INDIANAPOLIS - Chuck Pagano was so eager to get back to work Monday, he was the first one to show up at team headquarters. Long before meeting with his players, the Colts' first-year coach drove quietly into the complex, walked into the office where the lights have remained on for nearly three months, and began preparing for Sunday's game against AFC South champion Houston as if it were another day at the office. Hardly. It was the biggest milestone yet in an incredibly emotional season in which Pagano has beaten leukemia and the Colts have been a most pleasant surprise in reaching the playoffs under interim coach Bruce Arians.

THE MISTAKE is traced to Brian Dawkins' escape; surely, Dawkins' play at safety was sorely missed after the Eagles failed to re-sign him after the 2008 season. What often is forgotten is that the mistake was compounded after the 2010 season, when the Eagles let Quintin Mikell leave, too. They were confident that they had at least two options from the 2010 draft: second-rounder Nate Allen, whom they expected to recover from a late-season knee injury; and seventh-round revelation Kurt Coleman, who, as a backup, appeared to be a sterling find.

The list of Eagles for whom the 2012 season will be remembered as a positive is not a long one. There are rookies who have established themselves and a very few veterans who improved their standing as NFL players, but you could hold a meeting of the This Wasn't All Bad Club in a pretty small room. And then there is Colt Anderson, the smallish safety who has been doubted at every level and who began the season still recovering from surgery to repair a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

SOMEWHERE FAIRLY high among the reasons why Andy Reid almost certainly will coach his final home game for the Eagles Sunday is this: Reid's team drafted safety Nate Allen in the second round in 2010, 37th overall, and safety Jaiquawn Jarrett in the second round in 2011, 54th overall. Neither Allen nor Jarrett will start for the Eagles against the visiting Washington Redskins. Jarrett was cut Sept. 11, and on Wednesday, Reid announced that Colt Anderson will take Allen's starting role.

Michael Vick, Sam Bradford and Blaine Gabbert have two things in common. One, they quarterback losing teams that rank in the bottom six in the NFL in scoring. Two, they all have a better quarterback rating than Andrew Luck, who has helped lead the Colts to a 9-4 record and a 22.5 points-per-game average that ranks 17th in the league. The deficiencies of the quarterback rating metric are well-documented, but it is particularly ineffective when it comes to evaluating the performance of young signalcallers.

DETROIT - Andrew Luck took full advantage of his last shot to lead the Indianapolis Colts to a stunning victory Sunday. Luck threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to Donnie Avery with no time left to lift the Colts to a 35-33 comeback win over the Detroit Lions. With the final seconds ticking away, the rookie moved up in the pocket and flipped a short pass to Avery, who ran untouched into the end zone to complete a rally that started midway through the fourth quarter with the Lions up 12 points.

Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, who hasn't been getting as much press as Redskins sensational rookie Robert Griffin III, quietly broke one of those arcane records Sunday that give fans something to argue about. With no time left against the Lions, Luck threw a 14-yard TD pass to Donnie Avery that lifted 8-4 Indianapolis to a 35-33 comeback, and marked the Colts' eighth win this season - a record, of sorts: Luck has won more games than any rookie quarterback drafted No. 1 overall in the Super Bowl era. Luck broke the mark held by Sam Bradford, who helped the St. Louis Rams win seven games two years ago, and also surpassed Jim Plunkett in New England during the 1971 season.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 13.   Watch 'em roll Matt Stafford, QB, Lions vs. Colts. Coming off his huge Thanksgiving outing against the Texans, Stafford should be in your starting lineup as the Colts' mediocre secondary comes to town. Stafford is finally starting to resemble the deadly gunslinger we remember from last season. Bryce Brown, RB, Eagles at Cowboys. Dallas' defense is in free fall, thanks to injuries. Meanwhile, LeSean McCoy is still in the early stages of recovery from his concussion, leaving the Birds backfield in Brown's capable hands again.

THE COLTS defeated the visiting Bills, 20-13, Sunday. But the biggest winners in Lucas Oil Stadium were two Indianapolis cheerleaders who shaved their heads in support of Colts head coach Chuck Pagano, who was diagnosed with leukemia earlier this season. Two weeks ago, cheerleader Megan M. said she would shave her head if she and Blue, the team mascot, could raise $10,000 for the Colts' "ChuckStrong" campaign. They more than doubled that amount, raising $22,670, and Megan agreed to live up to her end of the deal.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The New England Patriots' superb offense finally got some help from the rest of the team. The Patriots used three scoring passes from Tom Brady, two touchdowns on interception returns, and another on a punt return to match a team single-game scoring record in a 59-24 rout of the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. The first matchup between three-time Super Bowl winner Brady and star rookie Andrew Luck was no match. The Patriots (7-3) won their fourth straight game and extended their lead in the AFC East to three games.
