INDIANAPOLIS (WTAQ) - The Green Bay Packers made their third pre-season game interesting and exciting by scoring ten points in the final 3:52 to come back and beat the Indianapolis Colts 24-21 at Lucas Oil Field Friday.
Following Mike Newton's interception of a Graham Harrell pass, which Newton returned to the Packers 3 yard line, the Colts extended their lead to 8 on a Dan Orlovsky 3 yard bubble screen pass for a touchdown to David Gilreath.
Harrell then went back to work in the two-minute offense, marching the green and gold down the field. Colts defensive back Chip Vaughn aided the drive with back-to-back penalties.
The drive went 73 yards on 11 plays, with Harrell hitting Ryan Taylor for an 11-yard touchdown pass on 4th down. Harrell and Taylor then hooked up again on the two-point conversion to tie the game at 21-21.
The Packers then executed an on-side kick. Harrell then got the Packers in position for Mason Crosby to drill a 50-yard field goal at the final gun, pushing the Pack to the 24-21 win.
Starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers continued to play well, going 19-of-23 for 204 yards and a touchdown during the first half.
Tight end Jermichael Finley caught 4 passes for 41 yards and a touchdown.
