In just the first two quarters of Sunday night's game between the Bears and the Green Bay Packers, Mack was able to put together a terrifying stat line that surely made Raiders fans get angrier at their team's management.
Chicago Bears fans across the country were stunned Sunday night as Aaron Rodgers pulled off arguably the greatest comeback of his National Football League career.
It was Rodgers' first regular-season game back at Lambeau Field since last September against the Bears. New No. 2 QB DeShone Kizer took over on the next series for Rodgers, who was sacked twice and pressured consistently with the Bears defensive front winning the battle up front.
The Packers quickly drove down the field upon Rodgers' reentry Sunday night to lead the Packers to a field goal and trim Green Bay's deficit to 17.
Mack didn't start the game, but entered after four plays.
Edge defender Khalil Mack was dominant at times, especially in the first half when he recorded several pressures, topping it off with a strip sack fumble and interception return for a touchdown. After his return, he went 17-for-23, 273 yards, three touchdowns and improved to a 130.7 passer rating.
Fuller has intermixed brilliant play (first quarter of his rookie season and virtually all of last year) with a disastrous sophomore season and injury-marred lost 2016.
But Rodgers wasn't sacked in the second half, and Pettine's unit allowed merely two second-half field goals.
"I prepared all off-season for the first game of the season and I wanted to ... make an impact", Mack said. He also found Davante Adams and Geronimo Allison for touchdown passes. However, the Bears got conservative. He broke Prince Amukamara's ankles and scored from 12 yards out after making a short catch, faking inside and breaking it back outside, but only after he completed a spinning catch for 51 yards three plays earlier.
