Colts 34, Packers 31 (OT): 2-minute drill

Green Bay turned the ball over four times and had just three points after halftime as it fell in overtime 34-31 to Indianapolis on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Play of the Game

On the second play of overtime, quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw a quick pass to the outside to Marquez Valdes-Scantling. As the wide receiver tried to cut back inside for more yards, rookie safety Julian Blackmon knocked the ball free and the Colts recovered. After three run plays, kicker Rodrigo Blankenship knocked home a 39-yard field goal to win it for Indy.

Game Balls

Offense: Aaron Rodgers

It came with two ugly turnovers, but Rodgers had a big game, throwing for 311 yards and three first-half touchdowns. He spread the ball around to nine different targets and was dialed in for the first 30 minutes of action.

Limited to just six plays and two three-and-outs in the third quarter, Rodgers ended up leading the offense on a 10-play, 86-yard drive to setup the game-tying field goal. The drive included an insane pass off his back foot that traveled 55 yards in the air and landed right in the arms of Valdes-Scantling for a 47-yard gain.

Defense: Kenny Clark

Playing against one of the best guards in the NFL in Quenton Nelson, the Packers nose tackle might have had his best game. He was routinely around the ball, finishing with a season-high six tackles. While the Colts did run it better in the second half and finished with 140 yards on the ground, Clark was part of a unit that ended up allowing just 3.8 yards per carry. The Pro Bowler also had his first sack of the season and drew at least two holding calls.
