Packers lead at halftime, 21-3

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.
