Andrew Luck, Reggie Wayne start fast for Colts in Jacksonville

AP

As they usually do, the Jaguars have started slowly on Thursday night in Jacksonville.

Colts quarterback Andrew Luck targeted Reggie Wayne with eight of his first nine passes — and Wayne caught six of them for 64 yards — as Indianapolis jumped out to an early 10-0 lead in Jacksonville.

The Colts’ first scoring drive covered 44 yards on seven plays and ended with a 31-yard Adam Vinatieri field goal. Their second scoring drive went 66 yards in eight plays, was aided by a roughing the passer penalty that negated a Luck interception, and ended with Luck running for a five-yard touchdown.

Unless things change, the Colts are on their way to a win that will give them a surprising 6-3 record through nine games. And the Jaguars are on the way to another loss that will drop them to an unsurprising 1-8.

  1. Jacksonville is the worst team in the league. That said, I like what I see out of Gabbert. He makes changes at the line, he’s accurate. The problem is, he has nothing-nada-zilch around him. They may have the worst OLine in the game. Its a shame b/c Smith tried to address this a couple of years back with Monroe & Britton. Nothing he has done as a GM seems to work out, gotta go.

    On D Paul Posluszny is a beast, not much else

  2. wow worst ref crew of the season… correct me if I’m wrong but aren’t all scoring plays reviewed? that was a garbage touchdown…

  3. not a Jacksonville fan, but… no review on Luck’s 2nd TD? Thought all TDs were reviewed. It didn’t look like he made it but the “far” sideline official saw it?

  4. Hmm…watch my hometown Bulls or the future of the NFL?

    Easy choice for me. Andrew Luck is incredible.
    This is the first real game I get to watch Luck (against the Bears can be considered a fluke because it was the freakin Bears D)

    I think Luck is already a star and will be his whole career.

  5. They got stuffed on 4th down and the refs gave a TD… jags are so bad… there luck also sux…

  6. That second td wa most definately a td, nearly the entire ball was past the white! Watch again, un biased though. Not even a question.
    Might help to not listen to mayock. The dude is lost

  7. Yah,Jacksonville head coach, thows everything except the kitchen sink,(oh he threw that too)except the red flag to protest a call.

  8. Is there a reason why people insist on claiming only luck or rg3 can be good one at a time? They both are going to be great. That said I’ve seen questionable calls take 4 tds of the board for rg3 while luck seems to get the breaks.

  9. @huskersrock1 Child please, the Colts have won games that they should have Won, and gotten their butts handed to them when they played teams that were better than them…

  10. not one thing about the real refs blowin calls huh?….
    the luck td was a td but still should have been reviewed AND shorts catch was a catch he then stepped out then lost control….terrible

  11. I have no interest if any of these teams win tonight..That being said the Jags might be the worst team Ive ever seen and the Colts are really not that good either.This may be one of the most boring games I have ever seen..Sorry but the truth hurts.

  12. Dont get the Luck thing either hes good but no superstar by far..180 yards passing in the fouth quarter?Somewhere Alex Smith is shaking his head..Two picks and a fumble?….Really?

  13. I actually bought in to the Luck/RG 3 were even picks this past spring.
    I’ve never been so wrong.
    Luck is so far ahead it isn’t even discussed anymore.
    Andrew has turned the worst NFL team from 2011 completely around.
    Meanwhile the Redskins are mired in mediocrity – as always.

  14. You guys can’t see whats happening? Sandy was the story last week. Refs did everything possible to hand the Giants that game. Tonight is Luck’s first nationally televised game. Chuckstrong is trending. Refs have been calling this game for the Colts all night. It’s all about the story line these days. Also Goodell has been present at both games. Goodell is going to make a lot of money for NFL. Unfortunatly at the cost of quality competition. I am not a Jags fan btw. Just a disgruntled football fan. Wow as I watch this game it just gets worse. I didnt realize you cant block down field anymore. Then the chop block call? Keep ignoring these garbage refs media. I get it. Dont bite the hand that feeds you.

    So where are all the posters that said RGIII would be so much better than Luck?
    __________

    Probably spending time with their friends and families, because they don’t troll this site around the clock like the “We Hate Griffin Society”. That said, they are both phenomenal young quarterbacks, and just because Ryan Leaf flamed out so hard 14 years ago doesn’t mean that one will have to be good and one will have to be awful.

    The point is that the Redskins are a bad team and the Colts are a bad team, and now they both have very impressive young quarterbacks who seem more than capable of leading their franchises back to greatness.

    When bad teams get better, the whole NFL gets better. It’s in everyone’s best interest for both Luck and Griffin to be superstars. Hoping one of them does badly so your own quarterback looks better in comparison is childish, stupid, and, in the long run, hurts the sport itself.

    I have to disagree on Gabbert being accurate, SOME of his passes are, but most aren’t even in the right zip code.

  17. that’s how the media works, they blow things out of proportion until they get their way, so they won’t put these refs under the microscope like they did the replacements, just like how they did with Obama and him getting re-elected… the media is way to powerful that helps control what they want…
