Indianapolis trailed 21-3 at one point, and Luck had taken a beating. On a day when Robert Griffin was knocked out of the game, Luck wants to remind everyone why he was the first overall pick, playing behind a patchwork offensive line, with one established receiver.
Luck got the ball back for a two-minute drill down by 5, and moved the team down the field, hitting Reggie Wayne for a key pickup with Mathews draped on him, and then finding Wayne again for the go ahead touchdown.
Green Bay had 30 seconds remaining, and got it to a long field goal attempt, but Mason Crosby’s effort to tie the game missed.
Indianapolis 30, Green Bay 27, and the Colts have matched their win total from 2011.
