As Andrew Luck ’12 stood on the wrong side of Ertz’s most recent late-game heroism, his Indianapolis Colts fell to the Eagles 30-27 after squandering a 14-point lead. Luck finished the game 20-for-34 for 172 yards with three touchdowns and an interception, which came on a controversial no-holding call late in the quarter. Ertz picked up 86 yards on four receptions while his fellow “Tree Amigo” Coby Fleener notched one reception for 13 yards for the Colts.
