Packers fall to Colts in OT, 34-31

By MICHAEL MAROT AP Sports Writer

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis defense kept Aaron Rodgers off the field most of the second half, then forced a game-changing fumble less than a minute into overtime for a 34-31 victory over Green Bay.

Rodgers threw three touchdown passes to stake the Packers to a 28-14 halftime lead. But Indy's defense forced two three-and-outs in the third quarter and a turnover on downs in the fourth to fuel the comeback.

Mason Crosby tied the score with a 26-yard field goal with 3 seconds left in regulation.

DeForest Buckner's fumble recovery on the Packers' second play of OT set up Rodrigo Blankenship's decisive 39-yard field goal.

The Packers drop to 7-3 with the loss, but are still in first place in the NFC North with a two game lead over the Chicago Bears.
