Andrew Luck: B+
For much of the game, Andrew Luck looked bad. Clearly rattled by the consistent pressure and hits that Houston racked up in the first half, Luck was uncomfortable and rushed in the pocket, and sailed throws and missed reads because of it.
Now, it wasn't all Luck's fault. His receivers dropped numerous passes, and the offensive line was as bad as it's been all year. That being said, Luck wasn't playing well through the first two-and-a-half quarters of this game.
But, midway through the third quarter, Luck found his sweet spot. Boosted by improved pass protection, Luck was able to read the field, step into his throws and accurately hit open receivers down the field in the third quarter and beyond, throwing touchdown passes to T.Y. Hilton on three straight drives to pull ahead 27-24 in the fourth quarter.
Overall, Luck was 15-of-28 for 215 yards and three touchdowns in the second half and only took one sack after taking three in the first half. With the win, Luck earned his 10th game-winning drive and seventh fourth-quarter comeback. Luck's 10 career GWDs are the most ever by a second-year quarterback, while his seven 4QCs is tied with four other quarterbacks for the most in a quarterback's first two years.
