Packers lead Colts at halftime, 21-3

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Green Bay Packers are 2-3 after falling to the Indianapolis Colts Sunday, October 7th at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indy.

The Pack led the Colts 21-3 Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indy.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers capped scoring for the half with a 31-yard touchdown pass to Randall Cobb on a third-and-six play -- with about four-and-a-half minutes left in the half.

Rodgers threw a six-yard touchdown pass to James Jones in the second quarter, after John Kuhn scored a two-yard touchdown run in the first quarter.

Rodgers completed 11 of 17 passes for 122 yards and no interceptions. He completed passes to seven different receivers.

Colts' Rookie quarterback Andrew Luck completed 16 of 26 passes for 174 yards.

Packers' Cedric Benson and B.J. Raji each had to leave the game with foot injuries.

The 2-2 Green Bay Packers take on the 1-2 Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, October 7th in Week Five of the NFL's regular season. This, following a close 28-27 victory in Week Four against the New Orleans Saints at Lambeau Field.

Last week's Packers/Saints game was the first game for the Pack since the NFL and referees union came to an agreement ending the strike that had replacement refs on the field for the first three weeks of the regular season. These replacement refs drew widespread controversy following what many say was a blown call during the Packers game in Seattle vs. the Seahawks -- that left Seattle with the win.

Kickoff for Sunday's game is at noon, at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The game will be broadcast on FOX6!

Earlier this week, it was learned Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano has been diagnosed with leukemia, according to team owner Jim Irsay. The coach’s doctor has described it as a highly treatable form of the disease.

Offensive coordinator Bruce Arians will take the team’s helm during Pagano’s absence.

Arians as named the team’s offensive coordinator on January 31, 2012, after spending the previous eight seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers (2004-11), including five as the offensive coordinator (2007-11). In Pittsburgh, Arians was part of teams that won three AFC North titles, two AFC Championships and one Super Bowl title.

The Pack visits the Colts on Sunday for the first time since 2004, and the team's first at Lucas Oil Stadium -- which opened in 2008. The game will kick off a stretch of three consecutive road games for Green Bay. Following Sunday’s contest against the Colts, Green Bay will travel to Houston and St. Louis for its next two games.

The Colts are coming off a bye heading into Sunday's game.

Sunday will mark the fifth meeting between the teams over the past 21 seasons (1992-2012). The teams have split the four meetings since ’92, with each club winning two games at home.

The Packers and Colts last met at Lambeau Field on Oct. 19, 2008 -- a 34-14 victory for the Packers. QB Aaron Rodgers was an efficient 21-of-28 for 186 yards and a TD, a 12-yarder to TE Donald Lee early in the second quarter that gave the Packers the lead for good. RB Ryan Grant carried the ball 31 times for 105 yards and a TD. Colts QB Peyton Manning was 21-of-42 for 229 yards and the two INTs. RB Dominic Rhodes rushed for 73 yards and two TDs.

Green Bay is 0-3 in Indianapolis. The Packers’ last road victory against the Colts came on September 22, 1974 -- a 20-13 win at Memorial Stadium in Baltimore.

Green Bay leads the NFL with 14 playoff appearances since ’93, with Indianapolis checking in tied for No. 2 with 13 appearances over that span. The franchises have combined for five Super Bowl appearances and three world titles during that period.
