How is this for creepiness?

The first play of Andrew Luck’s career was a 63-yard touchdown pass to running back Donald Brown on a screen play during Sunday’s 38-3 shellacking of the St. Louis Rams.

Fourteen years ago, Peyton Manning also completed the first pass of his career for a touchdown pass to Marvin Harrison during a preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks.

In less than a half,#12 was 10/16..188 yards,2 TDS…142.7 QB rating..WOW..yes it's only the beginning in pre-season,but OH,WHAT a BEGINNING!—

Based off of Twitter, it’s pretty obvious that Colts owner Jim Irsay is excited about the new era of Indianapolis Colts football.

Brown’s touchdown was a part of a productive start for the rookie quarterback from Stanford. Luck completed 10 of 16 passes for 188 yards and two touchdowns in Indy’s preseason opener.

As a point of reference, Manning threw 26 touchdowns and 28 interceptions during his 3-13 rookie campaign with the Colts in ’98.
