Don’t tell Andrew Luck that the transition from college football to the NFL is tough. He made it look easy.
One pass. One touchdown.
Luck threw a touchdown pass on his very first NFL throw in the first game of the Indianapolis Colts preseason game. Ok, so after that it wasn’t a touchdown every throw, but Luck certainly looked like a No.1 draft pick in the preseason opener.
Luck and the Colts will take on the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2 of the preseason.
As for the first game though, the rookie quarterback looked good. He completed 10 of 16 passes for 188 yards and two touchdowns. The bulk of that yardage came on the first pass of the game for Luck, which wa a 63-yard touchdown pass to Donald Brown.
All in all, it was about as perfect of a preseason opener as Indianapolis could hope for after the horrible 2011 season. The Colts won 38-3.
For the Steelers, they dropped 24-23 to Philadelphia in their first preseason game. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed 7 of 8 passes on his night, for 49 yards. Roethlisberger is expected to play into the second quarterback in the second game, along with the rest of the starters.
For this match up, oddsmakers have set down a betting line, with the Steelers set as four-point favorites on NFL Preseason Odds available at Bovada Sportsbook. To cover the betting line Pittsburgh will need to win by at least five points. A win by three points or less, and that victory against the spread will go to the Colts.
This should be a compelling preseason match up, with Luck going up against arguably the best defense in the NFL. At the very least, much better than the Rams.
Pittsburgh and Indianapolis kick off at 8pm ET on Sunday night, with coverage picked up nationally on NBC. It’s the first preseason edition of Sunday Night Football. Check out these betting odds and the rest of the Week 2 slate below.
