The Indianapolis Colts take the field Sunday in a rematch game from week 8 that saw the Colts win their first road game at LP Field in the Ryan Grigson/Andrew Luck era.
In that game, the Colts trailed the Titans 13-6 with 10:26 to play. Andrew Luck led the Indy offense on a 14 play, 80 yard touchdown drive that consumed 7:02. That tied the game at 13-13. The Colts defense was able to get a stop, and a punt and an Indy kneel down later, the game went to OT. The Colts won the coin toss, and promptly went 76 yards and scored the game winning touchdown on a 16-yard pass to running back Vick Ballard who dove into the end zone in one of the most memorable plays of the season.
Since that game, things have gone vastly different for the two teams. The win put the Colts at 4-3, and the Titans at 3-5. The Colts have now won 4 out of their last 5 games to get to 8-4, and the Titans have consequently lost 3 out of their last 4 and stumbled to a 4-8 record.
With the different results since their ...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
The Indianapolis Colts have seemingly been blessed. Or, if you prefer, Luck-y.
See what I did there?
In all seriousness though, if you could show me one single person – press or fan – who thought the Colts would be 8-4 with a decent chance at 11 wins in the pre-season, then I could show you a big fat liar. There’s no way anyone, even the most diehard fan (of which I unshamefully...
Quarterback Andrew Luck helped the Colts win their ninth game of the season Sunday against Tennessee but didn't produce fantasy-worthy numbers after tossing four TDs in a miracle victory in Week 13 at Detroit.Fantasy Spin:Luck only had 196 yards on 16-of-34 passing with one touchdown and two picks after throwing for nearly 400 yards last week. He'll try to rebound in a tough...
Andrew Luck, who has often received credit for the Colts’ unlikely success, was (statistically) terrible on Sunday. He completed 16 of his 34 pass attempts, on his way to a 196-yard performance. His lone touchdown pass was accompanied by two interceptions.One of those two interceptions came in the closing seconds of the first half on a hail mary-style pass. The other was a blatant...
INDIANAPOLIS -- Andrew Luck and Adam Vinatieri are at it again.
The rookie quarterback led the Colts back from a 13-point second-half deficit Sunday, and the veteran kicker made a 53-yard field goal in the fourth quarter to give Indianapolis the lead and a 40-yarder a little later to seal a 27-23 victory over Tennessee.

Tennessee Titans (4-8) vs Indianapolis Colts (8-4)
The Titans travel to Indianapolis with revenge on their mind from an overtime thriller with the Colts, in what started Andrew Luck’s run of brilliance over the course of the last few weeks. If you recall, Luck executed a swing pass to fellow rookie Vic Ballard in overtime, who torpedoed his way through tackles to catch the pylon...
It's time for another installment of my pre-Colts game Q&A with Nate Dunlevy. This is our fifth season doing this, and in that time, Nate has moved from his own site 18 to 88 to bigger and better things as Lead Writer for Bleacher Report at their AFC South blog. He's also written two books, including Blue Blood, a history of the Colts in Indianapolis, and Invincible,...
Nick Fairleys horse-collar tackle of Andrew Luck just got a little more costly.
Fairley was fined $15,750 for tackling Luck by his collar after the Indianapolis Colts quarterback scrambled for a key 8-yard gain on fourth-and-2 late in the fourth quarter of the Lions 35-33 loss last week.
The play stopped the clock with 3:22 to play and helped give the Colts enough time to...
Indianapolis Colts rookie QB Andrew Luck is building himself quite a reputation around the league as 'the comeback kid.'
This season, he's orchestrated a whopping six 4th quarter comeback victories. Sunday, we saw Luck (16/34, 196 YDS, 1 TD, 2 INT) in comeback form, but he certainly didn't do it alone.
Down 20-7, Indy came out in the second half determined to...
For another look at the 2012 Indianapolis Colts, I went ahead and watched last week's Colts game. Last week, the Colts went to Detroit and defeated the Lions, 35-33, to improve their record on the season to 8-4. They were down for most of the game, but Andrew Luck threw two touchdown passes in the final three minutes, including the game-winner as time expired, to lift...

Fantasy Rapid Fire: Week 14
We all want to kick some butt this weekend, but a high number of fantasy owners are about to be eliminated from the race to the championship. “Any Given Sunday” is a perfect analogy to not only the chances of an NFL team, but a fantasy team as well. Regardless of this weekends stressful results, I want everyone to promise me that they will start a...
