Colts vs. Dolphins: General preview
The Colts are playing great football right now. They will try to keep that going against the Dolphins on Sunday.
The Colts play their third straight game at home on Sunday. Doing so allows them a chance to take a hold of the second wild card spot in the AFC. They will play another team in the running for that spot, the Miami Dolphins.
Both teams come into the game with a 5-5 record. The Colts have won four straight games coming into the matchup. The Dolphins have had a stranger path to this game, having dealt with injury problems with their starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
With Tannehill missing the last few games, it has been Brock Osweiler who has been moving the team forward. Under Osweiler, the team has gone 2-3. He could start against the Colts Sunday, but there have also been reports that this could be the game Tannehill comes back.
No matter what quarterback the Dolphins trot out, they will be playing against a hot Colts defense. That defense shut down the Titans last week and didn’t let them move the ball at all. That will be one of the keys to the game. If the Colts defense plays like it did last week, good luck.
The Indy offense has also been playing great. They have been killing opponents with their balanced attack. Expect that to continue this week. Miami is 26th in the league in total defense. That unit could be in for a long game on Sunday.
Early on, the signs look good for Indianapolis. But the injury report will always have something to say about the game. But one thing is for certain. If the Colts play the same type of game they did against the Titans, they will not lose to Miami.
