After a much-needed bye week, the Miami Dolphins will return to the field this Sunday to take on the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Both the Dolphins and Colts sit at 5-5 as they’re tied for the final wild-card spot in the AFC. A win would have the Dolphins sitting pretty entering their last five games of the season. A loss would significantly damage their postseason aspirations.
Ryan Tannehill will return after missing the last five weeks due to a capsule injury in his throwing shoulder. Although he was limited during this week’s practice, Tannehill will start on Sunday.
The Dolphins will hope Tannehill’s return will be the missing key for their offense. Miami’s offense hasn’t scored an offensive touchdown since their game against the Texans on Oct. 25.
The biggest factor on Sunday could be if the Dolphins can slow down Colts quarterback Andrew Luck. During the Colts last seven games, Luck has thrown at least three touchdowns passes as the team has won their last four games. The Dolphins will also need to slow down the Colts rushing attack as their defensive unit is allowing 142 yards on the ground per game.
