packers don't need to do anything until Wednesday when they have to release their injury report for Week 2 against the Vikings.
