Andrew Luck will try to set the NFL's rookie record for passing yards in a single season and clinch Indianapolis a postseason berth when the Chiefs and Colts meet up Sunday.
With just 74 yards, Andrew Luck will become part of NFL history.
That's all that the rookie quarterback out of Stanford needs to be the league's record-holder in passing yards in a single season for a first-year player. The mark of 4,051 was set just last year by Cam Newton, who broke Peyton Manning's 1998 mark of 3,739. With 3,978 yards, Luck has the franchise record for rookie passing yards.
That's not all Luck can do Sunday. With a win or a tie, the Colts will clinch a playoff spot as one of the AFC's two wild-card teams. Though Indianapolis missed out on the AFC South title by losing to Houston in Week 15, the postseason berth would be a huge jump from the 2-14 team that was never in contention last season. Even without a win, though, the Colts could still get a playoff spot Sunday, if Pittsburgh loses to or ties Cincinnati.
The Chiefs, meanwhile, have no postseason hopes and no records for which to play. At 2-12, Kansas City is firmly mired at the bottom of the league thanks to the worst offense in the NFL. The Chiefs also haven't had any success against the Colts lately, having dropped 10 of their last 12 matchups with Indianapolis.
