The Indianapolis Colts host the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, and the visiting team will be out for revenge. 

The Colts beat the Dolphins 23-20 last season, as Andrew Luck led the Colts on a game-winning drive late in the fourth quarter. Ryan Tannehill played well in that game, passing for 290 yards and a touchdown in the defeat. 

Both teams enter Week 2 with a mark in the win column. 

Oakland nearly knocked off Indy, though, thanks to an impressive performance by Terrelle Pryor. But Andrew Luck was sharp in the passing game with two touchdowns and zero interceptions, and he added another score on the ground—the game-winner. 

Miami overcame a sloppy Cleveland Browns squad in Week 1, winning 23-10, but it wasn't pretty. 

Tannehill and Mike Wallace only hooked up once for 15 yards, and the team's rushing attack only generated 20 yards on 23 carries. 

It'll take a better effort this week against the Colts for Miami to win its second game of the 2013 season. 

Here's a quick look at when and where you can catch this upcoming game.

Will Mike Wallace Be a Factor for Miami?

Many NFL analysts wondered how Wallace would fit with Miami this year and thought the Dolphins overpaid for his services. He signed a five-year contract this spring worth $60 million, and though he was an explosive weapon with the Pittsburgh Steelers he wasn't the No. 1 receiver. 

Wallace and Tannehill struggled to develop chemistry this summer during training camp and the preseason, as noted by Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel

They didn't fare any better in Week 1, as Wallace hauled in just one ball for 15 yards on five targeted passes. After the game, the newly rich receiver was furious. When asked about his poor performance, he told reporters, "ask coach not my game plan," as noted by Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald:

If the frustrated receiver can channel his frustration into focus against the Colts, then the Dolphins have a good chance of winning the game. To this point in his tenure with Miami, however, Wallace has failed to live up to his huge, free-agent contract. 


Given Luck's penchant for winning tight games, it's hard to bet against him.

Miami couldn't run the ball to save itself in Week 1, and Indy's defense appears to be sturdier against the run this season. Though Pryor rushed for 112 yards, Oakland's traditional running game was shut down for the most part, with Darren McFadden gaining just 48 yards on 17 carries.

It'll take a huge game from Tannehill for Miami to come away with the victory. 

Miami will stay close, thanks to its underrated defense, but in the end, the home team will win. 

Final Score 

Colts win 27-20.
