After enjoying a four game winning streak and a national holiday, it’s time for the Colts to get back to work. Can they continue that streak against the Dolphins today?
The Colts are one of the hottest teams in the league right now. They have won four straight games and looked down right unstoppable last week. After their demolition of the Titans 38-10, they look to do the same thing against an odd Dolphins team.
Ryan Tannehill will be back for this game, so expect Miami to have a better offense than they have had recently. He is much better than Brock Osweiler, and should be able to move the ball at least a little bit. But they go against a Colts defense that has been playing great.
That Colts defense is slightly healthier as well. They get Malik Hooker back at the starting safety spot, and also get Margus Hunt back. Those two players are key guys who make this team better. But the story of the game will be the Colts offense.
Andrew Luck has been on fire the last few weeks, and don’t expect that to stop today. He should continue to throw the ball extremely well and should put up a lot of points. It’s going to be up to Miami to keep up with him and score enough to win.
Game Prediction: Colts 31 Miami 10
Miami has the same record as the Colts at 5-5, but these are teams in opposite directions right now. The Dolphins just don’t have the talent to slow down the red-hot Colts. They won’t be able to stop Luck or Marlon Mack, and this game will be a rout by the second half.
If Indy does win, that would be five wins in a row, and they would be in the drivers seat for that second wild card spot.
