Reggie Wayne's streak

Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne extended his NFL record to 65 consecutive games with at least three receptions. Wayne finished with eight catches for 96 yards and one touchdown. That's a solid start toward the possibility of another season with 100 catches and 1,000 yards receiving.

Wayne has had 1,000 yards in eight of the last nine seasons, missing by 40 yards in 2011 when the Colts used three different quarterbacks. Wayne's 1,355 yards receiving in Andrew Luck's first season last year was identical to the 1,355 yards Wayne had in Peyton Manning's final healthy season with the Colts in 2010.

Wayne praised Luck after the game.

“He plays better than the average second-year quarterback,” Wayne said. “He inspires everybody in the huddle. Nothing seems to get him down, even when they took the lead. We went out there and he said, 'This is going to be the drive. This is going to be the drive to win the game right here.' He's always confident and knows what he can do with his ability.”

Wayne has caught at least one pass in 113 straight games.
