Andrew Luck is playing in his second AFC playoff game in his second season in the NFL. The questions about if he’d live up to his monstrous expectations in the draft have seemingly been answered for the time being and even when we think we’ve seen it all with Luck, he continues to get creative and surprise not only audiences but defenses as well.
Case in point of this was on a huge fourth down play in the second quarter of the Colts wild card game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Luck and the Colts lined up to first make it appear they were just going to try and draw the Chiefs offsides. As soon as we all figured that, he snapped the ball and looked as if he handed the ball to Trent Richardson. When we all figured that, Luck changed things up but by the time we figured it out, he was long past the Chiefs defense and sprinting down the field.
If you were caught off guard, don’t feel bad as the Chiefs defense never saw it coming either.
