Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - Andrew Luck threw for an NFL rookie-record
433 yards and won the battle with fellow first-round draft pick Ryan
Tannehill, as the Indianapolis Colts earned a 23-20 victory over the Miami
Dolphins in a battle of surprising teams at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Neither team was expected to be over .500 entering Week 9 of the NFL season,
especially with rookie quarterbacks at the helm. Only one team left the field
with a winning record, however, as the Colts (5-3) won their third straight
and the Dolphins (4-4) had a three-game win streak stopped.
Luck, the top pick in April's draft, completed 30-of-48 passes with a pair of
touchdowns for the Colts and directed a 13-play, 69-yard drive that ended with
a 43-yard field goal from Adam Vinatieri that provided the winning margin with
Tannehill, selected eighth overall, finished 22-of-38 for 290 yards with a
touchdown in defeat.
