What a season it has been for the Indianapolis Colts and their rookie quarterback Andrew Luck. 10 wins in his first season and 4183 passing yards has shown the fans why Luck was the number one draft pick overall in the 2012 NFL draft. Just think, if the Colts can get a win over the 12-3 Houston Texans in the final week of the 2012 season, the message will be loud and clear this Colts team means business. The Colts would go into the play offs with a ton of momentum. The Indianapolis Colts have had an emotional season. First it was their head coach falling ill leukemia. Then it was the ton of support the people not only on the team, but the people in Indianapolis showed towards Chuck Pagano as he battled the disease. This had to be an inspiration to the team that only won 2 games in the 2011 season. What a turn around they have witnessed in Indianapolis this season. The Colts are ready for prime time and if they can get the win this weekend, the team would go into the post season sending the message they are ready. It is going to be a great game Sunday. Luck who already has 21 touchdowns in the regular season will try to add to the total. If Luck can avoid mistakes and the Colts defense can slow down the Houston offense they could very will come away withe the win over the Texans. Time will tell the story and we are only a few days away. With the return of the team’s head coach to the sidelines the Colts just might have the inspiration they need to get their 11th win on the season.
