As we continue to award our 2018 NFL awards, this award is the Associated Press Comeback Player of the Year. This was an easy decision.

After missing a season due to injury, Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck had one of the best seasons of his career in 2018. He even guided the Colts to the playoffs, as they will face the Houston Texans this weekend in the AFC Wild Card Round.

The 29-year-old Washington, D.C. native guided the Colts to a 10-6 record tthis season. This was his best season since an 11-5 record in 2014.

Luck went 430 of 639 for 4,593 yards with 39 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. He was just 168 yards off of his career season that he had in 2014 as he had 4,761 yards.

In 2014, he had a career-high 40 touchdowns. This season, he was one touchdown shy of that mark.

He had one game in which he threw for more than 400 yards. He went 40 of 62 for 464 yards in a 37-34 loss to the Texans. He also had four touchdowns in the game.

His worst game of the season in terms of passing yardage came in Week 7 in a 37-5 win over the Buffalo Bills. He went 17 of 23 for 156 yards with four touchdowns.

He also had a four touchdown game in Week 6 in a 42-34 loss to the New York Jets.
