The Latest on Week 9 of the NFL season (all times Eastern):
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.
A furry critter has livened up the crowd at Lambeau Field in what has been a tough game so far Sunday for the Green Bay Packers.
The squirrel first made its appearance in the first half, then returned late in the third quarter. With the Packers driving at about the Colts 12, the squirrel dashed along the goal line, forcing the officials to call timeout.
The squirrel finally went out of bounds, but not before causing a stir on social media with many fans joking the animal was seeing more of the end zone than the Packers.
The Packers settled for a 27-yard field goal after the timeout.
