Khalil Mack had a sack, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery, an interception and a touchdown before halftime.
New Bears All-Pro pass rusher Khalil Mack didn't waste time showing off his expensive price tag in his debut against the Packers on Sunday.
Mack had a sack, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery, an interception and a touchdown before halftime.
On a third-and-goal situation, Mack broke past a wideout then the right tackle and stripped the ball from quarterback DeShone Kizer.
He then had a pick-six to give the Bears a 17–0 lead at the half.
Kizer came in earlier for Aaron Rodgers when Rodgers was carted off the field after getting sacked.
With Mack's performance, Twitter had a field day.

*The Bears also got a second round pick in the Khalil Mack trade for some reason.*
You know what’s a bad idea? Trading Khalil Mack.— Bill Simmons (@BillSimmons) September 10, 2018
The Raiders and Bears reached an agreement to send Mack to Chicago, with Mack then signing a record six-year, $141 million extension. Mack's deal includes $90 million guaranteed and a $60 million signing bonus and his contract makes him the highest-paid defensive player in NFL history.
The 27-year-old was selected by the Raiders with the fifth overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft. He finished last year with 10.5 sacks.
