Raiders coach Jon Gruden: 'Obviously, Khalil Mack didn't want to be here'

Nagy and Vic Fangio deserve credit for calling a masterful first half that put the Packers all the way back against the wall. Like noted in the disclaimer before this stock report, this is all relatively new to Trubisky, and he will look more comfortable in the system, but it was tough optics for the Bears franchise quarterback in game one.

But seeing Mack almost chase down receiver Randall Cobb on his 75-yard touchdown stood out to Staley. Four plays is all they need to get into the end zone, finished off by Todd Gurley's 19-yard scamper to pay dirt. On the following drive, Mack got on the board for the first time as a Bear as he intercepted Kizer, who was under heavy pressure from Robertson-Harris, and returned it 27 yards for the touchdown to make it 17-0.

We saw what Mack did for the Bears on Sunday night, but just imagine what he could do if on the same front as Donald, Suh and Michael Brockers.

"I don't know", Zimmer said about the injury and the game.

Zimmer said he hadn't seen Rodgers' postgame declaration, cracking, "I don't have a TV, so I didn't watch it". Green Bay fell into a familiar and frustrating pattern early on, with Rodgers holding on to the ball while his receivers failed to sufficiently separate from their matchups (more on this later).

It's going to take a long time to get over the Chicago Bears' loss to Green Bay in Week 1.

Barack Obama: "How hard can that be, saying that Nazis are bad?"
"If we don't step up, things can get worse", the former president told the audience at the Anaheim Convention Center. And the other comments Obama made at a Democratic rally in California didn't appear to impress Pirro either.

WH official says Trump gave no order on op-ed
Advisers to President Donald Trump entertained the idea, briefly discussing it among themselves, according to the Times . A book by journalist Bob Woodward and an anonymous New York Times opinion piece , Trump has said, are fiction and lies.

"We're still collecting all the information", McCarthy told reporters in Green Bay.

"Obviously, Khalil Mack didn't want to play here".

Now, even though Aaron Rodgers said he's planning on playing Week 2 against the Vikings, head coach Mike McCarthy has made it clear nothing is set in stone right now.

Last Thursday night's National Football League season opener between the Philadelphia Eagles and Atlanta Falcons fell 8 percent in the ratings compared to last season's first game, according to Nielsen data (per The Wrap). After two first downs, Rodgers had eclipsed his total first-half stats.

"When they got the ball back with like three minutes left (in the game), everybody in the house was like, 'Oh, he's definitely going to come back and get the W, '" Kearse said of watching the game on television.
