CHICAGO — Aaron Rodgers is back leading the Green Bay Packers and that could be bad news for every other playoff team.
He returned from a broken collarbone and is taking aim at a postseason run, even if it took one big pass to get there.
Rodgers fired a 48-yard touchdown to Randall Cobb in the final minute, and the Packers beat the Chicago Bears, 33-28, to capture the NFC North championship on Sunday.
‘‘This is a special group of guys who’ve been through a lot,’’ Rodgers said. ‘‘It’s been a roller coaster.’’
Back after missing seven games with a broken left collarbone, Rodgers found a wide-open Cobb on fourth-and-8 to wipe out a 1-point deficit with 38 seconds left. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
