NEW YORK -- Comments on the Indianapolis Colts by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
INDIANAPOLIS COLTS (12)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 14) -- Colts being 6-3 could be story of the year in NFL.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 14) -- A feel-good story that seems to be getting better every week.
Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 11)
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 12) -- Have won four straight, but a step up in weight class this week in New England.
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 11) -- In the six games since Indy's bye, rookie quarterback Andrew Luck has rushed for as many touchdowns (five) as he has thrown.

Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 12) -- The growing bond between Luck and Wayne is leaving opponents shaken and stirred.
Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 13) -- The best story of 2012 in sports. A 2011 2-14 team that plugged a rookie QB in the lineup, lost their coach for a few months but still manage a 6-3 and are on a four-game winning streak.
