Andrew Luck Wins Rookie Battle As Colts Down Dolphins 23-20
Andrew Luck threw for an NFL rookie-record 433 yards and won the battle with fellow first-round draft pick Ryan Tannehill, as the Indianapolis Colts earned a 23-20 victory over the Miami Dolphins in a battle of surprising teams at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Neither team was expected to be over .500 entering Week 9 of the NFL season, especially with rookie quarterbacks at the helm. Only one team left the field with a winning record, however, as the Colts (5-3) won their third straight and the Dolphins (4-4) had a three-game win streak stopped.
Luck, the top pick in April's draft, completed 30-of-48 passes with a pair of touchdowns for the Colts and directed a 13-play, 69-yard drive that ended with a 43-yard field goal from Adam Vinatieri that provided the winning margin with 5:58 remaining.
Tannehill, selected eighth overall, finished 22-of-38 for 290 yards with a touchdown in defeat.
