No Andrew Luck magic this time. The Dolphins’ defense made sure of that. After watching Luck escape sack after sack Philip Wheeler and Randy Starks dropped the Colts quarterback on fourth-and-10 sealing the Dolphins’ 24-20 victory. The win lifted Miami to 2-0 for the first time since 2010. Ryan Tannehill was excellent completing 23 of 34 passes for 319 yards to win the duel of second-year quarterbacks. Mike Wallace had nine catches for 115 yards and Charles Clay added 5 for 109. The Dolphins scored at such a prolific clip in the first quarter the defense barely had a chance to catch its breath. The first touchdown drive took just 2:19 a 58-yard jaunt capped by Wallace’s first touchdown as a Dolphin. He caught a bubble screen on the right edge had a path cleared by blockers and went 18 yards to the end zone. After a 30-yard Adam Vinatieri field goal the Dolphins struck again spurred by a 67-yard completion from Tannehill to Clay. The next play Lamar Miller dashed 10 yards to the end zone.
