Andrew Luck Breaks Cam Newton’s Rookie Passing Record

USATSI_8394487_154224518_lowresOnly a day after Calvin Johnson broke Jerry Rice’s single-season receiving record, the Indianapolis Colts’ Andrew Luck broke the rookie passing yards record set by Cam Newton last season. Newton finished his rookie campaign with 4,051 passing yards, and Luck eclipsed that mark on a 23-yard pass to T.Y. Hilton at the end of the second quarter in their match up against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Luck finished the game with 4,101 passing yards on the year, and will add on to that total in the Colts’ season finale against the Houston Texans next week.

Luck wasn’t exactly stellar in his performance against the Chiefs, but he didn’t turn the ball over — which has been his biggest problem on the road all season. In the Colts 20-13 win, Luck was 17-for-35 with 205 yards and the game winning touchdown to Reggie Wayne with about five minutes left to play in the fourth.

The Colts are now 10-5 on the season and have clinched a postseason berth with their win over the Chiefs just a year after finishing 2-14 in the previous season. It was accepted that the Colts would be rebuilding with Luck in his first year removed from Stanford, but he’s led this team to second place in the division and fifth place overall in the AFC.

Even with the record, it still remains to be seen if it were enough for Luck to win rookie of the year honors as the battle for the award has been at its most competitive for quite some time. At just the quarterback position, the Redskins Robert Griffin III is on the verge of leading Washington to a division title with a 104 quarterback rating. The Seahawks Russell Wilson has Seattle still in the hunt for the NFC West title, and could take the next big step with a win over the 49ers tonight.

Regardless of how the rookie of the year is voted, Luck’s season should be applauded considering no one expected him to be as successful with the Colts as he has been this year.
