Since drafting Andrew Luck, the Indianapolis Colts have already improved dramatically from their disastrous 2011-12 season. 

Luck has, no doubt, been the key that the Colts have needed in order to get back to winning form. Through eight games, Luck has had a 56.5 completion percentage with 10 touchdowns and a total of 2,404 yards.
