The Chicago Bears nearly had a superb upset to start the 2018 NFL season against the rival Green Bay Packers, which was fueled by recently-acquired star Khalil Mack. While the heroics of Aaron Rodgers spoiled Mack’s debut with the Bears, the young pass-rusher still had an incredible showing in the 24-23 loss.
Mack filled up the box score, totaling three tackles, one sack, one interception returned for a touchdown and one fumble recovery. The performance from the former Oakland Raiders star, who was traded just over a week ago, sent Twitter into a frenzy. Not only did reactions pour in from his former Raiders teammates, but also the likes of NBA star LeBron James.
Here’s a look at what was said about the 2016 Defensive Player of the Year’s first game with his new team.
