(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) — Here’s looking at you kid. Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts (10-5) clinched a playoff berth on Sunday after they held onto beat the Kansas City Chiefs (2-13), 20-13.
The rookie quarterback broke Cam Newton’s record of 4,051 yards single-season passing record for a first-year starting quarterback in the second quarter. Luck also recorded his seventh game-winning drive of the season with his touchdown pass to Reggie Wayne late in the fourth quarter.
“Offensively we struggled and then put together a drive like we have all year,” said interim head coach Bruce Arians. “Don’t know why it comes out this way every week, but I’m so glad it does.”
The Colts will get their head coach Chuck Pagano back in the office on Monday. Pagano has been sidelined since undergoing treatment for leukemia.
Luck finished 17 for 35 with 205 yards and the touchdown pass to Wayne.
