Packers 34 - Colts 14
I sat in amazement, wondering aloud, if this was the same team I saw hand it to the Ravens last week. I swear, the Colts' defense has two-thirds the amount of personalities as the fictional character Sybil. And the offense has the difference.
I can give some credit to the poor officiating, which was some of the worst I have seen in the many years of watching the NFL. They should all be fined and suspended. But it alone was not the determining factor in the final outcome.
When one begins to dissect the elements of the game, the bottom line is, the Packers brought it and the Colts did not. The fire was lit under the Packers, while they snuffed out the Colts' confidence.
The Pack really dominated the line of scrimmage, on both sides of the ball. The Colts running defense brought their red carpet for the Green Bay runners and the fighter escorts for the receivers. The Packers' secondary brought their radar and the defensive line ate their Wheaties before the game. GB rushed four for pretty much the entire game, keeping their LBs back on the Colt's receivers and taking away those underneath routes.
Put this with the emotion of needing the win worse than Indy and you have the makings of a thorough rout, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. The Colts had better get this one figured out quickly, because they play Tennessee next and the Titans will very likely bring the exact same game plan.
The only thing good about this day was seeing the score on the Buffalo - San Diego game.
Anyway, my Grandson dominated the weekend and I was not able to see any other games. So this is the only review I will post this week.
How did your teams fare and what were your thoughts about them?
