Bears LBs Khalil Mack, Roquan Smith Ready For Roles Against Packers

Adjust Comment Print

And the Green Bay Packers take on the Chicago Bears under the lights at Lambeau field to kick off the season.

Burks was listed as questionable with a shoulder injury sustained last month before the Packers' third preseason game in Oakland. Unfortunately, Robertson-Harris landed on Rodgers' left leg awkwardly, causing Rodgers to remain on the ground and receive medical attention.

Football is back and the first Sunday of football in 31 weeks had everything, from the predictable (the Ravens blasted the Bills), to the wholly unexpected (the Bucs hung 48 points on the Saints in New Orleans), to some of the sloppiest action you'll ever want to see.

Rodgers signed a contract extension during the last week of the Packers training camp after he missed seven games last season to injury.

Packers prevent the Bears from converting on 4th down.

The Bears complete a field goal to go up 20-0.

Kizer is sacked by Khailil Mack and fumbles. I love the connection specifically with Sanders (10 receptions, 135 yards, one touchdown), and I think Keenum will continue to post solid fantasy lines in the right matchups.

The Bears appear to have a clear advantage in the running game. "The more the mystery is what they're going to run on defense". That means we'll get to see Khalil Mack and the defense take the field for the start of the game. The game will also open up the 100th season in the history of the Packers.

That came in 2006 - the last time the Bears won the NFC Championship - as they knocked off their rivals at Lambeau Field 26-0. JK Scott's punt goes 39 yards.

The Packers finish the 1st Quarter with -3 yards. Khalil Mack made his debut on the fourth play of the game.

I'm sure they haven't shown a bunch in the preseason but we know what the defensive coordinator has done in the past so you just tried to be prepared as much as possible and expect to execute your plays correctly and make the defense adjust to us.
