Packers Have Bad Luck In Indianapolis

The Green Bay Packers (2-3) are now two games back in the NFC North as they lost to the Indianapolis Colts Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium, 30-27.  The Colts (2-2) rallied from a 21-3 deficit and took their first lead with 35 second left in the fourth quarter when Andrew Luck hit Reggie Wayne with a four yard touchdown pass.  Donald Brown ran for the two point conversion and Indianapolis led 30-27.  However, Aaron Rodgers quickly moved the Packers 47 yards setting up a 51-yard field goal try by Mason Crosby. That kick sailed wide left sending Crosby and his teammates home with a loss…

The Packers are below .500 in the month of October for the first time since 2008, when the team was 2-3 after five games and on their way to a 6-10 season.  Head coach Mike McCarthy is not particularly pleased with the way his team has played…

Aaron Rodgers threw for 243 yards and three touchdowns (two to James Jones, one to Randall Cobb) and he was intercepted once.  The Packers quarterback talked about the second half when his team was outscored 27-6…

Reggie Wayne was unstoppable at times for the Colts.  Including the go ahead touchdown, the veteran receiver had 13 receptions for 212 yards.   Packers corner Tramon Williams tipped his cap to Wayne…

Receiver Greg Jennings missed the game with a groin injury and the Packers lost running back Cedric Benson (foot) and defensive tackle B.J. Raji (ankle) to first half injuries and tightend Jermichael Finley left in the third quarter (shoulder).  Linebacker Clay Matthews was not using those injuries as an excuse…

Next up for the Packers is a Sunday night meeting with one of the top teams in the NFL this season, the Houston Texans.  Kickoff Sunday in Houston is set for 7:20 PM.

Notes:
Including the postseason, the Packers are now 21-21-1 all-time against the Colts.  They are 0-4 at Indianapolis and 0-1 at Lucas Oil Stadium, which opened in 2008.

Reggie Wayne’s 212 receiving yards is tied for second most ever against the Packers.  The Lions Calvin Johnson had 244 receiving yards versus the Packers in 2012 and Gene “Choo-Choo” Roberts of the New York Giants had 212 receiving yards against Green Bay in 1949.

The win capped an emotional week for the Colts.  Head coach Chuck Pagano began treatment for leukemia, leaving offensive coordinator Bruce Arians in charge.  Arians said Sunday’s win was the best he has ever been a part of…

Both Pagano and Arians were awarded game balls after the 30-27 win over the Packers.
