So far, the Indianapolis Colts‘ Week Five match-up against the Green Bay Packers hasn’t been looking so pretty. The Colts have already allowed two easy touchdowns for the Packers, taking a big 14-0 lead with still a lot of time left.
The Colts entered this game with a lot of emotions in play, with head coach Chuck Pagano diagnosed with leukemia, and who is probably watching this game from his hospital bed. Pagano’s cancer is treatable, but he will be out for the season.
With offensive coordinator Bruce Arians being the team’s interim head coach, he is in for a tough debut with one of the league’s most dangerous teams. The Colts were in need of putting up points really quickly to even stay in the field of which the Packers are in with their high-powered offense led by quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
With that, the Colts were able to get their first scoring drive going. After several three-and-outs and one turnover-on-downs, the Colts could not fail on this drive. On 3rd-and-6, quarterback Andrew Luck threw the ball down the field from the 40-yard-line, overthrowing wide receiver Reggie Wayne by a few inches.
No worries, however. The 12-year-veteran was able to make one of the most sickest catches of the year, completing a miraculous, one-handed catch to put the Colts in scoring position at the goal-line. It looked as if Wayne had sticky gloves or something, because I absolutely have no idea how he was able to get that. It kind of reminds me of a former Colts wide receiver, Marvin Harrison.
The Colts were able to score on the drive, but only a field goal. They are so far down 21-3 at the half, but Wayne is having himself one hell of a game so far, with six catches for 104 yards.
