Packers rein the Colts in 34-14 win

Posted by Mike Mardis - email

GREEN BAY, WI (AP) - An undermanned defense returned two Peyton Manning passes for touchdowns and the Green Bay Packers rediscovered their swagger in a 34-14 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.

Aaron Rodgers gutted out his third straight game with a sprained right shoulder, going 21 for 28 for 186 yards and a touchdown despite 30-mph wind gusts at Lambeau Field.

Ryan Grant had his first 100-yard game of the season, carrying 31 times for 105 yards and a touchdown as the Packers (4-3) have won two straight after snapping a 3-game losing streak at Seattle last Sunday.

Green Bay has a bye next week then plays at Tennessee November 2.
