Seattle completely outclassed early. Indianapolis controlled the movement late.
The Seahawks blocked a punt that led to a safety.
In return, the Colts blocked a field goal and turned it into a 61-yard TD.
Seattle built a 12-0 lead before the Colts could make a first down.
Indianapolis’ rally was ignited simply by Luck’s 78-yard TD pass to T. Y. Hilton — who also had the biggest game of their young career.
Backwards and forwards it went.
Throughout the game, the quarterbacks provided the sizzle as advertised.
Wilson played a lot like you’d visualize Harry Houdini would, slipping out of at least a half-dozen sacks to foil one blitz after another.
Sometimes he held running, other times he stopped to throw.
It additional up to 210 passing yards, 102 rushing yards and probably a few headaches.
Luck (16 of 29, 229 yards, 2 TDs, 0 INTs) took a while to heat up, but by crunch time he was undeniably sizzling.
On a 14-play, 86-yard drive that extended halfway into the fourth quarter and proved to be the game-winning march, Luck made clutch system throws on back-to-back third downs — to Hilton and Reggie Wayne — to keep the stores moving.
To finish the drive, Luck found Wayne to get 19 yards, setting up Donald Brown’s 3-yard TD run.
Then Luck made one of their best passes of the day for the conversion. He rolled deep right, ala Wilson, then found Wayne reducing across the middle of the end zone. David dove to the turf to carry in the low throw that barely escaped Brandon Browner’s finger tips.
It was that close up.
