Mack was officially credited with three total tackles and one additional quarterback hurry. You've got to tip your cap to him. "Something we can definitely learn from". This time around, the Bears let Cobb make a catch in the middle of the field and split the defense for the go-ahead score.
"We know we are close", quarterback Mitchell Trubisky said after the Packers erased a 20-3 fourth-quarter deficit to stun the Bears 24-23 in Green Bay.
"We talked about finishing", Nagy said, "and we didn't do that...."
But the All-Pro was able to shake off a left knee injury he suffered in the first half of Sunday night's game against the Chicago Bears and return to the field in the third quarter. He sat out nine games during the 2017 season due to a broken collarbone. They spent the week determining his conditioning level and formulating a plan from there. Vic Fangio and Chicago's defense had it all their way. He was doing well, he's feeling good, making plays. He was held later in the drive on a play that forced the Packers to punt.
The injury happened in the second quarter when Rodgers stayed down after a sack.
After that, it was Mack and the defense that took center stage. All three touchdowns came in the fourth quarter.
The Bears then surrounded him and pretended to make it rain dollar bills in a salute to their new big-money man.
The Packers were down 20-0 at halftime and without injured star quarterback Aaron Rodgers for part of the game before a somewhat hobbled Rodgers rallied his team past the Bears. The debut of Mack was spoiled with a crushing loss.
"I love the game", Mack said.
So, when he made a decision to bench his starters, it should have come off that he saw what he wanted to see in those sessions, without tape on what is going on.
Bears: The Bears played a near-perfect first half which gave them a chance to win the game, however, it was not to be as multiple errors and a dropped interception cost the Bears late.
