The 13-0 Packers lose, 0-13 Colts win. It was a wild week in the NFL as the worst team in the league wins their first game against the Tennessee Titans, and the undefeated team loses to the Kansas City Chiefs. While it’s a little late for Indianapolis this year, they don’t have to end the season being winless. Green Bay’s Aaron Rogers had a look of disbelief when losing 2 key players during the game.
The last time the 2010 Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers lost a game that meant something was December 19th of last year to the New England Patriots, just one day short of a full calendar year.
The team from Wisconsin lost two offensive lineman to injuries was a devastating loss in the game. Moreover, it could have a huge impact on how the team survives during the Playoffs before the Super Bowl. The Packers can’t afford to lose valuable players this close to the end.
On the flip side of the coin, the Indianapolis Colts finally win their first game of the season without playing with perfection. They are still missing their star quarterback, Peyton Manning, who looks ready to play. He’s been out all season due to a neck injury.
Indianpolis is already talking about playing Manning, but that would be the worse move yet, because they can’t afford to lose him again for next season.
The Packers have a powerful offense with Rogers, but while the Colts are a great team, they are missing Manning. It shows you how important it is to have a good quarterback that can lead a team when the going gets tough. The Super Bowl is on February 6, 2012.
