Colts 27, Titans 23

Colts rookie, vet combining well

INDIANAPOLIS — Adam Vinatieri is still winning games with his foot. Andrew Luck is still winning games he's not supposed to.

The clutch kicker and hotshot rookie teamed up again, leading the Colts back from a 13-point halftime deficit for another comeback victory, this time over Tennessee.

"Everybody on the team — offensively, defensively, special teams — just plays football. They're not worried about the scoreboard too much, not worried about what's going on," Luck said.

The No. 1 overall draft pick has six fourth-quarter comebacks, one more than Ben Roethlisberger (2004) and Vince Young (2006), which had been the most for a rookie since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. Luck also passed Peyton Manning for the most yards passing by a rookie in Colts history with 3,792.

Vinatieri's two field goals in the fourth quarter provided the winning margin.
