After jumping out to a 14-0 first half lead, the Colts would be left needing Andrew Luck to orchestrate another fourth quarter comeback.
The Colts are 10-1 in one-possession games since Luck’s arrival, including nine straight.
“When you’ve got a guy like that, it sure makes you feel good,” coach Chuck Pagano said. “If there’s a minute left on the clock and we need a score, there’s no one I’d rather have under center than that guy.”
“Nothing seems to get him down,” Wayne said. “Even when they took the lead, he came out there and said, ‘This is going to be the drive to win the game right here.’
“He’s always confident. He plays better than the average second-year quarterback. He plays like he’s a 15-year vet.”
