Well, how about one more recap; this one from another local reporter. 

Phil Richards of the Indianapolis Star looks at the defensive "attitude adjustment" that spurred the Colts' improbable comeback victory over a very good Packers team.  Richards spoke to Robert Mathis and Cory Redding and also broke down how the Colts hybrid 3-4 defense managed to shut down so many Green Bay drives with big defensive plays:

Cornerback Jerraud Powers made the interception that turned the momentum and set up the first Colts touchdown. On almost every series thereafter, the Colts made a disruptive play to spike the possession and return the football to their offense.

>> Redding sacked Rodgers to force a third-and-15 that eventually led to a Colts field goal.

>> Linebacker Kavell Conner shot a gap and nailed running back Alex Green for a 4-yard loss and third-and-14.

>> Outside linebacker Dwight Freeney buried Rodgers to force fourth-and-16.

>> A Mathis sack resulted in second-and-16.

>> Linebacker Moise Fokou's sack put the Packers in third-and-11 and Redding crashed into the backfield on the next play to take down Rodgers and make it fourth-and-18.

Seven big plays, beginning with Powers. Six drives killed.

Let me stress, this wasn't some team bound for a high draft pick.  This was the high flying offense of the Packers that was foiled by the unrelenting Colts defenders.  Check out Phil's article.  It's a good one.
