Andrew Luck delivered another nearly flawless effort, besting an equally game Russell Wilson in a 34-28 win over the previously undefeated Seattle Seahawks.
The Colts now are 4-1, with high-profile wins over the Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers. That's some high-quality hay in the barn. With Luck playing at an MVP level, the Colts are good enough to give anyone a game.
Here's what else we learned:
- If you've followed the Colts at all, you know T.Y. Hilton has the potential to be a special player. We might have witnessed his true coming-out party Sunday. Hilton was targeted six times and finished with five catches for 140 yards and two touchdowns. That's a money performance against a stud secondary.

will re-air the Indianapolis Colts' 34-28 win over the Seattle Seahawks from Week 5 on Tuesday, Oct. 8 at 3:30 p.m. ET.
- Wilson has such tremendous awareness, and he always seems to know the exact time to bail on the pocket. He killed the Colts with his legs, posting the first 100-yard rushing game of his career.
- The Seahawks had two 100-yard rushers (Wilson and Marshawn Lynch) and lost. That's pretty hard to do.
- We've reached the point where it's actually a surprise when Trent Richardson finds some running room. He reached the Seahawks' second level on a couple occasions Sunday, but the final line was familiar: 18 carries, 56 yards, 3.1 yards per carry. He hasn't proved his worth to the Colts -- yet.
- Richard Sherman says he's the best cornerback in the NFL -- and he might be right. But Sunday wasn't his greatest performance. Both Hilton and Reggie Waynefound some success against Seattle's All-Pro.
