In his second outing things went much smoother for Andrew Luck in his home debut. He was more accurate, decisive, and it is not certain how much of this can be explained by playing the Minnesota Vikings instead of the Chicago Bears.  Regardless, Luck showed everything that made him the No. 1 pick in the draft. After a near-flawless first half by Luck, the Colts blew their 20-6 lead in the fourth quarter. He took over with just 0:31 left and became the 7th rookie quarterback since 1960 to lead a game-winning drive in his team’s first or second game.  It was no ordinary drive either, as this was just the 33rd time a team had 0:31 left or less on the clock and completed a scoring drive on their way to a win. The one-minute drill compares most favorably to one Peyton Manning led in 1999 at Miami. Go figure.  We have a lot more tables to look at this week now that we can compare Luck to someone. That would be…himself from last week.  Drive No. 1 Time: 7:48 left Score: Down 3-0...
