A lot of people were worried about where Andrew Luck was headed heading into the season, but it looks like he’s in a pretty good spot heading into next year.
The Indianapolis Colts quarterback has been a force for the past two seasons, completing a combined 61.2 percent of his passes for 1,817 yards, 13 touchdowns and seven interceptions, with a touchdown-to-interception ratio of 2.6.
Luck has thrown for 4,942 yards and 28 touchdowns with a passer rating of 118.6 over the past five seasons.
As of Sunday, Luck is just two interceptions shy of tying his career high for completions and passing yards, which are two of the most impressive statistics in NFL history.
In the last six years, only one other quarterback has passed for at least 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns in consecutive seasons: Peyton Manning in 2010 and 2011.
Luck is currently the only quarterback to accomplish that feat in his first two seasons in the league, and it’s something that is only possible because he’s been able to use his legs and legs of a high-powered offense to keep defenses honest.
Luck threw for nearly 2,000 total yards in each of his first three seasons with the Colts, and his completion percentage (67.2) is the highest in the NFL over that span.
Even with his lack of touchdowns, Luck has had a solid supporting cast of receivers to help him keep defenses guessing.
Luck leads the league with 17 touchdowns to just two picks, while the rest of the receiving corps is averaging just under eight receptions per game.
He’s also got one of the best offensive lines in the game, thanks to the addition of second-year left tackle Jake Fisher, who was acquired from the San Francisco 49ers in a trade for wide receiver Vance McDonald.
Luck also has the third-best completion percentage in the entire league at 67.7, which would be good enough to lead the NFL in that category, if not better.
If Luck keeps the production up and the receiving play continues to improve, he could be an elite quarterback for years to come.
