INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Reggie Wayne no longer lives in the shadow of some other Indianapolis Colts player.
After a dozen NFL seasons, he has become the leader of the offense now.
Yes, this may be Andrew Luck's team, but Wayne is the guy everyone seems to follow. Wayne passed up taking more money during the offseason so he could come back to his adopted hometown to teach a group of young, unproven receivers what it takes to excel in the NFL.
On Sunday, Wayne gave them a firsthand demonstration.
He had 13 receptions for a career-high 212 yards, including five for 64 yards on Indy's decisive final drive - the last catch being a 4-yard touchdown reception that gave the Colts a stunning 30-27 victory over Green Bay.
