Khalil Mack dominates the Packers in a historic first half as a Bear

NFL: Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Check out this nugget that Jack M Silverstein dug up.

The Chicago Bears are leading the Green Bay Packers at the half by a score of 17-0, and newcomer Khalil Mack has made his presence felt.

He has a couple tackles, a strip sack, a fumble recovery, and an interception that he returned 27 yards for a touchdown.

Not to mention the fact that his mere presence has had a positive impact on the entire defense. Overall the Bears have four sacks, with Akiem Hicks, Roy Robertson-Harris and rookie Roquan Smith getting in on the fun along with Mack.

On offense, quarterback Mitchell Trubisky is 11 for 14 for 109 yards and 3 runs for 15 yards and a TD. Running back Jordan Howard has 6 runs for 25 yards and a catch for 4 yards. Tarik Cohen had 3 rushes for 20 yards and 1 catch for 8 yards. Allen Robinson II leads the Bears with 3 49 receiving yards on 3 catches, and Taylor Gabriel leads them with 4 receptions for 24 yards.

But that half was all about Mack...
