Apparently lighting does strike twice, like former Colts quarterback Peyton Manning, Andrew Luck threw a touchdown pass on his first play as an NFL quarterback. Luck tossed a short screen pass to Donald Brown who took care of the rest. The fourth year back ran in a 63 yard touchdown to give the Colts their first score of the day in the Colts preseason opener against St. Louis.

Luck didn't stop there after a three and out in his second series the new face of the franchise rebounded with a seven play touchdown drive. He spread the field, hitting Austin Collie, TY Hilton and Coby Fleener. Then with time in the pocket Luck showed off his arm strength connecting with Collie for a 23 yard touchdown to give the Colts a 14-0 lead over St. Louis.

Luck's debut lasted late into the second quareter. In his fourth and final series the Colts completed three third-down conversions. A deep ball from Luck to receiver Quan Cosby got the Colts in the red zone and it was Delone Carter who punched in the one yard touchdown. The 13 play 80 yard drive lasted a little over four minutes and put the Colts up 21 to 3. In all, Luck completed 10-of-16 passes for 188 yards and two touchdowns, he also was 5-of-6 on third down conversions.
