Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck’s performance left something to be desired, and it clearly had head coach Bill Belichick giddy after the playoff win for the New England Patriots. Luck’s four interceptions sealed the Colts faith in the 43-32 loss, and he admitted after the game that his errors were a large reason for the loss.
“You can’t turn the ball over against good teams,” Luck said after the loss. “I wish I had learned my lesson against the Chiefs a week before, (but) didn’t. The finality of losing a playoff game is very real and it stinks.”
Luck made some borderline amazing throws in the win though, and it appears the future is bright for Indianapolis; their franchise quarterback is fully committed to improving and he clearly takes every loss and interception as a personal assault. It probably also did not help that two of the picks ended up getting run back for six points, which compounded the Colts’ defensive problems. Quarterback Tom Brady was also quite pleased to get six rushing touchdowns from the ground game, which ultimately is what made the score so
For Patriots fans, it is looking like an old-school crash course into Peyton Manning (getting goosebumps yet), but just in a different jersey. Going to be a football kind of day here at Rant Sports, so strap on your helmet and get the appetizers ready. Thanks for reading.
