Andrew Luck has been reminded all week about the playoff perils for rookie quarterbacks. He won't be the only Colts player experiencing the NFL's postseason tournament for the first time Sunday in Baltimore. Indianapolis ha 28 players making playoff debuts, and they aren't just all the usual suspects, either. Luck and the most productive offensive rookies, in terms of yards gained receiving and rushing, account for some of it. The list of names who have never played in the playoffs includes fifth-year receiver Donnie Avery, fourth-year cornerback Vontae Davis and backup quarterback Drew Stanton, now in his sixth year and one of two Colts who played on Detroit's 0-16 team in 2008. The other is defensive end Cory Redding. So Indy is relying on its veterans to lead the way. --- Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL
