Under first-year offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton, the Indianapolis Colts have preached balance in their overall offensive approach. But that certainly wasn't the case on their opening drive in the Saturday afternoon wild-card game between the Colts and the Kansas City Chiefs.

After Kansas City quarterback Alex Smith led his team to a touchdown on their opening drive, Indy responded with a drive that was all Andrew Luck -- seven passes, all completions, all out of the shotgun, and five out of no-huddle.

The drive ended with a perfect 10-yard throw throw from Luck to receiver T.Y. Hilton, Luck's primary target since the Colts lost Reggie Wayne to a torn ACL on Oct. 20.
