Indianapolis Colts rookie QB Andrew Luck is building himself quite a reputation around the league as 'the comeback kid.'
This season, he's orchestrated a whopping six 4th quarter comeback victories. Sunday, we saw Luck (16/34, 196 YDS, 1 TD, 2 INT) in comeback form, but he certainly didn't do it alone.
Down 20-7, Indy came out in the second half determined to make it a game. Delone Carter cut Tennesee's lead to six on a 1-yard TD run, then the Colts' punter and defense helped out in a big way.
Pat McAfee's 52-yard punt sailed out of bounds, putting the Titans' backs up against the wall at the 1-yard line. QB Jake Locker threw a seemingly harmless short pass that Cassius Vaughn jumped in front of and walked in a 3-yard touchdown.
Adam VInatieri completed the comeback with two field goals, one for 53 yards, then one for 40.
