Luck completed 18-of-34 passes for 187 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception, while also rushing eight times for 18 yards in Sunday's win over the Texans.
Luck's 18 completions were a season-low, and his 187 passing yards were his lowest total since he threw for 172 against the Eagles back in Week 2. However, he still managed to throw two touchdowns for the second game in a row, and he now has nine touchdowns in the last three games. However, he continues to be sloppy with the ball, turning it over six times over that span. The Colts clinched the AFC South with the victory, and while they still have a chance at a top-2 seed, they need the Broncos or Patriots to lose, which should at least keep Luck on the field in Week 16 against the Cowboys, who are allowing the ninth-most passing yards per game this season.

Luck completed 24-of-53 passes for 294 yards, with two touchdowns, a pair of interceptions and lost fumble, in Sunday's 25-24 comeback win at Cleveland. He also rushed the ball five times for 37 yards and a touchdown.
Luck didn't look sharp early on, and trailed for most of the second half, but saved his best for last, throwing a short touchdown pass to T.Y. Hilton with only 32 seconds remaining. He has a good shot to post better numbers next week at home against Houston, which has not defended opposing QBs very well this season.

Luck completed 19-of-27 passes for 370 yards, with five touchdowns and one interception Sunday against the Redskins. He also added four carries for 20 rushing yards, though he lost a fumble.
A week after passing for only 253 yards and one touchdown against the Jaguars, Luck set a season-high in touchdowns, while throwing for exactly 370 yards for the fourth time this season. He has now broken the 300-yard mark in all but two games this year, though he figures to have a tougher time hitting it in Week 9 against a Browns defense allowing the ninth-fewest passing yards per game.

Luck completed 21 of 32 passes for 253 yards and one touchdown, while also rushing eight times for 49 yards Sunday against the Jaguars.
Luck struggled with constant pressure and ended up taking five sacks in the game. He connected with seven different receivers, but only T.Y. Hilton finished with more than 40 yards, and a majority of his production came on a 73-yard touchdown in the third quarter. It was only the second time all season that Luck failed to throw multiple touchdowns, and he failed to extend his eight-game streak with at least 300 passing yards. He'll look to bounce back in Week 13 against the Redskins, who came into Sunday ranked 11th in fewest-passing yards per game this season, though only three teams had allowed more passing touchdowns.

Luck completed 23-of-39 passes for 303 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 42-20 loss to the Patriots. He had three carries for a team-high 15 yards.
While Luck certainly didn't play his best game, the bigger problem for Indianapolis was a complete inability to run or defend the run. The Indianapolis running backs managed a meager four yards on 14 carries, while the Patriots' Jonas Gray single-handedly ran for 199 yards and four touchdowns. The Indy offensive line was quite a bit better in pass protection, as New England recorded six quarterback hits and just one sack. The Colts lost two key offensive pieces in the game, with tight end Dwayne Allen and running back Ahmad Bradshaw both failing to return after suffering ankle injuries. An extended absence for either player would affect Luck, but the Colts don't exactly lack for offensive weapons. And, without Bradshaw, Indianapolis probably wouldn't have much success running the ball, which could lead to even more pass attempts for Luck.

Luck completed 25-of-45 passes for 354 yards and four touchdown in Monday's 40-24 win over the Giants, adding five yards on two carries.
Despite jumping out to a lead, the Colts barely ran the ball in the first half, before going with a more balanced approach after halftime. Luck missed a couple of throws early on, but he was once again mostly excellent, often in the face of pressure. The Colts' willingness to go pass-heavy while playing with a lead is an encouraging sign, not only for Luck's owners, but also for anyone with an interest in seeing the young quarterback break records. He's on pace to make a run at the single-season marks for passing yards, passing touchdowns, completions and pass attempts as the Colts head into their bye.

Luck completed 26-of-45 passes for 400 yards with three touchdowns and a pair of interceptions in Sunday's wild 51-34 loss at Pittsburgh. He also had three carries for 26 yards.
Luck got off to a rough start, having an interception returned for a touchdown early in the second quarter. From there, it was an uphill battle, although Luck finished with great numbers, posting his sixth straight 300-yard passing game. He was missing a reliable target in Reggie Wayne (elbow), but he got a massive boost from rookie Donte Moncrief, who caught seven passes for 113 yards and a touchdown. He'll look to continue his strong season in Week 9 against the Giants.

Luck's excellent season rolls along, as he has now thrown for over 300 yards in all but one game this season, while scoring multiple touchdowns in each week. He has launched himself into the upper-tier of fantasy quarterbacks this season and will take on the Steelers in Week 8.

Luck completed 25-of-44 passes for 370 yards and three touchdowns, with one interception and one lost fumble in Thursday's 33-28 win over the Texans. He added 18 yards on seven carries.
The interception came on a tipped pass, and the fumble was a shotgun snap that appeared to hit the quarterback before he was expecting it. On the other hand, the Texans missed a few chances at interceptions, so it's not as if Luck was perfect. He did, however, do an excellent job of getting the ball to T.Y. Hilton, who finished with a 9-223-1 receiving line. On pace for well over 5,000 yards, Luck has 17 touchdown passes through six games, with another two scores on the ground. He's torched the lousy defenses that he's seen this season, and has more than held his own against the tougher opponents. Next week brings a seemingly difficult home matchup with the Bengals.

Luck connected on 32-of-49 passes for 312 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions during Sunday's win over the Ravens. He also rushed six times for 12 yards and a touchdown.
Luck has now passed for at least 300 yards in four of five games, although his 6.37 yard per attempt average Sunday marked a season-low. Additionally, Sunday was the first time this season that Luck threw more interceptions than touchdowns; however, he did tally his second rushing score of the season. Luck has now led the Colts to three straight wins and will face a quick turnaround before Thursday's AFC South clash in Houston during Week 6.
