The Packers got off to the worst possible start in an NFL game Sunday. A devastating 31-26 loss at Lambeau Field has fans scratching their heads Monday morning. Colts return man Jordan Todman returned the opening kickoff 99 to give the visitors a quick 7-0 lead. Andrew Luck threw a pair of interceptions and finished 23/36 for 281 yards and one touchdown. He led the Colts to a crowd silencing effort and quite possibly saved the head coach Chuck Pagano’s job for the time being.
Aaron Rodgers finished 26/43 for 297 passing yards, two touchdowns and one interception. His top target was Jordy Nelson. He managed seven receptions for 94 yards and one touchdown. Richard Rodgers tallied six receptions and Davante Adams added four catches in the loss.
Ty Montgomery was Green Bay’s top rusher. He carried the ball seven times for 53 yards. The loss coupled with a Minnesota Vikings loss to Detroit has the Lions and Packers a game behind the Vikings in the NFC North.
