Beat goes on for QB Aaron Rodgers

Associated Press - [Full Article]

Quarterback Graham Harrell led Green Bay to 11 points in the final 35 seconds, rallying the defending Super Bowl champs to a 24-21 victory over Indianapolis on Friday night.

Harrell threw an 11-yard TD pass to Ryan Taylor with 35 seconds left, then hooked up with Taylor again on the 2-point conversion to make it 21-21.

After the Packers recovered an onside kick, Harrell set up Mason Crosby for a 50-yard field goal as time expired.

Colts backup Curtis Painter also played well, going 11 of 21 for 171 yards.

Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers was in midseason form, going 19 of 23 for 204 yards with one TD to give Green Bay a 10-0 second-quarter lead.

Fantasy Impact: 

Rodgers has lit it up in the preseason, much like he did last year. Although Michael Vick goes into the season as the number one fantasy quarterback, Rodgers is fully capable of beating him out for that spot.
