The Miami Dolphins will meet the Indianapolis Colts in a very intriguing matchup of rookie QBs this Sunday. Miami will come into the game behind rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill while the Colts will have 1st overall selection Andrew Luck under center. Both teams are all knotted up with 4-3 records and need a win to stay in the hunt in their division. The game will be played at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indiana. To this point in the season, both signal callers have led their team well and have pretty solid numbers.
Ryan Tannehill has completed 120 of his 203 passes for nearly 1500 yards. He has just 4 TD passes on the year, but has thrown 6 interceptions. He has also ran one TD in this season. The Dolphins last game last week was a very convincing one in New York against the Jets. There, they were able to dominate the Jets to pick up a 30-9 victory. Miami and Tannehill, however, have relied heavily on their run game while the Colts have had more luck in the passing game.
Indianapolis has gotten nearly 2000 yards from Andrew Luck who has completed 160 of his 288 passes. He has 8 passing TDs and has added 3 on the ground. Luck has thrown 8 interceptions to this point of the season. In the Colts last game week 8, they defeated the Tennessee Titans 19-13 in Tennessee. Miami does present a big challenge as they play solid team defense, but the story of the day will be the rookie QBs.
