Dolphins vs. Colts NFL Week 2: TV Schedule, Betting Odds, Prediction

Colts-Dolphins

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

TV Schedule: Sunday, Sept. 15, 1:00 p.m. ET, CBS

Stadium: Lucas Oil Stadium

Weather: Dome

Line: Indianapolis (-2.5)

The Indianapolis Colts are coming off an ugly win against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. Andrew Luck and the Colts were projected to beat down on the Raiders, but the Colts couldn’t stop quarterback Terrelle Pryor from running all over them. Throwing for two touchdowns, including a late fourth quarter score that was the difference in the game, Luck also had 178 yards passing and a 19-yard touchdown run. Second-year running back Vick Ballard led all rushers with 63 yards on 13 carries and wide out Reggie Wayne remained the favorite target of luck with eight catches for 96 yards and a score.

On the other side of the field, the Miami Dolphins also won an ugly contest against the Cleveland Browns. Second-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill started his 2013 campaign off strong, hoping to avoid a sophomore-slump. He passed for 272 yards and a touchdown, hitting his favorite target — for now — Brian Hartline nine times for 114 yards and a touchdown. Newly-acquired Mike Wallace played frustrated, catching just one pass for 19 yards. Running back Lamar Miller was expected to do big things, but ran for just three yards on 10 carries.

Defensively, the Colts couldn’t contain Pryor, but otherwise kept the run game of the Raiders in check. They allowed 217 yards through the air from the first-year starter. Some work needs to be done by the Colts if they want to contend for another playoff spot. The Dolphins created three turnovers through the air from Brandon Weeden and kept the Browns’ run game to the bare minimum.

PREDICTION: Dolphins 10, Colts 28

Brandon Marshall Tells Rich Eisen He Hasn't Spoken To Jay Cutler

During a recent appearance on ' The Rich Eisen Show', former Chicago Bears and current New York Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall was asked about his relationship with his old quarterback, Jay Cutler. Marshall, who has zero chill, replied that he had not spoken to Cutler in "two years." Naturally, Eisen was shocked and mentioned that they were teammates just a season ago. Marshall essentially confirmed that they were not talking off the field during his last year in Chicago, but ultimately wished Cutler well.
