Associated Press

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.

Bob Glauber (Newsday, 12) -- Andrew Luck takes the baton from Peyton Manning in the Colts-Patriots rivalry, which resumes on Sunday at Gillette. Win or lose, Colts very much in the playoff hunt.

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.

Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 12) -- Question: Why isn't Ryan Grigson on anyone's short list for Executive of the Year?

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.

John Lynch (Fox Sports, 11) -- The Colts are having a magical season, inspired by the fight of their coach Chuck Pagano and a rookie QB who looks nothing like a rookie.

Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 10) -- A true measuring stick of just how good the surprising Colts are will come Sunday in New England.

Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 10) -- They may have less hair on their heads, but they've been playing like they have more hair on their chests.
