-On 3rd and 12, the Packers still in Cover 2, put a bit more pressure on Luck as Clay Matthews actually gets his hands on Andrew Luck but Luck manages to shake Matthews off and find Reggie Wayne, who was defended by Charles Woodson, for 12 yards for the 1st down. Wayne simply was utilizing veteran WR moves on a veteran CB in Woodson and Wayne was winning. Luck at this point is ACTIVELY searching for Wayne and consistently FINDING him due to the fact that he’s consistently getting open on Woods and Williams.
-3rd and 7 on the Packers 11 yard line and Andrew Luck takes advantage of the Packers defense once again sitting in Cover 2 and rushes for 8 yards for the 1st down.
-On the go-ahead TD, Wayne is being defended by Tramon Williams but Luck hits Wayne with a quick strike that is too tough for Williams to defend that close to the endzone and Wayne makes him pay by reaching over the goaline for the go-ahead score.
Rookie QB Andre Luck looked anything BUT a rookie on that final drive and took advantage of every hole that the Packers gave him. The Colts offense isn’t a flashy, high scoring, quick strike offense. They are simply coached well and though Luck and this offense makes their share of mistakes, they tend to capitalize on what the opposing defense gives them. As SOLID/GOOD as Luck has been, he still tends to make rookie mistakes as his interception in the 4th quarter shows. 13:10 to go in the 4th, the Colts were trailing 21-19. Luck in the shotgun formation, stares Reggie Wayne down the ENTIRE time and it was SO noticeable that rookie CB Casey Heyward IMMEDIATELY utilized good techniques by using the sideline to his advantage and TURNING his head to make the interception due to the fact that he had already been cognizant of Luck starring down Wayne before turning to run with Wayne. Not a HORRIBLE interception but a rookie mistake nonetheless that veteran CBs will feast on.
