This battle between AFC foes features the Miami Dolphins and the Indianapolis Colts. Both teams are sitting at 5-5 and each team is trailing their division leader by two games.
The Dolphins and Colts last met in 2015, which resulted in a 18-12 Indianapolis victory. In fact, the Colts have won four of the last five meeting with the Dolphins dating back to 2006.
The Dolphins started the season 3-0 and were looking to have improve, but after they were blown out by the Patriots in week four, their season has started to go downhill. Since week three, they are 2-5 and were blown out by Green Bay last week.
During their 2-5 stretch the Dolphins have only averaged 17.7 points per game. This may have a lot to do with the fact that Ryan Tannahill has been out of the lineup several times this year. He is however listed as probable for the game this Sunday, so it is possible the offense will be sparked by his return.
The Dolphins can only be described as below average this season. They allow about 391.6 total yards per game, which is 27th in the league. Their rush defense allows 141.3 yards per game, putting at 29th in the league. Their pass defense allows around 250.3 passing yards per game, which ranks slightly better at 19th but it is still an area that needs to see improvement.
Overall the Dolphins do not look like at playoff team this year. They can help their chances with a win, but it will mean their defense will need to play a complete game.
The Colts are on a roll right now, having won their last four games in a row. This streak happened after a 1-5 start and has put them right back into contention for the AFC South title. With a matchup against the Houston Texans coming up in a few weeks, the Colts will need to use their current momentum to have a chance to take over the division.
Andrew Luck has been a big part of the winning streak the Colts are currently in. The Colts offense scores 29.8 points per game, which is 5th in the league. They also gain an average of 381.5 total yards per game, which ranks 9th in the league. Look for the Colts to continue to feed T.Y. Hilton, who had a break out game last week.
Overall as a team, the defense is allowing 24.9 points per game. This ranks in the bottom half of the league at 20th. However, during their four game win streak, the Colts are allowing 17.3. The defense has clearly stepped it up and has given the Colts a fighting chance to claw their way back into the division.
If the Colts can continue winning, they will have a real shot to win the division for the first time since 2014.
