INDIANAPOLIS — Andrew Luck did it .
Luck, as he’s finished all through his seven-year NFL careerthat helped the Colts overcome a 14-point shortage and stay in the thick of stuff in the AFC playoff race after he pulled a one-yard touch down pass to receiver Chester Rodgers with less than a minute remaining inside their 28-27 success.
The AFC playoff race is unsure because could be heading into the last week of the season. The Colts could proceed into the sixth seed from the AFC when Pittsburgh loses to New Orleans at a Sunday afternoon game. Luck is 12-0 in his career from the Titans.
Pulling off come-from-behind victories is just nothing fresh for Luck, that is one of the front runners for the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year award.

The Colts secured the come-from-behind success when Malik Hooker intercepted Eli Manning’s finished with 23 seconds left in the game.
The Colts left many wondering whether these were planning in order to pull the win off the direction they played for nearly three quarters.
The Colts looked more as the team which started the entire year 1 5 compared to one that has won eight of their past nine games once they return back to their own bad habits ancient against the Giants.
When there is a method for the Colts to hurt themselves and offer the Giants some confidence they did it.
A lost pass onto the first play of the game. Too many players on the field on defense. Blown coverage on a completion. And this is all in the first half of the game.
Those mistakes aided the Giants to help them leap to a 14-0 lead.
However, the Colts kept chipping off before Luck directed them onto the eight-play, 53-yard game-winning drive which has been helped by two pass interference calls, for example one which placed the Colts on the Giants’ one-yard line.
