Aaron Rodgers was in awe. The Green Bay Packers quarterback knew early in the week his cobbled-together offensive line was going to consist of center Corey Linsley and four guards — including starting left guard Lane Taylor, who’d be shifting to the all-important left tackle position, a place he’d pretty much never manned in his years of football. And while Rodgers went into Thursday night’s game against the Chicago Bears with hope, he also — truth be told — went in with doubts. Then, something remarkable happened. The Bears won the toss and opted to give the Packers the ball first — perhaps, to see what their ramshackle line was made of. Ten plays — five runs, five passes, including a 26-yarder to tight end Martellus Bennett on third-and-1 — and 75 yards later, Rodgers’ all-white Color Rush uniform was still sparkling clean, and the Packers were in the end zone on a 5-yard Rodgers-to-Davante Adams touchdown pass.
