Stanford in the NFL - Week 3

Sep 21, 2014

STANFORD, Calif. -- Andrew Luck threw four touchdown passes for the third time in his career as the Indianapolis quarterback highlighted former Cardinal in Week 3 by leading the Colts to a 44-17 win at Jacksonville. Luck, who led Indianapolis to a 30-0 halftime lead, was on target for 31 of 39 passes to set new career-high marks in completion percentage (79.5%) and quarterback rating (140.4). Former Cardinal Coby Fleener caught one of Luck’s touchdown strikes.

Richard Sherman and Doug Baldwin helped Seattle to a victory in one of the marquee meetings of the early NFL slate, a rematch of last year’s Super Bowl with Denver. Sherman made four tackles and Baldwin caught four passes for 56 yards as the Seahawks took the OT thriller, 26-20.
