Green Bay trailed 20-3 to start the fourth quarter but rallied to beat the Chicago Bears, 24-23. However, I was wrong, and Rodgers returned for the second half but had to wait for nearly six minutes before he could take the field.
Derek Carr has largely been an afterthought for fantasy after struggling in 2017, but he was considered one of the best young quarterbacks in the game at this time previous year.
Packers quarterback Rodgers, who signed the richest contract in National Football League history just before the start of the season, left the game in the second quarter as the Bears dominated to lead 17-0 at half-time. Then Rodgers completed the comeback as he found a wide open Cobb over the middle, who raced downfield for a 75-yard touchdown to give Green Bay the one-point lead.
Nagy on Monday did rue an earlier play call, admitting that a running play probably would've been the best approach on third-and-1 at the Bears' 34-yard line with 12:46 remaining and Chicago leading 20-10. On his second drive, under pressure, Kizer floated a short pass that Bears LB Khalil Mack picked off and returned 27 yards for a score, and the Bears led 17-0 with 39 seconds left in the half.

Here's a look at what was said about the 2016 Defensive Player of the Year's first game with his new team.
"We're still collecting all the information on his specific situation", McCarthy told reporters.
The Packers had to make a similar adjustment late in the 2014 season, when Rodgers was hobbled by a calf injury. 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. "DeShone and I are with him a lot in the [indoor practice field] making sure we know the game plan and we're comfortable with it".
There is a very delicate balance for McCarthy to find in play-calling, and I don't want to make it sound obvious or easy.
