Andrew Luck had a chance for another fourth quarter comeback, but today was not his day. The Indianapolis Colts fell short of the rally losing to the Dolphins 24-20.
Luck threw for 321 yards and a touchdown. He also had one interception late in the game.
Running back Ahmad Bradshaw got the start and rushed for 65 yards. He also found the end zone once.
TY Hilton was the high receiver for the day, hauling in six passes for 124 yards. Coby Fleener started in place of the injured Dwayne Allen. Fleener caught four passes for 69 yards and a touchdown. He had another touchdown reception called back on a dubious penalty.
The Colts defense played well enough to win this game. The D sacked Ryan Tannehill five times and recovered two fumbles. Jerrell Freeman and Robert Mathis both had two sacks.
While the Colts struggled with play calling, it was the officiating that really killed any chance of a win. Only three penalties were called during the entire game, all against the Colts. Last week the Dolphins had 10 penalties called against them.
The Colts fall to 1-1 and will head to San Francisco next week to face the 49ers.
