The Indianapolis Colts got their franchise QB Andrew Luck back last week after a shoulder injury kept him out last season. The Washington Redskins started a new era with their new QB, Alex Smith. The Colts rely heavily on Luck with their lack of a running game. The Redskins have a future Hall of Famer in the backfield. The Colts had a big turnover last week that sealed their loss, while the Redskins make it look easy against the Cardinals.

Luck had to throw the ball 53 times in his return on Sunday. He completed 39 of those passes to go with two touchdowns and a pick. The Colts can’t have him throw 50 times every week if they want to win football games. They need to establish some kind of rushing attack, and maybe Marlon Mack possibly returning will allow them to do that. With 50-plus passes a week and a weak offensive line, Luck won’t end up lasting the whole season if it keeps up at that pace.
The Redskins breezed past the Cardinals in Week 1, 24-6. With Peterson added in the mix and him showing that his 33-year-old legs still have some juice, it makes the Redskins offense so much more dynamic. With Peterson as a true back and Chris Thompson as a back and guy who could catch balls, the Redskins have a nice little one-two punch. Smith doesn’t have a ton of talent on the outside, but he’s got enough in Paul Richardson, Jamison Crowder, and Jordan Reed to put up points. They should have FedEx Field rocking in their home opener.
