Miami Dolphins (1-0) at Indianapolis Colts (1-0)
This might be one of the better games of the week, but I’m giving the edge to the Colts in this one.

With Andrew Luck coming off an opening week performance of 178 yards (18-of-23) and two touchdown passes, along with receiver Reggie Wayne gaining eight receptions for 96 yards, with one touchdown, the Colts will be tough to beat.

For the Dolphins, quarterback Ryan Tannehill is coming off a 272 yard and one touchdown in a 23-10 win over the Cleveland Browns.

One problem for the Dolphins last week was their rushing attack as Daniel Thomas led them with just 14 yards.

Going into this game, I just have the feeling after Colts owner Jim Irsay’s tweet of demanding better protection of Andrew Luck, the Colts might have a reason to play better than they did in their opener against the Raiders, where they won by just four points at 21-17.

That message might have been the motivation they needed headed into this game.

Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. EST
