Packers blow lead, fall to Colts 30-27

With a 21-3 lead at the half, the Green Bay Packers probably felt good about their chances. But if there's one thing Colts rookie quarterback Andrew Luck has proven, he's always a threat to make a comeback.

In their first game since head coach Chuck Pagano left the team to be treated for leukemia, the Colts outscored the Packers 27-6 in the second half to overcome another strong effort from Aaron Rodgers and the Packer offense.

Rodgers put up his usual big numbers, going for 243 yards and three touchdowns, but it was his rookie counterpart that stole the show. Luck threw for 362 yards and three touchdowns, including leading the Colts on a game-winning drive with less than a minute to go.

The Packers don't have much room to lament their loss. They travel to Texas to face the 4-0 Houston Texans next week.
