The Colts upset the Green Bay Packers in storybook fashion on Sunday, providing hospitalized head coach Chuck Pagano with a precious memory.

In an email to The Indianapolis Star, Colts head coach Chuck Pagano gushed about the Colts' performance in a thrilling 30-27 win over the Packers, and the unwavering support of the 12th man [emphasis mine].

I am so proud of this team, staff, organization, fans, community etc.

(I) could go on and on.

I am the luckiest man in the world. I said it when I got this opportunity several months ago and I am repeating it now. The 12th man came through big time along with the TEAM THAT REFUSED TO LOSE.

FAMILY!!!! TEAM TEAM TEAM. COMMUNITY.

So while Pagano sits in a hospital room, only miles away from Lucas Oil Stadium, he gives us all a few words of pride, passion and praise. Coach P is truly a source of inspiration, not just for the Colts, but for the entire NFL. His impact on this team is simply undeniable.

Enjoy this win, Coach. It was all for you.
