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.

Luck completed 29-of-41 passes for 393 yards with four touchdowns and one interception Sunday against the Titans.
Luck was brilliant yet again, throwing four touchdowns for the second game in a row. He connected with nine different receivers Sunday, including touchdowns to Reggie Wayne, Dwayne Allen, Coby Fleener and Ahmad Bradshaw. Not only was it his second straight game with four touchdowns, it was his second straight while throwing four touchdowns to four different receivers (Bradshaw, Fleener and Allen also scored last week). Luck is making his case for fantasy MVP, as he leads the league with 1,305 passing yards and 13 touchdowns. Up next is a Week 5 matchup against a Ravens defense that is 24th against the pass this season.

Luck completed 31-of-39 passes for 370 yards and four touchdowns, while also adding 15 rushing yards in a 44-17 win over the Jaguars on Sunday.
Luck completed passes to nine different receivers, throwing his touchdowns to wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, running back Ahmad Bradshaw and tight ends Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen. In fact, he could have had another touchdown but Fleener let a perfectly thrown ball pass right through his hands in the end zone. Nevertheless, it was a dominant performance that tied his season-high in passing yards while increasing his passing touchdown total to nine in three games. Up next is a tough Week 4 matchup against a Titans defense ranked second in the league against the pass so far this season.

Luck completed 20-of-34 passes for 172 yards, with three touchdowns and an interception in Monday's 30-27 loss to the Eagles. He added 20 yards on four carries.
The Colts led for most of the contest and thus leaned heavily on their running game, with Trent Richardson (21) and Ahmad Bradshaw (13) combining for 34 carries. Luck didn't have one of his better games, notably throwing a red-zone interception with the Colts up by seven points in the final six minutes. The pick should've been nullified by a defensive holding or illegal contact penalty, but Luck still made a risky throw at a time when his team would have hugely increased its win expectancy with a field goal. While it's obviously frustrating for Luck's owners to watch Trent Richardson get 21 carries in an offense with this much talent, the young signal-caller should be in for a nice afternoon in Week 3 against the Jaguars.

Luck completed 35-of-53 passes for 370 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Broncos. He added 19 yards and another score on five carries.
Luck did make some poor throws, but the second interception wasn't his fault, as TE Coby Fleener let a ball go through his hands. After watching the Broncos storm out to a 24-0 lead on four first-half drives, Luck and the Colts scored a touchdown of their own before halftime, and then nearly erased a 31-10 deficit in the fourth quarter. Ultimately, the comeback bid fell just a bit short, though it undoubtedly gave Luck's fantasy owners plenty to be happy about. The young quarterback completed passes to eight different players, notably hooking up with Reggie Wayne for nine receptions and 98 yards on 13 targets. Luck draws a somewhat similar matchup next week, with Colts-Eagles having the look of a shootout, even though the Philly D shouldn't be taken lightly.

Luck was 10-of-18 passing for 103 yards with a touchdown and interception in Saturday's preseason loss to New Orleans.
It wasn't a great outing from Luck as he had several overthrows and a surprising interception on a poorly thrown ball. Most of Luck's errors were unforced, so there's no reason to read too much into his performance. He'll likely skip the final preseason game and be ready for Week 1.

Luck completed 4-of-5 passes for 53 yards in Thursday's preseason opener against the Jets.
Luck played well on his only drive, which ended with a field goal after a botched snap prevented the Colts from having a chance to convert on third down. With Reggie Wayne (knee) sidelined, three of Luck's completions went to T.Y. Hilton, and the fourth to offseason acquisition Hakeem Nicks. Given that Wayne is expected to return by the end of the preseason, Luck should head into 2014 with easily the best supporting cast of his career. While the Colts have no shortage of targets for Luck to throw to, the running game may be a problem area once again. Trent Richardson finished Thursday's contest with just 13 yards on five carries, despite picking up eight yards on his first tote.

ESPN's Colts reporter says Andrew Luck will have "plenty of opportunities to throw the ball" this season.
The insinuation is that stubborn OC Pep Hamilton will relent on his forced power-running obsession and take the shackles off Luck. Beat man Mike Wells says the Colts now simply want to score points whichever way necessary. It should be a no-brainer philosophy change with the interior offensive line in shambles, question marks at running back, improved weaponry in the pass game and Luck ready to emerge as a generational talent.
