Miami @ IndianapolisWhy Should I Care? The 4-3 Dolphins currently hold the fifth seed in the AFC. The 4-3 Colts, by way of what I bet is a very complex tie breaker, hold the sixth seed in the conference. These two teams have suddenly emerged as dark-horse playoff contenders. This matchup will decide who is able to hold on to that coveted playoff spot for at least one more week.By The Numbers!The Dolphins defense has emerged, yet again, as one of the leagues’ best. They are allowing a stingy 3.5 yards per rushing attempt to opposing offenses. The Miami defense is top-ten material in virtually every defensive rushing category. They rank third in rushing yards allowed with 574. That’s pretty impressive after 7 games. The Dolphins have not been quite as successful against the pass. They’ve allowed nearly 2000 yards through the air. Nonetheless, they are keeping opponents out of the end zone. They’ve allowed only 126 points - fifth in the league.Andrew Luck and the Colts’ offense may not...

Dolphins like Tannehill more than Colts' Luck

DAVIE, Fla. -- The "Suck for Luck" campaign was in full force a year ago. The Miami Dolphins were 0-7 and in position to land Andrew Luck with the top pick in the NFL draft. It didn't happen. The Dolphins suddenly turned matters around and finished 6-10. Indianapolis ended up with the highly touted quarterback. But the Dolphins have come out OK. They managed to get...

Colts playoff hopes dependent on more than just Luck?

  In one of the biggest surprises of the NFL season, rookie quarterback Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts are 4-3 and in second place in the AFC South standings.  With Luck under center, the upstart Colts have already won twice as many games as they did in 2011 and if the NFL postseason started today, the Colts would be in.

Key Matchups WK 8 - Dolphins.

After yet another close victory last weekend against the Titans, the Colts return home to welcome an equally surprising Dolphins team to Lucas Oil Stadium.

7 Questions for the Dolphins Game

Before the season began Greg Cowan and I had a long, lopsided debate about the potential this new era Colts team had for 2012. Statistics and prior history suggested somewhere between 3 and 6 wins. Anything more would be considered an abberation but my voice was somewhat quiet in comparison to Greg's booming insistance that the Colts could be a playoff team. While partly tongue...
