Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - Ryan Tannehill threw for 319 yards and a
touchdown and Charles Clay had the go-ahead score late in the third quarter as
the Miami Dolphins stayed undefeated with a 24-20 win over the Indianapolis
Tannehill was in complete control of the Miami (2-0) offense, connecting on
23-of-34 passes without an interception. Lamar Miller rushed for 69 yards and
a score while Mike Wallace, who publicly complained about his role with the
team following a one-catch performance in his Dolphins' debut last week,
reeled in nine catches for 115 yards and a touchdown.
Clay caught five passes for 109 yards, including a 70-yard pitch-and-catch
late in the first quarter which set up Miller's touchdown plunge. Trailing
20-17 with a few minutes left in the third period, Clay took it in from a yard
out to put the Dolphins up, and a crucial sack of Andrew Luck by Philip
Wheeler on fourth down in the game's closing moments proved to be the
Luck tossed for 321 yards, a touchdown and an interception on 25-of-43 for the
Colts (1-1), who travel to the west coast for a showdown with the San
Francisco 49ers next week.
Ahmad Bradshaw, starting because of a Vick Ballard ACL tear, carried 15 times
for 65 yards and a score while T.Y. Hilton caught six balls for 124 yards, all
in the first half.
The Dolphins will host Atlanta in week 3.
