Maybe this Andrew Luck kid can be special after all.
Luck had an inauspicious start against the Steelers—throwing a pick-six to Ike Taylor and another interception to Cortez Allen that bounced in the air off the hands of fellow rookie T.Y. Hilton.
Fortunately, he was able to turn it around from there, leading the Colts on two touchdown-scoring drives. And after running back Donald Brown scored a rushing touchdown earlier in the quarter, the rookie signal-caller closed off the second half with a one-yard touchdown run on an option play.
Luck showed poise beyond his years, shaking off the early turnovers and bringing the Colts back for the temporary lead.
After two starts, Luck is second in the league with 363 passing yards, third in yards per attempt with 8.9, and has the longest touchdown pass in the preseason—a 63-yard screen pass to Brown in Week 1.
