Philip Rivers led the Indianapolis Colts to a memorable win against divisional rivals, Tennessee Titans, in Week 10. Frank Reich’s men sit at the top of the AFC South Division table heading into Sunday’s clash against Aaron Rodgers-led Green Bay Packers.
The Wisconsin-based franchise is in prime position to win the NFC North Division. Matt LaFleur has led the Packers to a 7-2 record in 2020. Some critics are even tipping them to make this year’s Super Bowl. Here’s a detailed look at both teams, along with injury updates and Week 11 Game Day predictions.

Frank Reich and the Indianapolis Colts are riding high after last Sunday’s win. The AFC South table-toppers have lost just once in their last four NFL outings. Quarterback Philip Rivers will go up against an old foe in the form of Aaron Rodgers tomorrow. Both veterans are respected and revered amongst their peers across the league.
The Colts have lost just one game at the Lucas Oil Stadium in 2020. But the Colts defence will need to be alert on Sunday if they want to put a stop to the free-flowing Green Bay attack.

Aaron Rodgers has turned back the clock with some eye-catching displays in the NFL this season. The two-time NFL MVP has thrown for 2,500+ yards with 26 touchdowns from nine games in 2020. He is at the forefront of the NFL MVP rave alongside Russell Wilson and Patrick Mahomes.
The 36-year old will be key for the Packers in Week 11, along with star wideouts Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling. T David Bakhtiari’s return has given Rodgers some stability in the pocket during crunch moments in the last two games. A disciplined defensive display should see the Packers return to Wisconsin with a win.

Colts vs Packers Prediction
Indianapolis Colts 33 – 42 Green Bay Packers
This game is bound to entice NFL fans due to the face-off between two of the most consistent quarterbacks of the last decade. Aaron Rodgers and Philip Rivers are both giants of the game. But we reckon the former will have the final say in tomorrow’s game at the Lucas Oil Stadium.
Rodgers has been unstoppable throughout this 2020 NFL campaign, barring that one disappointing display against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Packers’ fans will be hopeful that their leader can lead them to another win as we edge closer to the playoffs.
