For the second week in a row, Andrew Luck put on a passing clinic. The third year quarterback continued his domination of the AFC South with a dominating 41-17 win over the Tennessee Titans.
Luck was 29-for-41 for 393 yards and four touchdowns. For the second week in a row, Luck completed passes to nine different receivers. Luck is currently on pace to throw 52 touchdowns this season (three shy of Peyton Manning‘s record setter last season).
T.Y. Hilton caught six passes for 105 yards.
Ahmad Bradshaw continued to be a force in the red zone with another touchdown reception off a screen pass. Before this season, Bradshaw had just three receiving touchdowns and he has four through just four games in 2014.
The Colts racked up 498 yards of offense against the Titans, by far the most they’ve allowed all season. The Colts held on to the ball for over 42 minutes of play as well. The offensive line managed to keep Luck upright for the second straight week as the Titans pass rush failed to land a blitz.
Defensively, the Colts were on the receiving end of two unforced turnovers. Kendall Wright had a non-contact fumble while diving for a first down and quarterback Charlie Whitehurst threw a pass too high for wideout Justin Hunter to corrall. Safety Mike Adams picked off the tipped pass and made a nice return.
Adams would finish up the game with another pick with under two minutes to play.
The Colts pass rush managed to come up with three sacks, but too often gave Whitehurst time to find the open man.
Special teams continues to impress this season. Adam Vinatieri remained perfect on the season with two more field goals. Pat McAfee had beautiful onside kick that the Colts recovered early in the first quarter.
The 41 point win marked the first time since 2004 that the Colts had back-to-back 40-point victories.
Up next, the Colts will host the Baltimore Ravens.
