INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - After an exciting finish and win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday, the 8-4 Indianapolis Colts have received a lot of attention.
As the team is in the driver’s seat to making the playoffs, some are talking about potential accolades for quarterback Andrew Luck and interim head coach Bruce Arians.
Luck led the Colts 76 yards in just over a minute at the end of the game. Then, after three failed attempts at the 14 yard line, Luck finally connected with Donnie Avery for the game winning touchdown. The way the Colts are playing, it’s possible Arians could be named Coach of the Year and Luck Rookie of the Year. But Arians isn’t ready for that sort of talk.
“I don't think it's the time of year to talk about accolades yet,” Arians said. “I think you add those up at the end. There's enough credit, if you keep winning, there's enough credit to go around for everybody — Pro Bowls, MVPs, Rookie of the Year — all of that stuff. There's a time and place for that. Right now, we just got to beat Tennessee."
The Colts face off against division rival Tennessee this Sunday at 1 p.m. at Lucas Oil Stadium. The game will air on WISH-TV.
