GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- The Packers looked to be down and out after the first half, down 17 nothing and not knowing if their starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers would take the field again.Luckily for them,12 would play the final 30 minutes, but this team preaching adversity as they get a hard fought win number one.
"Yeah I mean I don't think that looked like a win for a good portion of that 60 minutes, but it's important, division game, home game," said quarterback Aaron Rodgers. "Belief in each other is so very important to sustaining success and when you get the crowd going and the defense starts believing, that lead is shrinking, they realize we get a couple stops here this thing could be over in our favor."
"The energy I feel like wasn't as there in the beginning and I think we had a good plan in place and everybody wanted to get this win," said linebacker Nick Perry who recorded the strip sack to end the Bears final offensive drive. "It's Sunday night, everybody's excited about this game. I think we pushed through adversity, that's the biggest thing we did out there today."
"I was just saying to a few of the guys, the rest of the season is going to be boring at this point, we started off like this, but it's a good problem to have," said wide receiver Davante Adams. "I've been saying this since I was a rookie, all we need is time and downs and we'll be able to make something happen. We got the best quarterback in the game, the best wide receiver core in the game and I really mean that, I really feel that way and trust my guys and have a lot of faith in them and you see why."
