STANFORD, Calif. – Andrew Luck delivered four second-half touchdown passes and scored on a fumble recovery to lead the Indianapolis Colts to the second-biggest comeback win in NFL playoff history Saturday.

Luck completed seven passes to former Stanford teammates Coby Fleener and Griff Whalen. Fleener was also on the receiving end of a 12-yard touchdown connection as part of the thrilling 45-44 win against Kansas City.

Zach Ertz, one of six ex-Cardinal tight ends in the NFL along with Fleener, also caught a touchdown pass on Saturday. The catch gave Philadelphia a one-point lead with 4:54 left in the fourth quarter, but New Orleans drove down the field for a field goal as time expired to end the season for Ertz and the Eagles.

Active Stanford players went 4-1 in the wild-card round and seven will appear in next weekend's divisional round. Doug Baldwin (Seattle), Richard Sherman (Seattle) and Sione Fua (Denver) had byes this weekend as their respective teams owned No. 1 seeds.
