What to Know
The Indianapolis Colts are staying on the road Sunday to face off against the Miami Dolphins at 1 p.m. ET Oct. 3 at Hard Rock Stadium. The point spread is more or less neutral, so fans should expect a close contest.
Indianapolis came up short against the Tennessee Titans last week, falling 25-16. QB Carson Wentz had a pretty forgettable game, passing for only 194 yards on 37 attempts.
Most of the squad’s points came courtesy of special teams, which contributed ten. K Rodrigo Blankenship delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game.
Meanwhile, Miami fought the good fight in their overtime matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders last week but wound up with a less-than-desirable result, falling 31-28. No one had a standout game offensively for the Dolphins, but they got scores from OLB Elandon Roberts and RB Malcolm Brown.
The losses put Indianapolis at 0-3 and Miami at 1-2. A couple stats to keep an eye on: Indianapolis is third worst in the league in passing touchdowns allowed, with nine on the season. Miami has experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the game with the second fewest passing touchdowns in the NFL, having accrued only one on the season. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
