ANDREW LUCK DEBUTS IN “PRIME TIME”
Tue, 13 Nov 2012 01:30 AM EST

Another win, another week, another reason for the Indianapolis Colts to like Andrew Luck.

A few days after setting a rookie record, Luck ran for 2 touchdowns and showed he could tackle and take a tough hit in a 27-10 victory over the Jaguars.

Luck help the Colts (6-3) win their 4th successive game and snap a 3-game losing streak in the series.

”This win was big,” Luck related. ”We wanted to keep our winning streak going. … This is a good step in the right direction, but nobody looks back at the indisputable fact that you were 6-3 in the middle of the season. It’s what we do at the end of the season.”

Coming off an NFL rookie record 433 yards passing against Miami Dolphins, Luck wasn’t quite as sharpened in his prime-time debut. He didn’t need to be, either.

Luck completed 18 of 26 passes for 227 yards, with an interception and a fumble. But he was unstoppable near the end area, juking defenders with 2 pump fakes and scrambling for a 5-yard score on one drive and then plunging across the goal line on 4th down on the next possession.

Equally impressive was his toughness.

Luck made a diving tackle on safety Dawan Landry following an interception. Luck also bounced right back up after Landry hammered him as he started a slide late in the game. Landry was flagged and surely will be fined.

Luck’s tackle, though, got all the attention. Football odds

”Not much to contemplate I guess,” Luck announced. ”It was football instincts. You see the guy on the other team with the ball, you are going to try and tackle him. If I’m going to be the person that turns the ball over, I am going to at least try and stop the guy.”

That might not be the wisest call for the team’s franchise player.

”I was afraid he was going to try and take his head off,” interim coach Brice Arians related. ”He gets ticked off when he throws those interceptions.”

There wasn’t much else for Indy to be upset about.

Indianapolis scored on 3 consecutive possessions in the 1st half, opening up a 17-0 lead that started emptying the stands at EverBank Field.

That was plenty against the Jacksonville Jaguars (1-8), who have the league’s worst offense and played a 3rd game without star RB Maurice Jones-Drew.

Jacksonville Jaguars has lost 6 in a row since a come-from-behind victory at Indianapolis. Blaine Gabbert hit Cecil Shorts III for an 80-yard touchdown in the last minute, stunning the Colts.

There wasn’t any drama in the rematch.

The Indianapolis Colts essentially sealed the victory when Darius Servant stepped in front of Gabbert’s pass in the flat and went untouched for an 11-yard interception return for a touchdown early in the 3rd quarter.

”It was an anticipated thing,” Butler said. ”It was something I had seen those guys do on film, so I was ready for it and jumped in front of him. I knew they wanted to get the ball out fast. I was prepared for it and went for it, great feeling.”
