The mojo from Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck’s beard appears to be gone. With the Colts looking to get off to a hot start on Saturday night in their divisional round match up with the New England Patriots, Luck made a poor decision that led to the Colts being in an early hole.

Luck threw the ball behind his intended receiver, which went right into the arms of Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard, who returned the ball deep into the redzone.

Shortly after the interception and return, the Patriots were able to punch the ball into the endzone with a touchdown from running back LeGarrette Blount to give New England the early 7-0 lead.

This is not the kind of start that the Colts had in mind.
