LUCK KEEPS TICKING

Posted Dec 9, 2012

Andrew Luck earned the ninth starting win of his rookie season, tying the Colts’ club record. Luck also directed a record sixth fourth-quarter or overtime comeback win this year. A season of achievement for him finds the rookie citing others.

INDIANAPOLIS – On Sunday against Tennessee, quarterback Andrew Luck directed the Colts to a 27-23 comeback victory.

 

The win moved the Colts to 9-4 and to the cusp of a playoff berth after Indianapolis suffered a 2-14 season in 2011.

 

Luck now has completed 295-of-537 passes for 3,792 yards and 18 touchdowns.  He has set the club rookie record in yardage, surpassing the 3,739 yards produced by Peyton Manning in 1998 and the player against whom many measure Luck as he directs the Indianapolis offense.

 

Luck has produced six wins in fourth-quarter or overtime fashion, snapping the record he shared with Ben Roethlisberger (2004) and Vince Young (2006).  Luck tied those players in helping the club rebound from a late 12-point deficit last week at Detroit.

 

Luck now has tied the club record of nine starting wins by a rookie quarterback set by Chris Chandler (9-4) in 1988.  Joe Ferguson (Buffalo, 1973) and Andy Dalton (Cincinnati, 2011) also had nine wins, while the post-merger rookie record was set by Roethlisberger (13).  Atlanta’s Matt Ryan and Baltimore’s Joe Flacco had 11 rookie starting wins in 2008, while Kyle Orton had 10 with Chicago in 2005.

 

While Interim Head Coach Bruce Arians says a great deal of the club’s success is because of Luck, Luck himself prefers to spread credit.

 

“I’m glad we got the win,” said Luck.  “I don’t think I deserve to look back doing anything.  It would be dishonest to my teammates, and I have to keep focus.  I guess it’s good to get good records.” 

 

The win Sunday came after Tennessee assumed a 20-7 halftime lead.  Luck then directed the Colts on a long touchdown march to cut into the deficit.

 

A 52-yard Pat McAfee punt pinned the Titans at their one, and cornerback Cassius Vaughn had a three-yard scoring interception return seconds later to give the Colts a 21-20 third-quarter lead.

 

After Tennessee moved ahead in the final quarter, cornerback Darius Butler had another interception and Adam Vinatieri added two field goals for the club’s ninth win.

 

Indianapolis overcame an 18-point deficit in beating Green Bay earlier this year.  It erased a 33-21 deficit a week ago at Detroit in winning, 35-33.  Luck enjoys being a part of team using a roster full of players to get victories.

 

“It’s a lot of fun to play on this team.  Guys play football,” said Luck.  “No matter what the score is, they’re out there playing football.  If we put the defense in bad position, more often than not they’ll hold them to a field goal, not a touchdown. There was a great punt by Pat McAfee and the next play it’s six points for us.  We try to hold up our end of the bargain.  It’s a real fun team to play on.”
