Luck completed 21 of 29 pass attempts for 285 yards, three touchdowns and one interception during Sunday's 29-26 win over the Jaguars. Luck was sharp against one of the league's best pass defenses, completing 72 percent of his passes while connecting with eight different receivers. He threw a pair of touchdown passes to Eric Ebron and added another to Mo Alie-Cox, pushing his TD:INT to 10:1 over the last three games. Luck now has at least three touchdown passes in each of his last six games and has helped his team win three straight to get back near .500 for the season. He'll look to continue what's been a tremendous bounce-back campaign next Sunday against the Titans.
Luck completed 23 of 43 passes for 301 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions during Sunday's 42-34 loss to the Jets. He added seven yards on two runs. Luck brought the Colts within a score early in the fourth quarter with a quick two-yard flag pass to Eric Swoope. The Jets responded with three field goals and the Colts didn't strike again until it was too late. To be sure, Luck helped place Indy in a hole with two early interceptions, including a pick-six on the second offensive play of the game. Despite warts in the form of five interceptions, Luck has been hot in recent contests, with 11 touchdown passes and 1,130 yards over the past three weeks. He next takes on a middle-of-the-road Bills pass defense in Week 7.
Luck completed 38 of 59 passes for 365 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions in the Colts' 38-24 loss to the Patriots on Thursday. Luck matched Tom Brady pass for pass, and his final numbers were actually slightly better than the Patriots quarterback. However, that still added up to a two-touchdown defeat for the Colts, which saw New England storm back for a pair of scores in the fourth quarter after Luck had pulled Indianapolis to within 24-17 with a 13-yard touchdown pass to Erik Swoope. Luck did comfortably exceed the 300-yard mark for the second consecutive game, and his YPA was once again over 6.0 after a pair of contests where he'd checked in under that figure. Luck's longest completion was still a relatively modest 28 yards Thursday, but his 7:2 TD:INT and 829 passing yards over the last games undoubtedly has fantasy owners pleased. He'll look to stay hot against the Jets in a Week 6 battle.
Luck completed 40 of 62 passes for 464 yards, four touchdowns and a two-point conversion during Sunday's 37-34 loss to Houston. He added 11 yards on the ground and fumbled twice, losing one. Down eight with less than three minutes to go, Luck marched the Colts down the field for 85 yards, capping it off with a nine-yard strike to Nyheim Hines and a fake-hand-off drop pass to Chester Rogers for the two-point conversion. Indy hasn't been bashful about letting Luck air it out, as he has attempted at least 40 passes in three of four games and has averaged 46.5 attempts per game. That's all well and good, but ending a game with 41 rushing yards, 11 of them from Luck, isn't exactly the way to keep a franchise quarterback with past shoulder trouble on the field. In the meantime, Luck takes on a New England team Thursday that bounced back in a big way in Week 4.
Colts head coach Frank Reich said the Colts turning to Jacoby Brissett to throw a 60-yard Hail Mary attempt at the end of Sunday's loss at Philadelphia had nothing to do with Luck's health. "It had nothing to do with that (a fear of hurting his shoulder). It was everything about getting the ball into the end zone," he told Bob Kravitz of WTHR Channel 13 in Indianapolis. Both Luck and Reich said that Brissett has a stronger arm, and Reich added Luck would have stayed in the game if the throw was closer. The Hail Mary fell incomplete in the loss. Luck has looked back to full speed so far this season, so fantasy owners shouldn't be worried about him not throwing one long desperation pass.
