Frank Reich’s Indianapolis Colts pulled off a major upset on Sunday as they made their way to a narrow 34-31 OT win over Green Bay Packers. The visitors looked in control of the game, thanks to some impressive link-ups between Aaron Rodgers and wideouts, Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling.

But a fumble in OT from Valdes-Scantling after a tackle from Julian Blackmon changed the tide of the tie. Colts kicker Rodrigo Blankenship’s 39-yard field goal sealed the win for the home side and condemned the visitors to their 3rd defeat of the season.

Philip Rivers heaps praise on ‘one of the greats’, Aaron Rodgers

Philip Rivers is a player who is well-respected within the NFL fraternity. He’s been in the league for a long time and has built a legacy playing for the Los Angeles Chargers between 2004 and 2019. Here’s what the eight-time Pro Bowler said with respect his colleague Aaron Rodgers after Sunday’s morale-boosting win over the Packers.

“We felt like we were doing pretty good in the first half…so I didn’t feel like they had stopped us we’re just you know, committed some errors, self-inflicted errors…So it was a heck of a team when I tell you that Aaron Rodgers is unbelievable.

“I watch some of the throws he makes, I can’t make some of those throws. Physically, I can’t make them, I can make them with my mind, it  was a heck of a game.

“Playing against the great quarterbacks of all the time, I played against a lot of them, I’ve been on the sideline so I don’t like to say I played against him but I don’t like to miss it.

“I mean, it’s awesome. Um, so you’re pulling for your defence, but yeah, just trying to respect him and his career,” Rivers said after the game.
