Luck torched the Chiefs.

After falling behind 38-10, Andrew Luck led the Indianapolis Colts to a 45-44 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs in Saturday’s Wild Card game at Lucas Oil Stadium.

The 24-year-old Luck finished 29-of-45 for four touchdowns and three interceptions as the Colts completed the second biggest comeback in postseason history.

Indianapolis will compete next weekend against the New England Patriots in a divisional playoff game at Gillette Stadium.

Although New England will be favored, the 6-foot-4, 235-pound Luck can dissect the Patriots’ middling secondary and help the Colts advance.

Luck, a classic pocket passer with a quick release, is the premier quarterback prospect to enter the NFL in the past 30 years.

Without a glaring weakness, the 2012 Pro Bowler has tossed 46 scores, versus 27 picks, for 8,196 yards in 32 professional starts.

An amazing athlete, Luck is a true field general who is willing to step into a throw in the face of pressure.

Despite losing Reggie Wayne on October 20, the former Cardinal managed to direct the league’s 14th ranked attack.

Luck, who agreed to a four-year-contract worth $22 million roughly three months after getting drafted first overall in April 2012, will keep the Colts running through at least 2016.

Approximately a week from this evening, don’t be surprised if Andrew Luck overtakes New England and keeps the Colts spiriting toward the swamps of Jersey.
