Paul Kuharsky of ESPN says that he loved Luck’s pocket presence and mobility during the Vikings matchup, among other notes.
What I liked: Luck is just fantastic on the move, whether it’s a relatively small step up or slide over or a big rollout or run away from pursuit. Obviously he cannot lose 22 yards trying to run out of a late sack and has to surrender at times. But his skills on the move remain underrated. … Four sacks from the defense which held running back Adrian Peterson to 3.8 yards a carry on 16 chances were great defensive developments. … Adam Vinatieri was clutch with the 53-yard, game-winning field goal with eight seconds left.
