Good old Mike Chappell of The Indianapolis Star delves into the difficulties and benefits of entrusting the offense to a rookie quarterback.
While his completion percentage seems out of character, that's not necessarily the case. In his final two seasons at Stanford, Luck completed 70.7 and 71.3 percent of his passes. But he was a 56.3 passer in his first year as a starter...
Cleveland Browns rookie running back Trent Richardson was adamant that even after suffering a rib injury last week, he would be ready to play today against the Colts. Today that was not the case, and whether it was the injury or non effectiveness, Trent Richardson did not finish the game against the Colts.

Over at Bleacher Report, Nate Dunlevy recapitulated the Colts' win over the Browns with his observations and even some highlight videos. Nate saw it the way many fans familiar with the team saw it:
Following a similar formula to previous encounters with the Vikings and Jaguars, the Colts jumped out to a comfortable halftime lead, and then hung on for dear life.
The Indianapolis Star's Mike Chappell, on the ball as usual, says the difference in this game came down to a few big plays. The Colts struggled (I've almost reached some kind of overuse threshold on that word this season) for long stretches in this game. However, they kept coming up with one more big play to keep their hopes alive against the feisty Browns. Chappell...
Indianapolis Colts officials confirmed after Sunday's 17-13 victory over Cleveland that coach Chuck Pagano has been released from the hospital and is continuing his recovery from leukemia at home. Pagano had watched the Colts' previous two games from his hospital room. The Colts are 2-1 since offensive coordinator Bruce Arians took over as the interim head coach in Pagano...
Since the Browns head coach doesn’t have the mental capacity to make the determination about Trent Richardson’s health it is time for the Browns new owner to step in and force Shurmur to sit T-Rich until he is healthy enough to come back strong. The Cleveland Browns have a very able running back in Montario Hardesty who could step in without even missing a beat. Hardesty has...
Cleveland running back Trent Richardson has exited the game and is questionable to return.Fantasy Spin:Though the Browns haven't announced why Richardson is on the sidelines, we're guessing it has something to do with the rib injury that forced him from last week's game against the Bengals. Montario Hardesty has come on to take his place rushing for 24 yards on six carries.
Cleveland running back Trent Richardson (ribs) will be evaluated on a week-to-week basis, Browns coach Mike Shurmur said according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Shurmur pulled Richardson Sunday after just eight carries but didn't give a definitive reason other than saying, "There were some things happening out there where we weren't having efficiency running the football...
