NEW YORK -- Comments on the Indianapolis Colts by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):

---

INDIANAPOLIS COLTS (10)

Chris Berman (ESPN, 12) -- Now that they can win in clutch on the road, watch out.

Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 15) -- All things considered, Reggie Wayne may be having best year.

Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 10)

Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 11) -- They have won seven of their last nine games since head coach Chuck Pagano was diagnosed with leukemia.

Bob Glauber (Newsday, 6) -- So much for a rebuilding season with a first-year quarterback. Looks like Andrew Luck will be going to the playoffs, thanks to his unprecedented and exhilarating rookie excellence.

Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 9) -- The Colts finished fourth in the NFL in offense in Peyton Manning's last season in 2010. Indy ranks a surprising third this season with rookie Andrew Luck taking the snaps.

Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 8) -- Did someone say Andrew Luck for MVP? There isn't a better feel-good story out there than this team.

Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 11) -- Why stop at Rookie of the Year? Andrew Luck is a viable MVP candidate.

Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 12) -- A playoff team with a rookie QB and a coach battling for his life. This is America's team 2012.

John Lynch (Fox Sports, 11) -- The Colts continue their special season and are now 8-4. Andrew Luck is a special player and will be for a long, long time in this league.

Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 10) -- The Colts continue to squeak past the opposition, winning for the seventh time by seven points or less in last Sunday's 35-33 comeback over Detroit.

Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 8) -- Andrew Luck is so good he can win even when he throws three interceptions.
