uld you punish the Week of Greatness for something tha Antworten

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Colts coach Chuck Pagano returned home to Indianapolis in a good mood.A 31-26 win Sunday on the road over the Green Bay Packers should do wonders for his teams confidence going into a bye week.Jordan Todman had a 99-yard return for a touchdown on the opening kickoff, Frank Gore rushed for two touchdowns and Andrew Luck shook off two interceptions in the first quarter with two clutch third-down throws in the fourth quarter to hold off the Packers.This was about as close as a must-win game as it could get at midseason for Indianapolis (4-5).Everybody knew exactly where we were and what the stakes were. Its a whole different world today, right now. Tomorrow will be a totally different world, Pagano said. A 4-5 record is way different coming off this then going back home and being 3-6.The Colts survived after letting an 18-point lead with 9:35 left nearly disappear. They withstood Aaron Rodgers comeback attempt.Not an ideal start offensively ... from my game, the two interceptions. Like anything, youve got to move on, Luck said . The defense built up strong early, which was huge. Then made enough plays at the end to win.Rodgers 3-yard touchdown pass to Randall Cobb with 3:29 left got Green Bay (4-4) within five, capping a 14-point spurt in four-plus minutes. Rodgers finished 26 of 43 for 297 yards with three scores and an interception.Luck responded on the Colts next drive with what Pagano called two unbelievable plays.The quarterback dodged a potential sack by blitzing safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to throw a 20-yard pass on third-and-10 with 3:07 left to tight end Jack Doyle.Luck also found T.Y. Hilton for a 27-yard completion on third-and-2 with 2 minutes left to put the game away. He finished 23 of 36, throwing both interceptions to Clinton-Dix.We didnt play good enough, Im disappointed, Im irritated, the fact that we were not sharp as a football team, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said.Other notes and takeaways from the game:PROTECTING LUCKThe Colts, who had allowed an NFL-worst 31 sacks coming into the game, gave their quarterback decent protection. Luck was sacked twice and maneuvered out of other tight spots, including a 7-yard scramble on a bootleg on third-and-1 with 37 seconds left in the second quarter.He deftly engineered a 15-play, 96-yard drive that ended with an 8-yard touchdown pass to Donte Moncrief with 11 seconds left to give Indianapolis a 21-10 halftime lead.LOW ENERGY?Familiar problems surfaced early for the Packers, who lost their second straight game. The offense had trouble getting going until the fourth quarter. But the defense gave up at least 30 points for a second straight game, and special teams also hurt them.Todmans kickoff return to open the game seemed to be a Green Bay buzz-killer.Weve all got to be a little mentally tougher. I dont understand the way the sideline was after that first play. We go down, lets get a field goal and well win the game. Its 7-3 early on. Weve got to be a little tougher. Thats the mark of a team, Rodgers said.INJURIESRodgers said he had his left foot stepped on pretty hard. I mean, thats a common frustration from time to time, just getting stepped on really badly. Its fine.Cobb finished with two catches for 14 yards. Questionable before the game with a hamstring injury, Cobb didnt play until the second half.I took a conservative approach with him. I was going to use him only when we needed him. Obviously, we needed him in the second half and he gave us everything hes got, McCarthy said.Safety Micah Hyde (shoulder) left in the fourth quarter. The Colts had no injuries to report.FURRY FRIENDA persistent squirrel livened up the crowd at Lambeau Field.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 .The Packers had to settle for a 27-yard field goal with 1:46 left to get within 24-13. No word on if the squirrel made the traditional Lambeau Leap to celebrate.---For more NFL coverage: and Genaro Armas at: Sko Fake . - Derek Wolfe says hes finally healthy after suffering a seizure in November that doctors now believe was related to the spinal cord injury he suffered in the preseason. Køb Fake Yeezy . Here are his mid-season NBA awards. MVP: (KEVIN DURANT-Thunder) - Has been sensational this season and more importantly, the most consistent player in the league. Considering that his team has been without star guard Russell Westbrook and with the free agent departure of sharpshooter Kevin Martin, hes had to carry the majority of the load to not only keep his team afloat but more importantly, at an elite level. . -- Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Farmar will be out for roughly four weeks after tearing his left hamstring. Yeezy Boost Danmark . Defenceman Yannick Weber scored the go-ahead goal early in the third period and the Canucks breathed a sigh of relief with a 2-1 win on Saturday night. Adidas Zx Flux Sort Danmark . Andreas Johnson had a goal and two assists while Jacob de la Rose also scored for Sweden (2-0-0). Esa Lindell and Rasmus Ristolainen replied for Finland (1-1-0) Lindell opened the scoring for Finland just 41 seconds into the game, but the hosts quickly regained their composure and tied the score less than four minutes later on Wennbergs first of the game.Tom Brady is finally ready to laugh at Deflategate.The New England Patriots quarterback, who was forced to sit out four games earlier this season for allegedly being aware of a scheme to deflate footballs in the 2015 AFC title game, is featured in a new spot for Foot Locker that debuted Wednesday.Leading up to Thanksgiving, the shoe and apparel retailer concentrates a week full of shoe releases that it calls its Week of Greatness.In the spot with Brady, two fans walk into a diner having picked up their shoes and wonder aloud how its possible that the company is sustaining success.Brady overhears the two and launches into a speech, which eventually becomes about him.Just because something is great year after year doesnt mean anything is going on, Brady says to the fans. Why cant some things just be great? It starts with questions, and then questions turn into assumptions, and then assumptions turn into vacations. So why would you punish the Week of Greatness for something that never even happened?Fooot Locker wrote the spot for Brady, and the quarterback was all-in.ddddddddddddWe like our spots to allow athletes to poke fun at themselves, and people enjoy that, said Jed Berger, the companys vice president of brand marketing. Our fans and customers like to see these athletes as humans. I dont think anyone has seen Tom Brady like they see him in this spot.Because the ads run for only 10 days, its important that they resonate, Berger said.Three years ago, the companys Week of Greatness ads were based on the idea that all was right in the world. Mike Tyson gave Evander Holyfield his ear back; Dennis Rodman was given a one-way ticket to North Korea; and Brett Favre finally knew just when to retire.In the 2014 ad, Derrick Rose called up Tim Duncan to express his excitement over the week, and Duncan mustered as much excitement as he could -- which, of course, wasnt much.
