Packers fall short to the Colts in OT

The Green Bay Packers faced the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday falling short of victory in a heavily contested overtime matchup, 31-34. 

 

For the second consecutive game, the Packers did not score on the opening drive but were able to put up the first score of the game with a 25-yard touchdown catch to Robert Tonyan from Aaron Rodgers. After the Colts put a drive together of their own, the score finished 7-7 in the first quarter. Green Bay entered halftime ahead 28-14 with a trio of scores, one coming from Aaron Jones on the ground, another from Davante Adams through the air for a 5-yard scoring reception and a last second 4-yard touchdown pass to Jamaal Williams. 

 

Green Bay kicked off the second half to the Colts, giving Indianapolis the opportunity to kick a field goal, making it a 28-17 game. After the Packers managed a three and out drive, Indianapolis drove down the field with a combination of running and passing plays that led to a touchdown and 2-point conversion putting the Colts in reach, 25-28. Fourth quarter play started with Indianapolis tacking on back-to-back field goals to go ahead 31-28. Green Bay was saved by the Colts who consumed 6 holding calls late in the fourth quarter, which led to a Packers scoring opportunity with 1:25 left to play. Aaron Rodgers threw a 47-yard bomb to Marquez Valdes-Scantling that set up Mason Crosby for a game-tying field goal, sending the contest to overtime, 31-31. Green Bay received the ball to kick off overtime that started their offensive drive with a crucial fumble play that gave Indianapolis an opportunity to set up for what would be the game winning field goal. The 31-34 loss puts Green Bay to 7-3 on the season and out of the first-round bye spot in the NFC heading into week 12 against the Chicago Bears.
