Luck completed 30 of 48 passes for 433 yards and two touchdowns in the Colts' 23-20 win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium. The 433 yards set an NFL rookie record.

Luck also tied Manning's rookie record with his fourth game of 300 or more yards passing. And he still has eight games to break the mark.

Luck now has 2,404 yards passing through eight games, another new standard for rookie quarterbacks. The win was also special for the Colts because of a visit from Colts coach Chuck Pagano. Pagano, who has been out s...
