The Indianapolis Colts [1] stunned the Detroit Lions Sunday as rookie quarterback Andrew Luck threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to receiver Donnie Avery to down the Lions 35-33. 

Luck ended the game with the poise of a veteran quarterback and willed the Colts to an eighth win and a firm grip on the first Wild Card seed in the AFC en route to the playoffs. 

With Luck recording his fifth fourth-quarter comeback this season in shocking fashion, Twitter exploded with a variety of reactions as the events unfolded. 

Of course, NFL [2].com started the action by providing an instant video of Luck’s last-second magic:



As expected, Colts fans were thrilled with the result. The prospects of heading to the postseason with a quarterback not named Peyton Manning [6] so soon has to have the fanbase excited. These tweets showed just that following the victory:
