Luck has only half of a season to break the record. Can he do it?
"The Colts' No. 1 pick and quarterback prodigy has more 300-yard passing games than any rookie in history," is something you could have written about Manning back in 1998. The Colts' 2012 rookie can now say that he's tied Manning in that respect, throwing for a career-high 379 yards against the Dolphins in Week 9 in only three quarters. It is Luck's fourth 300-yard game this season, tying Manning for the rookie record.
Will Luck be able to break the record with a full eight games left this season? You might have been able to say the same thing about Cam Newton last year, who had three 300-yard performances after only four games, but he failed to throw for 300 yards in the final twelve games. However, with the Colts completely inept in the running game, it seems like Luck is going to get his opportunity.
