It was just an exhibition, but Indianapolis Colts rookie quarterback Andrew Luck exhibited why he deserved to be playing with the rest of the NFL's greats in the Pro Bowl and why he'll most likely make several return appearances to the annual all-star game. Luck led all AFC quarterbacks with 205 yards on 12 of 19 passing, throwing two touchdowns and one interception.

Luck entered the game late in the third quarter with his AFC squad trailing 45-21. He hooked up with Cincinnati's AJ Green twice for touchdowns before being intercepted in the end zone on his final series.

Robert Mathis also had a good game representing the Colts. Mathis picked up five tackles and sacked Seattle's Russell Wilson in the third quarter for a nine yard loss.

Reggie Wayne represented the Colts at wide receiver and caught two of the three balls thrown his way. Both were passes from his old teammate, Peyton Manning.

One other Colts-related item saw retiring Green Bay center and former Colts Jeff Saturday snap one more time to his former Indianapolis teammate, Peyton Manning. Manning orchestrated the tribute to Saturday, who as far as we can tell, became the only player ever to play for both the NFC and the AFC in the same game.
