Indianapolis' Reggie Wayne fights off a tackle by Green Bay's Tramon Williams to get into the end zone with the go-ahead touchdown with 35 seconds left in the Colts' 30-27 victory over the Packers on Sunday.

Luck rallies Colts past Packers

INDIANAPOLIS – Andrew Luck capped a second-half comeback by throwing a 4-yard touchdown pass to Reggie Wayne with 35 seconds to go that gave Indianapolis a stunning 30-27 victory over Green Bay on Sunday in the Colts’ first game without coach Chuck Pagano.

Green Bay (2-3) had a chance to force overtime, but Mason Crosby missed a 51-yard field goal with 3 seconds to go. Luck then took a knee and time ran out and the team celebrated. Missing was Pagano, who is in a hospital undergoing treatment for leukemia that was recently diagnosed.

Luck came through with just what Pagano wanted – getting the Colts (2-2) to .500. And they did it despite trailing 21-3 at halftime.

After Adam Vinatieri gave Indianapolis its first lead at 22-21 with a 28-yard field goal, Aaron Rodgers threw an 8-yard TD pass to James Jones to make it 27-22 with 4:30 left before the Colts rallied.
