Andrew Luck picked up the biggest win of his short NFL career on Sunday afternoon, leading the Colts to a 30-27 win over the Green Bay Packers. Indianapolis fell behind 21-3 in the first half, but Luck remained poised and confident down the stretch as his team improved to 2-2 this season.

The rookie quarterback went 31-for-55 on his pass attempts, throwing for 362 yards and two touchdowns. His lone mistake of the day was an under-thrown fade to Reggie Wayne, which was picked off easily by the Packers cornerback. Luck also made a few plays happen with his legs, rushing for 24 yards and a touchdown late to give the Colts a lead.

Indianapolis has a relatively favorable slate of games coming up. Next week they'll head to New York to take on the Jets, who are without star cornerback Darrell Revis. That game is followed by a home meeting with the winless Browns. The month of October wraps up with a trip to Tennessee to take on the Titans and then a home meeting with the Dolphins opens up November. If Luck is able to continue his strong play, his rookie season with the Colts has the potential to be a very successful one.
