In 2011, Cam Newton broke Peyton Manning’s record for the most passing yards in a game by a rookie. In 2012, Andrew Luck has put the record back in the hands of the Indianapolis Colts in today’s game against the Miami Dolphins at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis by getting 433 yards through the air.
With head coach Chuck Pagano at the game despite still recovering from chemotherapy, Luck put on a spectacular display of quarterback skill as the Colts were fighting to fend off a very game Miami Dolphins team. The final result, a close 23-20 win for the Colts, was almost irrelevant as in the battle of the first round rookie quarterbacks Andrew Luck outshone Ryan Tannehill with a final stat-line of 30/48 for 433 yards and 2 TDs – the scores thrown to veteran WR Reggie Wayne and rookie WR T.Y. Hilton.
