Don't let the title fool you.  Andrew Luck is no baby but by NFL standards he is.  Luck, who right now is the front runner for rookie of the year, is playing like a seasoned veteran.  He has full command of the offense and his teammates rally around him.  He's shown incredible poise and confidence for a first year, first overall pick quarterback who was thrown onto the worst team from a year ago.  But yet and still, he's a kid and compared to Tom Brady, Andrew Luck is the youngest one in curls.

Brady is the model of consistency and a multiple NFL record holder in numerous offensive categories including touchdown passes in a single season (50), quickest QB to 100 wins, most pass attempts without throwing an interception in a Super Bowl (48), highest completion percentage in a playoff game (92%) and many more.  Andrew Luck already grabbed his own QB record with most passing yards thrown in a game by a rookie (433).

When the Colts and Patriots have gone head to head it was always billed as Brady vs Manning.  This has been a great rivalry since the 2002 season and got really heated in the snowy frigid temperatures in New England during the 2004 playoffs when the Pats defense gave Peyton all he could handle and more.  It may be tough to keep this rivalry going for another 10 years with Brady being on the back end of his career.  But the Colts are sure to hold up their end of the bargain by securing Andrew Luck as their next Peyton Manning.

Surprisingly the rookie has his Colts right in the heart of a playoff birth at (6-3) much like their opponents this weekend who hold the same record.  However, the Patriots are in a much better position having a commanding lead in their division and not much competition within the AFC East to give New England a problem.  Indy  has an outside shot going to Foxboro and pulling out a victory.  The Patriots have not played well at all lately and the Colts have been, albeit against some pretty weak opponents.  But believe it or not, Luck has been much better than Brady in 4th quarter this season so if it's close with 5 minutes left don't be surprised to see the rookie show up the veteran.  Let the new era begin.
