Sunday's rally wasn't new for Chargers

The Bolts have been surprisingly successful when facing road deficits of 17-plus points. They've won 20.8 percent of those games over the last 15 years, easily the best in the NFL. The Bucs, Colts and Packers are next on the list.

Breaking down Andrew Luck's stellar day

The Colts QB was clutch Sunday -- no surprise given his history -- and his precision on deep throws was particularly impressive. Per ESPN Stats & Info, only Tom Brady posted a higher QBR this week. Week 7's best, worst QBs

ESPN Stats and Information  

Colts QB Andrew Luck completed a career-high 9 passes of at least 15 air yards, the 2nd-most by a QB in a game this season (Ryan Fitzpatrick, 10 at Bills). Luck was also a perfect 7-of-7 for 123 yards and 2 TD off play-action.

A kick for the history books

Adam Vinatieri was deferential in talking about his record-setting 43rd straight field goal. Hear him talk about the field goal that further cements his legacy as one of the league's best placekickers. Listen: Field's-eye view

Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer 

Key stat for Andrew Luck: He was 9-of-12 for 219 yards and a touchdown on throws of at least 15 yards, according to ESPN Stats & Information

Vinatieri credits team for helping him reach FG record (0:20)
Colts power past Titans (1:26)

Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer 

The Colts were without three of their top five receivers, their starting tight end and starting left guard. That didn't matter. They still needed to badly beat the Titans if they expect to have any chance in the AFC South. Quarterback Andrew Luck completed passes to seven different receivers to pick up his 16th victory when trailing in the fourth quarter or overtime in leading the Colts to the 34-26 victory. The Colts have now won 10 straight over the Titans. More importantly they're 3-4 and right back in the mix of things in the AFC South.
