        Week one of the regular season showed the Colts writing a familiar script.  Sunday's matchup with the Oakland Raiders went down to the wire.  Come to think of it, it looked a lot like some of the big moments in 2012. Another game, another comeback win. It's something to which Colts' fans have grown accustomed.

        Sunday's 21-17 win over the Oakland Raiders was the eighth comeback victory in the past two seasons.

        "A win is a win is a win is a win," says QB Andrew Luck.  "Obviously we don't want to have to take it down to the wire like that every week."

        Most would agree the glue that holds this team together is Luck.

        "He's awesome, man," applauds Greg Toler, a cornerback acquired during the offseason.  "I watched what he did last year. He's just amazing."

        "He inspires everybody in the huddle," says veteran Reggie Wayne. "He came out today and said 'This is the drive. This is the drive that's going to win the game."

        And as the young signal caller continues to mature, the "Cardiac Colts" will go as he goes.
