The famous NFL cliché “we can beat anybody” didn't quite do Sunday's matchup between the Packers and Colts justice. Maybe it should be reworked to something along the lines of “we can destroy/dismantle/demoralize anybody," which is exactly how the Packers must be feeling after their 34-14 win at Lambeau over the Colts.

I said in my most recent article that in a close game the battle tested Colts were the favorite-I’d like to think someone in Green Bay read my article and decided not to let it come to that. With two pick-sixes in this game, the Green Bay secondary scored as many points as the entire Colts offense. With a return-to-form game by running back Ryan Grant and a near-flawless performance by quarterback Aaron Rodgers, the Pack looked unstoppable.

Commentary: Next for the Packers are the 6-0 Tennessee Titans. The good news is that the 4-3 Packers have a bye week, thus giving them a long time to prepare for the Titans. The way the Pack looked against the Colts, knocking off the Titans has become a real possibility.

Fan Pulse: After clinching a tie for first place atop the NFC North (for now), fans appear to be truly optimistic for the first time in a several weeks. That optimism has fans looking forward to the Titans game rather than preparing for the worst.

Fantasy Focus: Grant is running hard and looking like a premiere back again. He's worthy of a start from here on out, even against a tough Titans defense in two weeks. Rodgers continues to play inspired and is doing a better job of spreading the ball among different receivers. That’s good news for Packers fans and Rodgers owners, but it's not great for any Green Bay WR owners. The normally ultra-productive Greg Jennings only had three receptions for 32 yards against Indy.
