"I did awful, I thought," Pryor said. "Two interceptions, could have won the game, had them on the ropes down there, and that's all that matters."
Instead it was Luck who directed his eighth game-winning drive in the fourth quarter or overtime and the fifth fourth-quarter comeback of his 17-game career.
The Colts answered Pryor's score with an 11-play, 80-yard drive of their own. The series ended with a 19-yard touchdown run by Luck — who finished 18-of-23 for 178 yards and two touchdowns and ran six times for 38 yards and another score.
On the game-winning score, Luck noticed the defense doubling over to Wayne — who made a game-high eight receptions for 96 yards. With the extra safety out of the box, Luck took off in search of a first down on third-and-4. When wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey cut off his route and threw a block in the open field, the quarterback's path was cleared into the end zone.
It was the sort of play the Colts have become accustomed to seeing their second-year quarterback make.
"He inspires everybody in the huddle," Wayne said. "Nothing seems to get him down, even when they took the lead today. We went out there and he said, 'This is going to be the drive, this is going to be the drive to win the game right here.' He is always confident, and he knows what he can do with his ability. We are blessed to have him and have nice strong legs. He plays like he is a 15-year vet."
