In his Captain Comeback Week 5 column for Cold Hard Football Facts, Scott Kacsmar details the Colts' comeback victory in his Drive of the Week, along with a compendium of all other 4th quarter NFL comebacks from Week 5. Scott touches on Reggie Wayne's persevering effort to carry the team from the wide receiver position and finishes up with some perspective on these new era Colts:
When you talk about the 1998 Colts and the start of the Peyton Manning era, many will point to the 24-23 comeback win over the New York Jets as that first quality win to start defining a career.
The Andrew Luck era has that same kind of win now with this comeback, and when you look at the schedule, who is going to say the Colts cannot win 7-9 games this year?
