Andrew Luck came very close to his first NFL winning streak on Sunday, but the Colts were outdone in the final minute by a stunning 80-yard touchdown. It was only the 20th time since 1981 that a team took over in the final minute of the game and scored a game-winning touchdown.
Last week we saw Luck make his first game-winning drive, and this time he was trying for his first comeback. Adam Vinatieri was unusually shaky on a pair of fourth-quarter field goals, but made the second one for the lead that would not last long.
For the 13th time in their history, the Colts lost a game after leading by at least 11 points at halftime.
Drive No. 1
Time: 7:01 left
Score: Down 3-0
Drive: 6 plays, 74 yards for a TD
Just like last week, the opponent took half the quarter to put a field goal on the board. Luck started the game with the longest drop back of his career, taking 6.31 seconds to release the ball, which was also the first time he ever intentionally threw a pass away.
