A STATEMENT WIN

Indianapolis heads into postseason on strong note

(Continued)

Jacksonville was limited to a 37-yard field goal by Josh Scobee with 11:55 remaining in the second quarter.

Luck completed 26-of-37 passes for 282 yards and a touchdown before giving way to backup Matt Hasselbeck early in the fourth quarter. Hasselbeck performed mop up duty the rest of the way.

Hilton had a monster day as he caught 11 passes for 155 yards, both single-game career bests. The second-year wide receiver ends the regular-season with a team-high 82 catches for 1,083 yards and five TDs. He is the first Colts receiver to go over 1,000 yards receiving in season -- other than Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne -- since Brandon Stokley in 2004.

Vinatieri’s three field goals and three extra-points gave him a team-leading 139 points this season and pushed his career total to 2,006. He is the seventh player in National Football League history to score more than 2,000 points.

Luck set a league-mark for the most passing yards (8,196) by a quarterback in the first two years of his career during the Super Bowl era. He also registered his 22nd career victory, moving past former Miami quarterback Dan Marino for the most wins over the first two years of a NFL career.

As for Mathis, the Colts outside linebacker was credited with two sacks against Jacksonville. He finished the regular season with a career-best and franchise-record 19.5 sacks overall. Indianapolis’ lone Pro Bowl selection now has 110 career sacks.

Inside linebacker Jerrell Freeman also had a sack along with eight total tackles, a tackle for loss, two quarterback hurries, two passes broken up and a forced fumble. Freeman was the AFC Defensive Player of the Week last week for his performance against Kansas City (seven tackles, a sack, an interception, a forced fumble, a recovered fumble and two passes broken up).

Safety Antoine Bethea also registered his second interception of the season.

    Two decades after NASCAR started running at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the crowds have thinned considerably. It's probably no reflection on the sport's massive following, which stretches from coast to coast, but it surely doesn't NASCAR's image help when the cameras pan across all of those empty seats.
