#4 – Packers vs. Colts (Week 11)

Even after a loss, you can say “what a game!” That’s what I did after witnessing this brilliant matchup in Week 11.

The first half of this game featured six total touchdowns, four of them going the way of the Packers. The reason this doesn’t rank higher on the list is that none of them were exactly thrilling plays.

Then in the second half the Colts got their run game going and Green Bay simply couldn’t stop Jonathan Taylor from churning out consistent 5-7 yard gains.

Meanwhile Green Bay’s offense completely fell apart in the second half. Up until the the 1:25 mark of the fourth quarter, the Packers had 15 plays, 53 yards and zero points. This stretch included a devastating kickoff return fumble by Darrius Shepherd.

The Colts slowly clawed their way in front with field goals as the Packers defense did well to hold them short of six points on multiple occasions.

Green Bay needed a miraculous final drive to send the game to overtime. Throwing from his own end zone on third-and-10, Aaron Rodgers linked up with Marquez Valdes-Scantling on a spectacular 47-yard catch in traffic to set up a game-tying field goal, sending the game to overtime.

Unfortunately, Valdes-Scantling’s hero status quickly ran out, as he fumbled the ball on the second play of overtime, leading to a Rodrigo Blankenship field goal to secure the win for the Indianapolis Colts.

Final Score: Colts 31 – 34 Packers
