In 2012, Andrew Luck (339-of-627 passing for 4,374 and 23 TDs) had six 300 games, the NFL rookie record and also set league rookie marks in attempts and yards. 

 

Luck (23) was one of a handful of rookie quarterbacks to throw 20 or more touchdown passes (26, Peyton Manning, 1998; 26, Russell Wilson, 2012; 22, Charlie Conerly, 1948; 21, Cam Newton, 2011; 20, Dan Marino, 1983; 20, Andy Dalton, 2011, 20, Robert Griffin III, 2012).

 

Luck took every snap in 2012 (1,109) and took the first 1,364 of his career before sitting down at Jacksonville on 9/29/13 with a 34-3 lead.  His 1,364 consecutive snaps rank among the best accomplished by Indianapolis Colts quarterbacks (1,631, Peyton Manning; 1,590, Manning (a career-opening total); 1,459, Manning; 1,400, Manning; 1,205, Manning; 1,088 Manning).

 

In 2012, Luck produced seven wins in fourth-quarter or overtime fashion, tying the NFL seasonal record done six other times, including in 1999 and 2009 by Manning.  His seven in a single season tied for the most by a veteran or rookie QB since at least 1970.  With his sixth comeback win, he snapped the record he shared with Ben Roethlisberger (2004) and Vince Young (2006).  The comeback performances came against Minnesota, Green Bay, at Tennessee, Miami, at Detroit, vs. Tennessee and at Kansas City. 

 

The NFL post-merger record for rookie starting wins is 13 by Ben Roethlisberger in 2004.  Matt Ryan and Joe Flacco had 11 in 2008.  Luck and Russell Wilson had 11 in 2012, while Kyle Orton had 10 in 2005. 

 

Luck had his eighth fourth-quarter comeback win vs. Oakland 9/8/13, the most ever accomplished by an NFL QB in the first 17 games of a career.  He posted his ninth against Seattle 10/6/13, the most through the first 21 games by any QB drafted first overall that began a career since 1970.  He earned a 10th at Houston on 11/3/13.

 

With 10 game-winning drives in the fourth quarter or overtime in the first two seasons of a career since 1970, Luck is the NFL leader in that category, ahead of Jake Plummer (9), Russell Wilson (8) and Peyton Manning (8).

 

With a record of 19-9 in his first 28 games, Luck reached 15 wins faster than any QB drafted first overall since 1970.  Through 20 games, he had been tied with John Elway (1983) with a 14-6 mark.  The most wins among QBs in their first two career seasons since 1970 are 22 by Ben Roethlisberger and Russell Wilson, 21 by Dan Marino and 20 by Joe Flacco and Matt Ryan.

 

Luck has 7,167 passing yards and the most accomplished through the first two seasons of a career in history are 7,920 by Cam Newton, 7,874 by Peyton Manning, 7,294 by Dan Marino, 7,067 by Andy Dalton and 7,049 by Drew Bledsoe.

Luck had a career-best streak of 164 straight passes without an interception end vs. Miami 9/15/13.

 

Luck’s 19t run vs. Oakland tied the 7th-longest ever done by a Colts QB (43t, George Taliaferro vs. Rams 11/22/53; 33t, Peyton Manning at Buffalo, 11/4/01; 32t, Bert Jones at NYJ 10/20/74; 29t, Chris Chandler vs. NYJ 11/6/88; 21t, George Shaw vs. SF 11/27/55; 20t, Marty Domres vs. NYJ 11/16/75; 19t, Jones at Buffalo 11/9/75).

 

Under Luck, the Colts have opened games three times with two TD drives – 10/21/12 vs. Cleveland; 11/18/12 at New England; 9/8/13 vs. Oakland.

 

With a TD pass vs. Miami 9/15/13, Luck had nine straight games with a scoring pass, but the streak ended at San Francisco.

 

Antoine Bethea had 11 tackles vs. Oakland, eight vs. Miami, six at San Francisco, five at Jacksonville, 10 vs. Seattle, eight at San Diego, nine vs. Denver, eight at Houston, five vs. St. Louis, four at Tennessee, eight at Arizona and seven vs. Tennessee and has 903 for his career.  Bethea is one of six Indianapolis Colts to top 700 career tackles (1,149 Jeff Herrod; 1,052, Duane Bickett; 785, Jason Belser; 754, Gary Brackett, 744, Eugene Daniel).

 

Bethea ranks first among active NFL safeties with 92 consecutive starts.

 

Kicker Adam Vinatieri has scored in the last 157 consecutive games in which he has played.  He has scored in 111 straight with the Colts and ranks just behind Mike Vanderjagt (118) for the longest franchise streaks. 

 

His 53-yard field goal with eight seconds left against Minnesota on 9/16/12 was the 24th game-winning kick of his career.

 

Since 1999, Vinatieri has hit 21-of-25 game-tying or go-ahead FGs in the last four minutes of a game, an 84 percent success rate.  He has made his last seven attempts in those situations, hitting from 23, 47, 51, 43, 50, 53 and 37 yards.

In 2012, linebacker Jerrell Freeman topped the club in tackles in each of the first seven games before the streak ended.  Freeman topped the team in tackles in 13 games.  Freeman (203) became the second Colts player in the Indianapolis era to have a 200-tackle season, and his total is the all-time best (200, Jeff Herrod, 1994; 192, Cliff Odom, 1985).

 

In 2013, Freeman has led the team in tackles against San Francisco, Jacksonville, Seattle, Denver, St. Louis, Arizona and Tennessee and has topped the team in stops in 20-of-28 career games.  He has reached double digits in tackles in 22-of-28 games (13, 2012; nine, 2013).

 

Freeman had his first career multiple-sack game with 2.0 vs. Miami 9/15/13, the fourth undrafted free agent in the Indianapolis era to have a multiple-sack outing (2.0, Scott Virkus vs. Detroit 9/22/85; Tony Siragusa at Seattle 9/4/94; Eric Foster at Jacksonville 12/17/09).

 

Freeman had a strip-sack vs. Miami 9/15/13 and at San Francisco 9/22/13.  With sacks in consecutive games, he became the first Colts LB other than Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis to do so since Rob Morris in 2004.

 

In 2012, T.Y. Hilton had five 100-yard games in 2012 to set the club rookie record.   With 50-861, 7 TDs, Hilton was the 9th Colts rookie with 50 receptions (65, Bill Brooks, 1986; 64, Marvin Harrison, 1996; 62, Edgerrin James, 1999; 60, Austin Collie, 2009; 52, Andre Rison, 1989; 52, Marshall Faulk, 1994; 50, Randy McMillan, 1981; 50, Jerome Pathon, 1998).  His yardage total ranked 2nd for Colts rookies (1,131, Brooks; 836, Harrison), and his touchdowns tied for third-most (8, Brooks and Harrison; 7, John Mackey and Collie).

 

He was 6-124 vs. Miami 9/15/13 for sixth career 100-plus game, and it marked a career-high yardage total.  Hilton set a new career high with 140 yards on five receptions vs. Seattle 10/6/13, including a 73-yard scoring reception. 

 

Hilton had an eighth career 100-yard game with 7-121, 3 TDs at Houston 11/3/13.  He became the 11th Colts player, the seventh WR, with 3 TDs in a game, with scores of 10, 58 and nine yards.

 

Hilton’s ninth 100-yard game was vs. St. Louis 11/10/13 with 7-130. 

 

With nine 100-yard games in his first two seasons, Hilton is on the best pace in franchise history for the most such efforts in that span (9, Hilton; 3, Brooks; 3, Anthony Gonzalez; 3, Rison; 3, Reggie Wayne; 3, Terrence Wilkins).

 

Hilton’s nine 100-yard games rank among NFL leaders since 2012 (18, Calvin Johnson; 12, Brandon Marshall; 11, A.J. Green; 11, Andre Johnson; 11, Demaryius Thomas; 9, Hilton; 9, Victor Cruz; 9, Vincent Jackson).

 

Hilton’s 12 TD receptions have covered eight, nine, 10, 14, 29, 36, 40, 43, 58, 61, 70 and 73 yards (451 total) for an average of 37.6 per TD reception.  His 75-yard TD punt return brings his career average per touchdown (526 yards) to 40.5 yards.

 

Since 2012, Hilton (5) ranks only behind Adrian Peterson (6) and A.J. Green (6) for most touchdowns 50 yards or longer.

 

Hilton’s 12 TD receptions in his first two years rank among the best achieved in that span in Colts history (15, Collie; 14, Harrison; 12, Hilton).

 

Hilton was the 13th receiver taken in the 2012 draft.  There were four selected in the first round, five in the second and three in the third before he was taken with the 92nd choice. 

 

Against Buffalo on 11/25/12, Hilton scored on a 75-yard punt return and an eight-yard reception to become the first Colts player to record such scores in the same game in franchise history. 

 

Cornerback Darius Butler (two interceptions/one fumble recovered) had three takeaways at Jacksonville on 11/8/12, one shy of the Indianapolis era club record for the most by a player in a game (4, Eugene Daniel, 3 interceptions/1 fumble recovered vs. Green Bay 10/27/85; 3, Leonard Coleman, 3 ints. vs. New Orleans 10/12/86; 3, Mike Prior, 3 ints. vs. Phoenix 12/20/92).

 

Butler had a 41t interception return at Jacksonville 9/29/13 to move among the club leaders in career scoring interception returns (5, Jerry Logan; 4, Bobby Boyd; 3, Milt Davis; 3, Andy Nelson; 3, Ray Buchanan; 3, Eugene Daniel, 3, Jason Belser; 3, Kelvin Hayden).

 

Linebacker Robert Mathis (107.0) had an eight-game sack streak end at New England on 11/18/12.  It tied his personal-best.  In 2005, he set an NFL record with sacks in eight consecutive games to start a season.  He opened 2013 with sacks in the first five games. 

 

Mathis has 26 career multiple-sack games, including three three-plus sack games.  Mathis has five of the 18 double-digit sack seasons in club history.

 

Mathis had a four-game streak with multiple sacks 9/15/13 vs. Miami (2.0), 9/22/13 at San Francisco (1.5), 9/29/13 at Jacksonville (3.0) and 10/6/13 vs. Seattle (2.0).  He had 2.0 sacks vs. Denver 10/20/13 and vs. St. Louis 11/10/13.  Mathis was named AFC Defensive Player-of-the-Month for October with 11 tackles, 4.0 sacks, two forced fumbles and one pass defensed.  Mathis also won the honor in September 2010.
