Green Bay Packers
INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indianapolis Colts wanted to send a message to ailing coach Chuck Pagano, and they delivered one that will never be forgotten. Using a 27-point second half, the Colts came from 18 points down to beat the Green Bay Packers 30-27 on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium. Trailing 27-22, Colts rookie quarterback Andrew Luck engineered an 80-yard drive in the final 4:30 to win the game. He hit Reggie Wayne -- who had five catches on the drive -- with a 4-yard touchdown pass for the win. Wayne was hit by two defenders, but fought to extend the ball for the touchdown. Donald Brown ran for a two-point conversion. The Packers' Mason Crosby missed a 51-yard field goal with three seconds left that could have sent the game to overtime. Colts owner Jim Irsay left afterward to present the game ball to Pagano at the IU Health Simon Cancer Center, where Pagano is being treated acute promyelocytic leukemia. Luck completed 31 of 55 passes for a career-high 362 yards with two...

Okay, I'm just going to blast through a few of these recaps because, well, this was the kind of game that makes us want to read some recap articles. This was the type of win we like to savor for awhile.
So, first up, Conrad Brunner of 1070 The Fan has a nice wrap-up of the game and touches on how truly important it was to Reggie Wayne:
This is the type of game that will live on in the memories of Colts fans everywhere. With it being the first weekend of breast cancer awareness month in the NFL, almost all the players and coaches were wearing splashes of pink throughout their uniforms, but it was a single pair of orange gloves that seemed to show up everywhere on the field. Orange is the official color of leukemia...
The Indianapolis Colts beat the Green Bay Packers when their Rookie quarterback Andrew Luck wouldn’t accept losing. Luck played like a seasoned pro as he dueled with Aaron Rodgers today. Luck showed he has the poise of anyone who plays quarterback in the NFL. The Colts would see Luck throw the ball 55 times in the game completing 31 of them for 362 yards and 2 touchdowns. Luck...
Reggie Wayne turns 34 in November, but the Colts' wide receiver is looking as good as ever so far in the 2012 NFL season.
In the first half of the Colts' game vs. the Packers today in Indianapolis, Wayne reeled in six catches for 106 yards. And his most impressive reception was without question this awesome one-handed grab:
Thigh Five: Cosby Sweaters
Watching the Indianapolis Colts defeat the Green Bay Packers in Week 5 of the 2012 NFL season should be etched in the memories of all Colts fans. The importance of the victory expands well beyond the impressive individual performances of players like Andrew Luck and Reggie Wayne.
It expands well beyond the importance of a 50/50 record for the team's chances to find its way into...
After Sunday's 212-yard effort, Colts wideout Reggie Wayne leads the NFL in receiving yards-per-game (126.5).Fantasy Spin:Apparently rumors of Wayne's "fantasy death" were greatly exaggerated. All he needed was a quarterback who could get him the ball. With rookie Andrew Luck under center Wayne should certainly produce his eighth 1,000-yard receiving season in the...
Colts receiver Reggie Wayne had 13 receptions for 212 yards and a game-winning touchdown Sunday against the Packers.Fantasy Spin:Wayne has been a fantasy monster through four games, catching no less than six balls for no less than 71 yards in any of them. He's averaging a ridiculous 126.5 yards per game.

The Colts week 5 game was supposed to be about their Head Coach. It was supposed to be about the emotions of the sad, unexpected, depressing situation. It was supposed to be about the Green Bay Packers showing the world they're still the best team in the NFL.
Instead, as the Colts (2-2) fought back from a 21-3 halftime deficit to win 30-27, we found that today was all about...

Though the calendar states Columbus Day as a time to venerate the maiden voyage to the Americas, the holiday receives little admiration. Banks are closed, but pretty sure the financial district gets respite for such "celebrations" as Oktoberfest and National Pancake Day. The Canadians think so little of the festivities that they coincided their Thanksgiving with the commemoration...
There was pink in his uniform as part of the NFL's Breast Cancer Awareness campaign.
He wore orange gloves -- potential NFL fine, be damned -- to honor his ailing head coach Chuck Pagano.
And with a touch of grey, 33-year-old Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne enjoyed his greatest NFL performance Sunday during a wild 30-27 victory over Green Bay.
I’m a burner Juan…
The Colts pass attack is not going anywhere but up in 2012. Andrew Luck looks legit as a real passer as well as a fantasy QB. Not only can he get it done through the air, but his legs have provided owners with nice stats as well. The Bears tore him up, but look at what they have done to fantasy elites like Rodgers and Romo. Since the Bears game, Luck...
[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="702"] Part of the reason Reggie Wayne is so valuable to fantasy owners is that he leads the league in targets.[/caption]Since targets have become a stat, fantasy junkies have fallen in love with it, including us! But just because your favorite WR gets thrown to 12 times each week, that does not guarantee anything...
