wasn't that long ago that the packers owned one of the greatest home field advantages in the nfl. but in their last 9 games at lambeau field, the packers record is just 4-and-5, with losses to the bears, lions, vikings, cowboys and colts. , this afternoon, it was an uphill battle all the way against indianapolis. jordan todman returned the opening kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown, and i don't think he was touched. todman later had a 61 yard return.
the first quarter, but green bay converted those 2 picks into just 7 points. down 14-to-3 the packers finally got into the end zone at the end of the first quarter, rodgers, taking advantage of a free play, threw one up for grabs into the end zone and jordy nelson , snatched the ball from a defender for his seventh touchdown of the season. but they couldn't stop the colts when they needed to end of the first half, a 96 yard colts drive ended with this td pass from luck to donte moncrief. it was1- found some pep rodgers to davante adams for one score. then, rodgers to randall cobb for another short touchdown, all they would need was one last stop, get the ball back, and drive for the winning score. it never happened. luck converted a pair of huge third downs to run out the clock and the colts beat the packers 31-to-26. >> you know, we've got to be a little tougher. that is the mark of a team. you know, we talk about that all the time.
players you've got, the kind of team you've got. >> we are in desperation mode. don't get me wrong, but we have to hunker down and play hard from the beginning of the game. you can do stuff like that. it comes great to come back at the end, but the clock is going to run out eventually. dan: no one was fired tonight. coming up in our next half hour, stephen watson digs deeper into the failures on both sides of the ball by the packers today. plus, talk about a lousy sports sunday in wisconsin. how the bucks manage l began the day without a win. adrienne: all right, thanks, dan. the search tonight for a hit and run driver. sheldon: the victim a five-year-old girl, killed on her way to church. up next the plea from the child's family. adrienne: plus, donald trump rushed off stage this weekend. now, the man who triggered this
