  • Sat., Apr. 26, 2014 8:00AM - 6:00PM CDT Packers Pro Shop Tent Sale

    The sale is taking place earlier than in previous years, due to the construction at Lambeau Field and the work that the Pro Shop team must complete in preparation for the new store, which will open this summer. Visitors to Lambeau Field should enter the Atrium through the Oneida Nation Gate. Parking is available in the lot on Lambeau Field’s east side near the Oneida Nation Gate, which can be accessed off Oneida Street and Lombardi Avenue.

    The sale will feature the traditional mix of Pro Shop items greatly reduced in price and other special purchases.

    The team’s football operations staff also has provided Packers team apparel no longer in use, including a large assortment of t-shirts, shorts, jackets, jerseys and pants. Some items are practice-worn gear not normally available in the Pro Shop.

    The tent sale began in 1994 in the parking lot outside the former Pro Shop on the north end of Lambeau Field and grew into a popular event. Now in its 11th year in the Atrium, the tent sale also was held in the west side stadium concourse in previous years.

Colts rally to beat Packers, 30-27

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on October 7, 2012 – 3:41 pm

INDIANAPOLIS–Rookie quarterback Andrew Luck rallied the Colts for a 30-27 win over the Packers on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium.

After the Packers took a 27-22 lead with 4:34 to play, Luck took possession at his 20-yard line. He quickly moved the Colts across midfield, then faced a crucial third-and-12 play at the two-minute warning. With Clay Matthews draped on him, Luck threw complete to Reggie Wayne at the Packers 32. Luck then hit Wayne again over the middle, at the Packers 14.

From the 11-yard line, Luck faced third and seven inside a minute to play. He avoided the rush and ran for a first down at the three-yard line. From there, he threw the game-winner to Wayne, and the Colts ran for a two-point conversion.

An interception by Colts cornerback Jerraud Powers early in the third quarter, with the Packers holding a comfortable 21-3 advantage, changed the game and triggered a Colts rally that grabbed a 22-21 lead.

Running back Alex Green made the big play in a Packers drive that reclaimed the lead at 27-22. Green ran 41 yards to the Colts 8-yard line. On the next play, Aaron Rodgers pitched a touchdown to James Jones.

Mason Crosby missed a 51-yard field goal attempt to tie the game with :03 to play.

Packers lead at halftime, 21-3

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on October 7, 2012 – 1:40 pm

INDIANAPOLIS–The Packers hold a 21-3 lead at halftime of Sunday’s game against the Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium, the result of an aggressive offense and a hard-hitting defense.

Aaron Rodgers capped the scoring with a dazzling 31-yard touchdown pass to Randall Cobb on a third-and-six play with about four-and-a-half minutes to play in the half. Rodgers also threw a six-yard touchdown pass to James Jones in the second quarter, after John Kuhn opened the scoring with a two-yard touchdown run in the first quarter.

Rodgers completed 11 of 17 passes for 122 yards and no interceptions. He completed passes to seven different receivers.

Defensively, the Packers stood firm on three downs from their 6-yard line to force a field goal that was the Colts’ only score of the half. Rookie quarterback Andrew Luck completed 16 of 26 passes for 174 yards.

An early turning point in the game occurred when the defense stopped Luck for no gain on a fourth-and-one play near midfield. The Packers immediately responded with a touchdown drive.

Cedric Benson and B.J. Raji each had to leave the game with foot injuries.

Defensive end Mike Neal, in his first action of the season, registered one of the Packers’ four sacks. Rookie Nick Perry had a crushing sack of Luck nullified by helmet-to-helmet contact.
