If you’re looking to see two impressive rookie quarterbacks, flip over to watch Andrew Luck and Brandon Weeden facing off in Indy.

Both quarterbacks led strong opening drives that resulted in touchdowns for their teams. Luck’s Colts lead Weeden’s Browns 7-6, however, because Browns holder Reggie Hodges couldn’t come up with the snap on the extra point try after Greg Little’s touchdown catch.

It was about the only thing to go wrong for the Browns on the drive, which saw them travel 90 yards in 16 plays before Weeden hit Little from 14 yards out. They thought they had a touchdown one play before, but Ben Watson’s catch was wiped out by an offensive pass interference penalty on Josh Cribbs. Weeden was 6-of-8 for 69 yards overall and scrambled 13 yards for a first down on third-and-11 to keep the drive cooking.

Luck also showed off some good footwork early, running for a three-yard touchdown after going 4-for-4 for 67 yards to move the team into scoring position. It was a good start for Luck after a rough day against the Jets in Week Six.

It’s shaping up to be a good offensive day in Indianapolis.

    Weeden leads ALL rookies in passing yds., but hey, thanks for the great headline.

    This is why you still attempt the extra point Peter King.
