The Penalty Flag:
Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne has been one of the best wide receivers in the franchise’s history and 2012 is proving one myth wrong.

Thomas Attal of Bleacher Report has a good story on what he believes Andrew Luck needs to improve upon as the season continues:
Luck has been effective overall thus far, and that comes from avoiding errors—but he has hasn't been perfect. In such a weak offense, each of his errors are magnified.
