The Miami Dolphins are going to see some of the best passers in the NFL in the next few weeks.They already faced Brandon Weeden and now will face Andrew Luck this week. Just so we are clear, Drew Brees, Tom Brady (twice) Matt Ryan, Andy Dalton and Ben Roethlisberger remain on the schedule.But for now, the Colts a 21-17 winner against Oakland last week, remains the focal point of this team. And that means Luck and his receivers TY Hilton and Reggie Wayne.While Ryan Tannehill told the media how much fun it was to compete against Luck last season on Wednesday, this is not a rodeo or hoedown. This is a football game that will leave one team with their first loss of the season.It was a really competitive game,” Tannehill said on miamidolphins.com. “I think that is what I really remember most about it. It came down to the wire, and I think they did a better job at the end of the half and the end of the game of performing in crunch time there. We didn’t do a great job of finishing when we had the ball.”Strong words from the second year quarterback.So with the game approaching and the game plan formulated, all that is left is to play the game.Here are three bold predictions for Sunday…Andrew Luck meets Dion JordanOn a fast track, Jordan gets sack No. 2 of his career. The rookie first rounder played well in his first game and made only one tackle on the day. But the tackle was a sack of Weeden. I can see Jordan not only getting more playing time, but on a fast track inside Lucas Oil Stadium, there could be many Dolphins in the backfield on Sunday.I say Jordan gets three sacks on the day.Lamar Miller finds his running legsHe was a real mess in the first game of the season when we all thought he would be a terror in  the open field.We were all wrong. Was Miller a tease in preseason, or was he saving his talents to show us how good he is this week?Again, this is a fast track and the Colts defense is getting better (head coach Chuck Pagano is a defensive wiz) but there are still growing pains. The Dolphins must take advantage of it on Sunday. Can Miller top the 100-yard mark on Sunday? Yes. But to really make an impact, he needs a 125-yard day. If not the discussion begins how this running game may be bogus.Andrew Luck throws for 400 yards in a lossWhile I expect the game to be tight and the Fins to win, they will not be able to contain the Colts passing game.Luck picks apart defenses like he is carving meat. The comparisons to John Elway are accurate. And he has speed on the outside to go with good tight ends. Even if Reggie Wayne is at the end of his career, this is a solid unit. Look for Luck to lose, but throw for 400 yards and three touchdowns.
