So far in the game, Luck has a slight edge over Manning in both the score and stats department – though both have performed well.
Luck has completed 17 of 27 passes for 207 yards and three touchdowns, including this score at the end of the 1st half on an 8 yard pass – to fellow Stanford alum – Coby Fleener:
With the score, the Colts went up 26-14 headed into the locker room at the half.
Manning has completed 10 of 18 passes for 117 yards and two touchdowns so far in the game. He had the ball stripped by Robert Mathis at the goal line, which went out of the side of the end zone for a Colts safety in the 2nd quarter.
Both teams have been pass heavy thus far in the game, with the Broncos running 14 times for just 37 yards, and the Colts running just 13 times for 46 yards.
Down two scores, it’s looking like Manning and the Broncos are going to need some late game heroics – something Indianapolis Colts fans came to know when he was in their team’s uniforms.
