The Dolphins suffered a rough 31–12 loss to the Packers last week, unable to hold back Green Bay’s electric offense with Adam Jones and Aaron Rodgers. Miami’s problems started immediately when Brock Osweiler fumbled a shotgun snap on the opening drive. The Dolphins recorded four field goals but couldn’t find a way to score any touchdowns.
Andrew Luck had another incredible game in the Colts’ 38-10 over the Titans last week. Luck threw three touchdowns and the Colts scored another two on the ground. The quarterback was not sacked for a fifth straight game as he went 23 of 29 for 297 yards.
After starting for Ted Larsen against the Packers two weeks ago, Jake Brendel will once again get the nod versus the Colts.
Although Larsen is active, Brendel will start at left guard for the second consecutive game. Last week, Dolphins head coach Adam Gase gave Brendel compliments for his play despite the 31-12 loss against the Packers.
