Down 14-0 to the Steelers, Luck rallied the Colts to 17 straight points and a halftime lead. After throwing a pick-six to Ike Taylor, the announcers from Sunday Night Football started w...

Andrew Luck drawing sells for $1,500 on eBay

His quarterback prowess aside, we’ve learned two things about Andrew Luck — he can’t sing and can’t draw.
