Luck showed promise against Chicago and should excel in week two at home against Minnesota.
Andrew Luck’s first foray as a starting quarterback in the National Football League went about as well as could be expected, considering he was on the road against the Chicago Bears, one of the NFL’s top defenses.
Yet, Luck held his own. He was not spectacular in the outing and ended up tossing three interceptions compared to just one touchdown. But he also completed 23 of 45 passes for 309 yards, thus without the three interceptions, it would have been a solid fantasy outing for the no.1 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.
However, this week things should get a little easier for Luck as the Colts return home to Indianapolis to take on the Minnesota Vikings, who surrendered 266 passing yards in week one to Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert. Gabbert, the second-year quarterback from Missouri posted a 97.1 passer rating, so Luck should be licking his chops.
The Vikings certainly have a danger...
