Week 16

Indianapolis Colts

Andrew Luck versus Ryan Tannehill could be the quarterback match-up of the future for years to come. Luck will have his arsenal and Miami will have theirs. The key here is the defenses where the Dolphins have a very good one and the Colts are a bit unknown. The Colts play in a very weak division and the Dolphins play in a very tough one and that could be the difference when it comes to punching through the wall, so to speak.

Why Miami could win this game

Miami’s offense is much stronger than the Colts defense and they should be able to control the ball and score points while their defense can pressure Luck. The Colts offensive line entering the season has it’s share of problems and like the Dolphins they are hoping that time will help the unit materialize. The question is can Miami put up enough points while keeping the Colts from scoring?

Why Miami could lose

The Colts have a highly effective accurate quarterback who is quick with his release and receivers who can exploit defensive weaknesses. The Dolphins secondary is going to need play tight in order to take away the Colts passing attack and if they can’t do that then the Colts will continually make first downs and score points. Miami can’t afford a shootout here and this game has the makings to become one.
