It was the first pass of Luck’s NFL career, though the quarterback takes no credit for the play.
“I don’t know if you can categorize it as a pass,” he said. “I literally did nothing. Donald Brown and the lineman and the wide receivers did the rest. It was fun. It was exciting, it really was. I will remember that for a long time.”
