The Miami Dolphins left Indianapolis with a 24-20 victory over the Colts on Sunday and improved to 2-0 in the process for the first time since 2010.
Ryan Tannehill ultimately outdueld draft-mate Andrew Luck and held off the Colts late attempt for a comeback win. Tannehill completed 23-of-34 passes for 319 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions which was good for a 107.4 passer rating. Luck on the other hand went 25-for-43 with one touchdown, one interception and a 79.7 passer rating.
After a slow start for the Dolphins offense last week, they came out of the gates firing on all cylinders against the Colts. Tannehill got Mike Wallace the ball early and often as the team's biggest free agent signing set a career high for receptions in a regular season game with 9 for 115 yards and a touchdown. Tight end Charles Clay also proved to be a valuable weapon for Tannehill in the passing game as the pair connected for 109 yards on five catches, including a 67 yard reception. Clay's versatility made him difficult to cover for the Colts as he also lined up in the backfield where he rushed for his first touchdown of the season.no comments
