Hero: Andrew LuckColts fans have to be happy with Luck. How often does a franchise luck into drafting back-to-back Hall-of-Fame-caliber guys?There was Montana and Young and maybe now Manning and Luck.Indianapolis knew they were getting a guy who would transition into the NFL well, but there was no indication he would be this good so soon. It wasn’t an exceptional game: 26 of 38 for 297 yards, one touchdown, and one interception.It also came off a poor game vs. the Jets last week, but for a second time this year Luck has engineered a game-winning drive.
