Indianapolis Colts road woes continue, fall to Patriots 59-24

  The Indianapolis Colts and rookie quarterback Andrew Luck were no match for Tom Brady and the Patriots after getting pounded 59-24. The game certainly didn’t start out looking like a Patriots blowout. The Colts took their first two possessions and drove down the field for touchdowns on each drive. The Patriots responded in kind to the first Indy score, and at the end of the...

Colts QB Luck eager to bounce back against Bills

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By CLIFF BRUNT Associated Press Bruce Arians says he has plenty to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. ''I'm thankful for the Pittsburgh Steelers letting me go to be here,'' he said. ''Truthfully. I couldn't think of a better place to be at this point in time and to have felt more needed probably in my entire life. So, thank...

The 4 NFL Story Lines That Matter In The 2nd Half Of The Season

By Alex Wong / @steven_lebron You know that the NFL season is headed into the home stretch when you start to check the playoff standings and analyze all the tie breakers that go into deciding the wild card or even division title spots. We’re here now. For the first time this season, I clicked on [...]The post The 4 NFL Story Lines That Matter In The 2nd Half Of The Season appeared...

Pats Luck-y In Win, Unlucky With Gronk

I really need to know. Just what is an “acceptable” win for the New England Patriots? When they win a nail-biter, the cry is that they cannot “close out” teams, they lack “killer instinct” and they don’t “step on the throat” of opposing teams when they have them down. On the other hand, in games like yesterday’s 59-24 rout of the Indianapolis Colts, the cry turns...

Colts' momentum stopped cold by Patriots

It wasn't pretty and the Indianapolis Colts know it. Now all they can do is try to bounce back after an embarrassing 59-24 loss at New England on Sunday. The Colts had four turnovers, and two of Andrew Luck's three interceptions were returned for touchdowns. Interim coach Bruce Arians said the mistakes the rookie quarterback made were just technical errors. ''Both...

Alfonzo Dennard Was Afraid Andrew Luck Was Going to Catch Him During Touchdown Return (Video)

Alfonzo Dennard had just one more Colts player to beat on the way to his first career touchdown in the NFL — the quarterback. The only problem is that quarterback just so happened to be Andrew Luck. Luck tracked Dennard down during his 87-yard interception return, trying to cut off the speedy cornerback along the sideline before reaching the end zone. Luck’s athleticism and speed...

Week 11 Risers and Fallers: Pats Down Luck in Blowout Win, Lose Gronk in Process

After enduring most of the first half of the season without tight end Aaron Hernandez, the Patriots lost the other half of the Boston TE Party for the forseeable future in their 59-24 blowout win over Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts.  Rob Gronkowski torched the Colts for seven receptions for 137 yards and a pair of touchdowns, but broke his forearm on the team's final...

Andrew Luck Continues to Impress in Losing Effort, Showcasing Better Rookie Development Than Peyton Manning

Andrew Luck is not Tom Brady, Drew Brees or Aaron Rodgers — yet. But after Sunday’s shellacking at the hands of the New England Patriots, Luck still has plenty of room left to grow and develop. While his numbers have brought comparisons to all the aforementioned quarterbacks, he is still nowhere near the same caliber of player that each of those developed NFL stars is today....

Andrew Luck Not Able to Match Up With ‘Surgical’ Tom Brady Yet, But Young Quarterback’s Time Will Come (Video)

Sunday’s Patriots-Colts matchup was expected to be a big-time showdown between Tom Brady and Andrew Luck, but the final result shows that the rookie has some work to do before joining that conversation. The Patriots won 59-24 against Indianapolis, improving to 7-3 on the season in large part thanks to some costly mistakes made by Luck. While he certainly showed capable of making...

Patriots Crush Colts, 59-24: Five Things We Learned

This was not supposed to go this way. This was to be a clash of ideologies, styles and mindsets. It was supposed to be a battle royal, two men enter one man leaves sort of thing. It was supposed to be competitive. It was for about 15 minutes.Yesterday, you thought you knew that Andrew Luck had a seat at the table. You thought you knew that the Pats D was ready to be dominated. You...

Brady, Patriots teach Luck, Colts a lesson; Win 59-24

Patriots 59, Colts 24

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts, two old rivals, met Sunday for the first time since Peyton Manning moved on to Denver. Star rookie Andrew Luck is now the Indianapolis quarterback, and he showed some of the special stuff he possesses, but New England pulled away and beat the Colts 59-24 in a wild one. The Patriots tied the franchise record...
