This Sunday could be the day when Andrew Luck finally puts his name on all of the rookie records. He currently has already topped a bunch of rookie records, but Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs will be the day he finishes the rest of them off.
With 74 passing yards, Luck will break Cam Newton’s single season rookie passing record for the most in NFL history by a rookie. He also only needs three touchdown passes to move into second place all-time for touchdown tosses by a rookie and seven to top his predecessor Peyton Manning as the most in NFL history.
Luck can also break all of the Indianapolis Colts’ rookie records but the touchdown passes on Sunday as well.
With 12 pass attempts and 19 completions he will break the Colts’ and the NFL rookie record as well. Look for all of these minus the touchdown pass record to fall Sunday in Arrowhead Stadium.
It’s incredible there’s even a debate on who should win rookie of the year. With all the rookie records being broken by Luck and him having his team in the front for the top wildcard spot in the AFC after a two-win season is remarkable. Robert Griffin III has done none of the above and is no where near the quarterback Luck is.
Luck has openly said all year he could care less about the award or records broke but would trade them for Super Bowl rings if given the chance. With his play and improvement every week, the Colts very well could be in the race for a ring this season.
