Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers torched the vaunted Indianapolis Colts defense for 28 points in the first half on Sunday.
Then they learned what the hype was about. The league’s second-ranked defense put the clamps down on football’s top-rated quarterback after halftime while keeping the Packers off the scoreboard until the Packers forced overtime with three seconds remaining.
And in fitting fashion, a big defensive play in the extra session sealed the victory.
The Packers got the ball to start overtime. But Colts safety Justin Blackmon forced a fumble by Packers receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling that defensive end DeForest Buckner recovered for a turnover. Four plays later, Rodrigo Blankenship sent a 39-yard field goal through the uprights for an Indianapolis victory.
