Final Score: Miami 24, Indianapolis 20

Indianapolis,  IN (Sports  Network) - Ryan Tannehill threw for 319 yards and a 
touchdown and Charles Clay had the go-ahead score late in the third quarter as 
the  Miami  Dolphins stayed undefeated with  a 24-20 win over the Indianapolis 
Colts. 

Tannehill  was  in complete control of  the Miami (2-0) offense, connecting on 
23-of-34  passes without an interception. Lamar Miller rushed for 69 yards and 
a  score  while Mike Wallace, who  publicly complained about his role with the 
team  following a  one-catch performance  in  his Dolphins'  debut last  week, 
reeled in nine catches for 115 yards and a touchdown. 

Clay  caught  five passes  for 109 yards,  including a 70-yard pitch-and-catch 
late  in  the first quarter  which set  up Miller's touchdown plunge. Trailing 
20-17 with a few minutes left in the third period, Clay took it in from a yard 
out  to put  the Dolphins  up, and  a crucial  sack of  Andrew Luck  by Philip 
Wheeler  on  fourth down  in  the  game's closing  moments  proved  to be  the 
difference. 

Luck tossed for 321 yards, a touchdown and an interception on 25-of-43 for the 
Colts  (1-1), who  travel  to the  west  coast  for a  showdown  with the  San 
Francisco 49ers next week. 

Ahmad  Bradshaw, starting because of a Vick Ballard ACL tear, carried 15 times 
for 65 yards and a score while T.Y. Hilton caught six balls for 124 yards, all 
in the first half. 

The Dolphins will host Atlanta in week 3.
