From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 24): Jacksonville's defensive line deserves some credit, but Luck was choppy and without a long bomb to TY Hilton on the day of the wide receiver's child's birth, Luck would have been a fantasy dud. He is not looking like a member of the elite QB1 tier right now.

Week 13: vs Washington Redskins

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Andrew Luck went down swinging against the Patriots two weeks ago (23/39 for 303 yards passing, two TDs and one interception thrown during the 20-42 loss), and rebounded to pound the hapless Jaguars 23-3 last week (21/32 for 253 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions while taking five sacks for -39 yards). New dad T.Y. Hilton snagged a TD in honor of his newborn child (five targets for 4/122/1 receiving), while Donte Moncrief (four for 4/38/0), Dan Herron (five for 5/31/0) and Coby Fleener (four for 2/28/0) helped move the chains. In the local media there have been reports that Reggie Wayne has lost a step after nine targets for 3/10/0 receiving last week, but remember he handled nine for 5/91/0 just two weeks ago against the Patriots - it may be premature to write off the savvy veteran after one disappointing outing. The Colts' passing attack is ranked first in the NFL after 11 games, averaging 323.1 passing yards per game, with 29 TDs thrown vs. 10 interceptions handed over. Also, Dwayne Allen may return from his ankle injury this week, but coach Chuck Pagano wasn't overly optimistic about Allen on Monday 'He's trending in the right direction but he's going to be day-to-day' was the statement. Stay tuned to Footballguys.com's Players in the News for the latest on Allen going into the Week 13 games. The Washington pass D is ranked eighth in the NFL in terms of net yards allowed per game (230.3), but they have given away a hefty 21 passing scores over 11 games, with a mere four interceptions (tied for next-to-last in the NFL) generated this year. Their 27 sacks ties Washington for 12th in the NFL in that category, but overall this is a mediocre pass D that gives up a lot of points. Colin Kaepernick threw 20/29 for 246 net yards, one TD and one interception vs. Washington last week; Josh McCown tossed 15/23 for 281 net yards, two TDs and zero interceptions at Washington two games ago. This looks like a good matchup for the league-leading Indianapolis offense.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 11 vs NE (23 / 39 / 303 / 2 / 1 pass, 3 / 15 / 0 rush)

While the offense only put up 20 points against Bill Belichick's defense, Luck had one of his cleanest games of the season. Luck is good for a few questionable decisions per game, but had just one or two on Sunday, when his defense, a few dropped passes and a complete lack of running game let him down. He did attempt to force one throw to Reggie Wayne while under pressure that Darrelle Revis tipped, leading to an interception. Luck also missed a wide-open Donte Moncrief on what could have been a long touchdown in the first half, but was pretty consistent otherwise, finishing with his eighth 300-yard, two-touchdown performance of the year.

2014 Week 12 vs JAX (21 / 32 / 253 / 1 / 0 pass, 8 / 49 / 0 rush)

Sunday was the first time since Week 2 that Luck didn't finish with at least 300 yards passing, and his two fumbles in the first quarter put a damper on his success later in the game. With starting right tackle Gosder Cherilus out with an injury, the Colts were forced to start utility guard Joe Reitz at tackle. Combine that with horrific first half performances from Hugh Thornton and Jonotthan Harrison and you get Luck's ugly start: five sacks, two fumbles and just two field goal drives. Dwayne Allen's absence from the game likely hurt Luck as well, as the Colts only scored touchdowns on two of their five red zone attempts. But there were also just missed opportunities for the third-year quarterback. He overthrew Reggie Wayne twice on plays that could have been touchdowns, and he was clearly uncomfortable in the pocket throughout the day. Luck should fare better next week if Cherilus and Allen can come back healthy.

Colts | Andrew Luck comes up short of 300 (Sun Nov 23, 07:57 PM) - Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck completed 21 of his 32 passes for 253 yards and a touchdown in Week 12 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He also ran eight times for 49 yards. However, he came up 47 yards short of tying the NFL record by New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees for consecutive 300-yard games. Luck's streak ended at eight.

Our View: The Colts offense was surprisingly thwarted by a Jaguars pass rush that makes you wonder about how the Colts will perform against tougher defenses. Next week brings Washington, so don't get worried about Luck yet.
