Indianapolis Colts Early Frontrunners For Andrew Luck

The Indianapolis Colts might as well have announced their intention to go 0-16 based on their performance in their first week of the 2011 NFL Season. With Peyton Manning out for an extended period of time, the Colts have turned to Kerry Collins, and seem determined to ride him as long as they can. They'd better grit their teeth hard, because he looked atrocious against the Houston Texans.

Collins threw two completions to start the game for a combined eight yards. But then he fumbled the ball twice in a row in his own red zone to set up two easy Texans touchdowns and put Houston up 17-0 on Indianapolis. Indianapolis did not reach the Houston red zone until the start of the fourth quarter, when the Texans were up by 34.  Collins finished 16 of 31 for 197 yards for a meager 5.1 yards per pass; his lone touchdown pass came in garbage time in the 4th quarter.

Put the Colts on an expanding list for future top draft pick Andew Luck.
