Looks like Andrew Luck is making the transition from college to the NFL all right. The Indianapolis Colts quarterback threw for 433 yards in Sunday's 23-20 win over the Miami Dolphins, breaking Cam Newton's year-old record for yards passing in a game by a rookie (422). Oh yeah, he also became the second rookie signal-caller in the history of the NFL to produce four 300-yard games in a season. The other guy? Somebody named Peyton Manning, who now plies his trade in Denver. Probably no coincidence that the rebuilding Colts are essentially reconstructed and a suitable topic for playoff conversation at 5-3. An added highlight: Colts coach Chuck Pagano, 52, who is battling leukemia and is scheduled to begin a second round of chemotherapy this week, was in the stadium to see Luck's feat.

Falcons (+2) over EAGLES: The important key numbers in the NFL, for betting purposes, are three, seven and 10 . . . but 13 is the key number in this game, and the one that has everybody all jacked up. That would be Andy Reid's ridonkulous 13-0 record the week after a bye. However, there are some other numbers that Double V has to put on the table: Eight, eight and five. In order, those are Michael Vick's touchdowns, interceptions and fumbles lost. How about one, one and two? Those are the winning margins in the Birds' three victories this season (17-16 against the Browns, 24-23 over the Ravens and 19-17 against the Giants)

COLTS (-2 1/2) over Browns: When we took a look at the Colts-Jets game last week, it was pretty obvious that Indy would not be able to bring the emotion - playing for coach Chuck Pagano who is fighting cancer - of the prior week against the Packers. Obvious turned into reality as the Jets smoked the Horseshoes, 35-9. Now, Indianapolis looks to get back on track against a Cleveland team that is working on an 0-10 run on the road. And if you wanna extend back a while, the Brownies have only five wins away from home in the last 27 attempts.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Since leaving the Temple sideline after the 1988 season, interim Colts head coach Bruce Arians has spent more than 20 years in the NFL. His career has spanned five franchises, included two Super Bowl rings, and has encompassed every offensive job from coordinator to tight-ends coach. But never once has he been invited to interview for an NFL head-coaching position. Last week, he suggested that maybe it is because of his brutal honesty. On Sunday, minutes after his young team was walloped by the Jets, it wasn't hard to see what he meant.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Trailing by three scores at the half, Andrew Luck walked out of the visitors' locker room at MetLife Stadium on Sunday as one confident rookie. He had been there before. In fact, it had only been a week earlier that Luck, the No. 1 overall pick in April's draft, had heroically carried his Colts back from an 18-point halftime deficit to beat the Packers, 30-27. In his fourth game as a pro, Luck had spotted Aaron Rodgers 18 points, and won. Accordingly, when asked on Sunday if he thought that he could replicate the previous week's comeback, Luck was emphatic.

INDIANAPOLIS - All Andrew Luck and Reggie Wayne wanted to do was honor coach Chuck Pagano the best way they knew how - by winning. The two biggest playmakers on Indy's offense teamed up in the second half, wiping out an 18-point halftime deficit and hooking up on a 4-yard TD pass with 35 seconds left to give the Colts a stunning, 30-27 victory over Green Bay. It was a wild finish to a challenging week, and a win interim coach Bruce Arians called...

INDIANAPOLIS - All Chuck Pagano asked the Indianapolis Colts to do was focus on football. Andrew Luck and Reggie Wayne did that - and a little more to honor their ailing coach. The rookie quarterback and veteran receiver connected at the most critical moments Sunday, including a 4-yard touchdown pass with 35 seconds left to complete the Colts' second-half rally and stun Green Bay, 30-27, on perhaps the most emotional day in Lucas Oil Stadium history. "I'm sure we were all lying to everybody the whole week, trying to downplay it," Luck said after throwing for a career-high 362 yards.

For the second straight Tuesday, the Eagles addressed their subpar special teams by releasing a player whose roster spot appeared safe not all that long ago. Last week, it was punter Chas Henry. This week, the Eagles waived linebacker Brian Rolle, who was the starting weakside linebacker just a little more than a month ago. Rolle's role had shifted to special teams after he was demoted. After the Eagles kick-return cover team was gashed by the New York Giants on Sunday, somebody presumably had to pay. "It is what it is," Rolle said during a phone interview.

INDIANAPOLIS - In a somber news conference Monday, the Indianapolis Colts announced that head coach Chuck Pagano had been hospitalized for leukemia treatment and probably would not return to full coaching duties this season. He will be replaced on an interim basis by former Temple coach Bruce Arians, the offensive coordinator. "He will do fine," Arians said of Pagano, his voice cracking as he recalled his own fight with prostate cancer in 2007. "I know him. He's a fighter. He's survived tough times already in his life.
