5 Winners and Losers of Indianapolis Colts vs. Green Bay Packers Game

The Indianapolis Colts pulled a monumental upset in beating the Green Bay Packers 30-27 today. For the Colts, this game meant so much to a young team fighting for their coach who is fighting for his life in a bout with leukemia right down the street from Lucas Oil Stadium. The Colts wanted to win this game for their coach and bring him the game ball from the victory.

That they did.


Indianapolis looked good on both sides of the ball and pulled a storybook ending to what seemed like a movie. It couldn't have been scripted any better. The Colts trailed 21-3 at the half and looked like they were going to get steamrolled at home. Then, they came out emotional and played like their hair was on fire and only gave up six total points to the mighty Packers.
The offense grew up right in front of our eyes as they scored 27 points in that second half including a closing seconds touchdown and conversion of two points to give them a three-point lead with just mere seconds left. This storybook game was something that the Colts are used to seeing when they face the New England Patriots in epic comebacks with a veteran team and quarterback. This wasn't supposed to happen with a young team, rookie quarterback only making his fourth NFL start and a fill-in coach while the normal coach is fighting for his life.
These are the five winners and losers from today's game.
