Indy's remarkable second-half dominance made that perfectly clear.
Luck threw an 8-yard TD pass to Dwayne Allen and set up Adam Vinatieri for a 50-yard field goal to make it 21-13 midway through the third quarter. Luck then scored on a 3-yard run with 18 seconds left in the third quarter to get the Colts within 21-19.
A few minutes later, Vinatieri hit a 28-yard field goal to give Indy its first lead, 22-21.
But Rodgers quickly got Green Bay's offense back in sync.
Alex Green ran 41 yards on the Packers' first play, and Rodgers hooked up with Jones on the next play to give the Packers a 27-20 lead with 4:30 left.
All the Packers had to do was stop Luck one more time to clinch it.
But Luck and Wayne wouldn't allow it.
With the clock ticking down and anxious fans hoping and praying they could get this win for Pagano, Luck converted two third-down passes to Wayne, then scrambled for a third third-down conversion before, fittingly, spotting Wayne for the go-ahead score.
"I couldn't be prouder of a group of guys in all my life than I am of you guys right now. He (Pagano) was helping. Everybody was helping. Everybody was helping. He was coaching his (butt) off," Arians said, drawing laughter. "We did it for him. Boss, you've got it."
