Indy “in Luck”, make playoffs

The Indianapolis Colts with rookie QB Andrew Luck have made the playoffs with a 20 – 13 win over Kansas City.  Luck has surpassed Cam Newton for most passing yards by a rookie quarterback.

Elsewhere, Dallas fell to New Orleans in OT, 34 – 31.  New Orleans had a pass reception fumbled and recovered at the one yard line in OT and then kicked the winning field goal.  Drew Brees had 446 yards passing.  Now Dallas must win next weekend and await the outcome of the Giants game this afternoon as well as the results of both the Redskins and Giants next week.

Speaking of the Redskins, Washington and RGIII clinched a playoff spot with a 27 – 20 victory over Philadelphia.  Cincinnati appears headed to the post season by virtue of a 13 – 10 win over Pittsburgh.  Green Bay crushed Tennessee 55 – 7, making a strong bid to be the number two seed in the NFC behind the Falcons.  Aaron Rodgers had a huge day, passing for over 340 yards.  New England overcame a bad start to defeat Jacksonville, 23 – 16 in a game marred by interceptions, two by Tom terrific and 3 by Chad Henne for the Jaguars.  San Diego beat the Jets, 27 – 17, not sure who played QB for the Jets, think it was McElroy, does it really matter?  And in Houston, the Vikings upset the Texans 23 – 6 but Adrian Peterson was held to 86 yards rushing and now needs 208 yards next week to break the record.  Will it happen, doesn’t look good but we shall see.

Late day action has Peyton and Denver looking strong with Peyton already passing for 2 TD’s and 221 yards in the first half.  Little bro Eli and the Giants are not faring so well as they trail Baltimore, 17 – 7 in the first half.  Chicago leads Arizona 14 – 3.

More later…
