Big game coming up on Sunday!

The Colts travel to Green Bay, to play the Packers, on"the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field"! (probably not all that frozen anymore, with global warming and all). A potential Turning Point for both teams!
http://www.foxsports.com/indiana/story/winner-of-indianapolis-colts-green-bay-packers-game-could-reach-a-turning-point-110216

-as per this interesting article. Tough, tough matchup for Indianapolis, as they are 1-3 on the road; while the packers are 3-1 at home.

Showdown between 2 of the top quarterbacks: Aaron Rodgers, after a slow start, over the last 2 weeks ranks 3rd in passing ratings, 2nd in completions, and 1st in TD passes (!). He may be getting his old form back, and this against a vulnerable Indianapolis defense- 230 points allowed; 31st overall vs. the pass, surrendering an average of 287.8 passing yards per game. The Colts have allowed a 66.8% completion rate, and 14 TD's, vs. only 2 INT's (for shame, Ryan Grigson, on having chosen Philip Dorsett over Landon Collins!)

BUT! Andrew Luck, on the other side, has thrown for 2,284 yards and 16 TD's!
He has T.Y. Hilton, with his 46 catches and 709 yards, to throw to. Could be a real shootout between two great QB's.

If the Colts can turn this into a high-scoring contest, why, maaaaybe......?

All those who can be pulled away from the Omnium Gatherum predictions contest are welcome to weigh in, ideally with not just predictions, but why they see the game turning out as they say!

The Packers are going to be a tough team to play vs. Who knows though? We might pull off the upset here.

A bold prediction! Would you care to elaborate, e.g., do you think Andrew Luck will outgun Aaron Rodgers; or the Packers are simply ripe for an upset; or what?

While the Packers aren't as good as they once where they're still a formidable team. Getting a win over them may turn our season around. We're 4 and 5 and tied with the Titans for 2nd in the division, game and a half back in the division race.
