Andrew Luck had himself a Star Wars type of day in Detroit on Sunday.
Like many of the Colts’ road games this year, it started out with a new hope, as Luck completed the longest pass of his career and then a touchdown to put the team up 7-3. But the evil empire would strike back, as the Lions led 33-21.
Rather than turn the ball over again for another loss, the young Jedi returned just in time with 4:02 left to rescue the Colts and lead one of the best comebacks in team history. He only had to use the Schwartz, taking the offense on drives of 85 and 75 yards.
Here is the full saga of how a quarterback can throw 30 incompletions, three interceptions, and still grow his legend.
Drive No. 1
Drive Stats: 13:32 left (1st quarter), tied 0-0. 3 plays, 1 yard (three-and-out punt).
Speaking of evil empire, the game started for Luck with Ndamukong Suh cashing through the line for a sack and 7-yard loss. Though Luck was not kicked in the groin, it set the offense back. Luck’s bubble screen to Donnie Avery took a weird bounce and hung in the air before falling incomplete. The drive would end with a running back screen to Vick Ballard for eight yards. The Colts had to punt.no comments
