Welcome to SportsCastr News Monday Morning Edition, Talking about the game of the week.
The Green Bay Packers visiting the Indianapolis Colts.
Green Bay had a huge lead in the first half.
Both teams in the first half turned the ball over two different times.
We had one interception by each quarterback and one fumble by each team.
And yet Green Bay just seemed unstoppable.
Green Bay was able to score off those turnovers, whereas Indianapolis was only able to score on their own drives.
Unable to get points off those turnovers, Aaron Rodgers had about 200 yards passing in the first half.
But in the second half is where the game actually becomes interesting.
The Indian Act was caught defense, made adjustments and stopped the Green Bay Packers drive after drive after drive and the Colts offense continue to move and score points.
Aaron Rodgers ended up with a very impressive 27 of 38 311 yards, three touchdowns, toe one interception against the NFL's number one overall defense and the number to pass defense.
But as I said, two thirds of that came in the first half.
The big problem.
They couldn't run the football.
They carried the ball 15 times by their running backs for an average of about 3.
2 yards a carry, whereas the Indianapolis Colts Philip Rivers also had a very similar game to Aaron Rodgers against a vaunted past defense in Green Bay and healthy 24 36 288 yards, three touchdowns and one interception.
Indianapolis ran the football.
Jonathan Taylor had 22 carries for 90 yards.
Jordan Wilkins, four carries 21 yards to Michael Harris, had two carries for 19 yards.
Mahin Heinz had six carries.
Rivers how to carry.
Even though he was sacked.
Jacoby percent had two runs, two runs.
One was indicative of how this game went.
It was a fourth down, and to it was a quarterback sneak, and Jacoby percent would not go down.
He got the sneak and just kept running it amidst all the defenders there he was just powering his way through for an extra three or four yards past where he needed to go.
That shows the toughness, the mental toughness.
Two weeks in a row, the Colts air down by at least 14 points in a game and come back to win it this time in overtime.
Lay in the game.
Well, let's go back to Actually, Philip Rivers again spread the ball around all over the field.
11 different players on the Colts had at least one reception.
No one had Mawr than four.
The first touchdown, which went to Michael Pittman Jr.
Who had the most yards in this game, was a nice little out route wearing, which Michael Pittman then used his speed and power and vision on the field to weave through the secondary of Green Bay to score a long touchdown.
Now, defensively, this is where God interesting.
The Colts forced four turnovers against Ah Green Bay Packers office.
That does not turn the ball over.
Yes, they had one interception, but they also had four or three forced fumbles.
One, Darius Leonard, recovered one to force.
Buckner recovered, and then one Tavon Wilson recovered on special teams again two weeks in a row where special teams get making plays against their opponent.
Rocky Sin had the interception, where he baited uh, Aaron Rodgers into throwing a football, thinking that his receiver was open and rock then closed the gap and caught the football underneath the route.
Defensively, Kenny More lead this defense with 10 tackles.
Julian Blackmon had a great game and made another statement game another play at the end of the game in overtime for his rookie defensive Rookie of the Year campaign.
As on a wide receiver screenplay in overtime to Marquez Valdez scant Ling.
He was blocked out by to Green Bay players and somehow split.
Those players reached out and knocked the ball out of Valdez scandal ings Hands, which was then recovered by DeForest Buckner, which set up the Rodrigue Oh Blankinship field goal to win the game in overtime.
Green Bay now drops to seven and three and loses its first place standing in the NFC, whereas the Indianapolis Colts move up to seven and three, staying with the top of the division of the A F C South with the Tennessee Titans, who also won in overtime in a comeback win against the Baltimore Ravens.
The Titans and the Colts play in Week 12 for sole possession of the A F C South.
