Packers beat Colts, move back above .500 on season


GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- An undermanned defense returned two Peyton Manning passes for touchdowns and the Green Bay Packers rediscovered their swagger in a 34-14 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.

Aaron Rodgers gutted out his third straight game with a sprained right shoulder, going 21-for-28 for 186 yards and a touchdown despite 30-mph wind gusts at Lambeau Field.

Ryan Grant had his first 100-yard game of the season, carrying 31 times for 105 yards and a touchdown as the Packers (4-3) have won two straight after snapping a three-game losing streak at Seattle last Sunday.

Green Bay has a bye next week then plays at Tennessee Nov. 2.
