On a rainy and windy South Florida afternoon, I decided to check out the scores to some of the other games since the Dolphins had a bye this week (the bye would wind up beating Miami 17-14 on a last-second field goal, by the way).
Unlike most normal people, I mainly checked out the games featuring the other potential Suck for Luck teams, including Jacksonville (lost to Cincinnati at home), Minnesota (defeated Arizona, and by the way, I think Minnesota finishes with six wins so count them out) and of course the Super Bowl of the other Suck for Luck teams, the Chiefs-Colts matchup.
The first time I checked the score, Kansas City was down 17. This was good for Miami because with Indianapolis getting the victory, and with St. Louis already having their QB of the future and needing to build around him, Miami is now in the pole position for Luck, right?
Wrong—the Colts blew it and lost to Kansas City 28-24. Now Indianapolis stands at 0-5 while Miami's loss to the bye doesn't count on the official NFL record.
It's going to come down to Miami and Indianapolis in the race to Andrew Luck, and here's why.
