Field since 2008, when Packers S Aaron Rouse had 99-yard INT return
for TD in Green Bay’s 34-14 win. … Colts last won at Lambeau in
1988. … QB Andrew Luck needs one 300-yard passing game to tie
John Unitas (26) for second most in team history. … RB Frank Gore
looking for third straight game with TD catch. … Gore needs nine
carries to pass Marshall Faulk (2,836) for 15th place on NFL career
list. … Jack Doyle tied for first among NFL TEs with four TDs.
… LB Erik Walden, a former Packer, one of seven NFL players with
at least six sacks and two forced fumbles. … K Adam Vinatieri’s
43 straight FGs longest streak in NFL history. … Packers QB Aaron
Rodgers coming off consecutive 100-plus passer rating games for
first time since Weeks 2-3 in 2015. … Rodgers averaging 312.4
yards per game with 15 TDs, no interceptions in past five home
games vs. AFC. … WR Davante Adams has franchise record 25 catches
in last two games, with 206 yards, two TDs. … WR Jordy Nelson

third-down conversions (51.6 percent). … Defense allowing 3.34
yards per carry, third in league. … LB Julius Peppers, active
career sacks leader (139.5), has sack in two of last three games.
.. Fantasy Tip: Check on pregame status of WR Ty Montgomery
(illness), key all-purpose player who can line up in Packers’
backfield when healthy. Montgomery had 20 catches on 25 targets in
his previous two games before missing loss to Falcons.
