(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By MICHAEL MAROT AP Sports Writer Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is growing up. His completion percentage has taken a hit over the past few weeks and his quarterback rating is nowhere close to what he would like. But after averaging more than one interception per game through the first 15 weeks of the season, the No. 1 overall draft pick has gone almost 3 1/2 weeks, 95 consecutive passes, without throwing a single pick. That's the longest streak of his rookie season. Luck can't pinpoint what's changed - only the results, which he wished came sooner. The Colts (11-5) are hoping the turnaround has come in time to make a deep run through the playoffs, starting with Sunday's game at Baltimore. --- Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL

Reggie Wayne thinks Bruce Arians is the coach of the year: “It could have been so easy for us to just fall off the wagon”

It comes down to health: A rejuvenated Ravens team should beat a banged-up Colts team...

Everyone's talking about the Andrew Luck factor and the Chuck Pagano variable in this one, but I think the Ravens have trumped all of that with their intelligent rationing of the physical health of their best players.
