After witnessing what will easily go down as one of the most memorable moments in National Football League history, we came across a tweet about Aaron Rodgers that is so on point.

He returned in the second half to lead the Green Bay Packers to a thrilling comeback victory and declared himself fine for Week 2. What happened next might go down in Packers' lore as the "Cart Comeback" game.

"I told the guys at half-time, 'If you shut them out, we're going to win.' We gave up six, but I just had a feeling if we could spark it and get things going".

But Rodgers wasn't sacked in the second half, and Pettine's unit allowed merely two second-half field goals. They looked at him under the medical tent for a while before carting him back to the locker room. Backup DeShone Kizer replaced Rodgers on Green Bay's next drive.

The baby boy - Caspian Cyrus Cobb - is barely a month old. but little man's already got a piece of Packer history for the rest of his life.

"Just doing what we got to do to come out with a win and fixing the things that we weren't great at today", he said.

He was a difference-maker in his first game since the Bears acquired the outside linebacker last week in a trade with the Oakland Raiders. The Bears quickly matched the Packers' transition tender with a new four-year, $56-million deal. But as he showed against the Packers, it was well worth it.

It was night and day between the first- and second-half offenses of both teams.

The Packers picked up one first down on their opening drive and then were forced to punt. Green Bay was able to move with tempo. Only one. You can do whatever you want in the first three.
