INDIANAPOLIS - Trailing 31-10 at the half, the Indianapolis Colts needed more than a little luck.

They needed Andrew Luck to do his thing.

Luck has made a name for himself in engineering comebacks in his two seasons in the NFL.

What he accomplished in the second half of Saturday’s wild shootout against the Kansas City Chiefs, though, was right off the charts.

With his team trailing 38-10 early in the third quarter, Luck rallied his Indianapolis Colts to a wildly improbable 45-44 wild-card triumph over a shocked and crushed Kansas City squad in the opening playoff game of the season.

It was unbelievable, really, and no doubt caused a shock of disbelief in Kansas City, one that could be measured in the Richter scale.
