(Indianapolis, IN) The Miami Dolphins defense made sure Andrew Luck couldn't pull off one of his patented fourth-quarter comebacks on Sunday, as the visitors edged the Colts 24-20 at Lucas Oil Stadium.
The Dolphins jumped out to a 14-3 lead in the first quarter, before Luck rallied the Colts back to a 14-14 halftime tie.
The Colts led 20-17 in the 3rd quarter before Miami tight end Charles Clay scored on a one-yard run for what turned out to be the game-winning touchdown.
Clay also caught five passes for 109 yards. Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill passed for 319 yards and one touchdown.
Luck threw for 321 yards and a touchdown, but also threw a key interception.
The Indianapolis Colts may have lost more than the game on Sunday, as two key starters on offense were injured.
Guard Donald Thomas tore his quadriceps and Coach Chuck Pagano says it's a potentially season-ending injury.
The team will now turn to rookie Hugh Thornton at left guard.
Receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey is having an MRI on a shoulder injury, and the team expects to have additional information on that injury Monday.
