The Indianapolis Colts arrive at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida Sunday, October 3, 2021 as a two and a half point underdog against the Dolphins. Jacoby Brissett will get the start again as Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is still on the injured reserve due to fractured ribs. Quarterback for the Colts the past four years, Brissett will be looking to get his first win of the season in a starting role for the Dolphins.

Devante Parker, Will Fuller, and Jaylen Waddle will be the key to winning this game. Neither player has really had a major explosive play that has been an impact on a game as of yet. However, games can’t continue through the season without at least of Miami’s receiving corps to have an explosive play and Sunday’s game against the Colts may be that game.

However, the Dolphins offensive line will have to play better than the line has played so far this year. But the offensive line will have to make plays without center Michael Deiter who was placed on the injured reserve this week. Taking his place will be Greg Mancz.

Miami’s defense has struggled at times this season and so far don’t seem to be able to put all the pieces together like they did last year. Xavien Howard and Emmanuel Ogbah are the two strengths in the front and secondary and should be big contributors for the Dolphins Sunday.

The Colts are hoping to get their first win in Hard Rock Stadium but won’t be an easy task after getting hit hard with the injury bug. Quenton Nelson and Braden Smith are both out with injuries for Sunday’s game. And Carson Wentz, Jack Doyle, and Jonathan Taylor should play but are all questionable.

Wentz will try to get it going after starting with three straight losses. If T.Y. Hilton can be a contributor in this game then Wentz and the Colts should score significantly.

Jonathan Taylor will be a player for the Dolphins to slow down. If he can get the run game going then the matchup should be an interesting day.

The game shouldn’t come down to a field goal or overtime as it did against the Raiders. If it does come to a field goal, don’t expect Jason Sanders to miss twice. After last week’s missed field goal, Sanders will be looking to get redemption in any kind of way.

At the end of the day, Brissett will be up to the challenge against his former team. The key however, for the Dolphins will be the Dolphins defense. Carson Wentz led the NFL last season in interceptions while Xavien Howard led the NFL last season in interceptions caught. So, Miami definitely will have the edge going into this game.

Game day is around the corner.
