Colts vs. Packers

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Frank Gore ran for two touchdowns, Jordan Todman returned the opening kickoff 99 yards for a score and the Indianapolis Colts beat the Green Bay Packers 31-26.

Andrew Luck shook off two interceptions in the first quarter to finish with 281 yards passing and a score. The Colts, who had allowed an NFL-worst 31 sacks coming into the game, gave up just two against what had been tough Packers pass rush.

Indianapolis (4-5) heads into a bye week with perhaps its most complete win of what has been a tough season. Todman's early score set the tone at Lambeau Field.

Familiar problems surfaced again for the Packers (4-4), who lost their second straight game.
