» Andrew Luck's numbers (151 yards and a TD on 23 attempts) didn't sparkle, but he does so much that doesn't show up in the box score. Luck is already so advanced in completing passes with bodies around him. You can't teach pocket presence, and Luck has it. The Indianapolis Colts were 7-of-11 on third down with Luck in the game.
» This game supported a lot of post-draft analysis. Luck needs to carry the Colts more than Robert Griffin III needs to carry the Washington Redskins. Griffin was buoyed by a strong running game and defense. RG3 didn't have to do too much. He missed a few bombs, but mostly kept Washington on schedule despite only throwing for 74 yards on 17 attempts.
