Phinsider Radio: Carving the path to victory for the Miami Dolphins against the Indianapolis Colts

The Miami Dolphins will take on the Indianapolis Colts in what could be a season defining game.

NFL: Miami Dolphins at Houston Texans Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins have landed in Indianapolis and will take on the Colts on Sunday. Both teams are sporting a 5-5 record but they are both teams headed in opposite directions. Can the Dolphins stop their skid and right the ship or will they see their playoff hopes fade away with a loss?

It’s going to start on the ground with Dolphins running back Frank Gore as he will be the key to the Dolphins offense. They’ll need a great game from him with a dash of Kenyan Drake as well. We talk about Gore and everything that he brings to the table for the Dolphins offense.

But, Gore won’t be able to do it alone. They’ll need help from Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill. How will he be able to beat the Colts? To begin, he better hope the Colts don’t blitz because his grades aren’t the best. He’ll have to rely on a different receiver corps compared to what he had when he last played. Gone is Albert Wilson and Jakeem Grant. Questionable for Sunday’s game is Danny Amendola and DeVante Parker. Can Tannehill boost those around him and give this offense the spark it needs, or will he continue with the struggles he had before getting injured?

Even if Tannehill comes back and sparks the offense, will it be enough to hold off Colts quarterback Andrew Luck? Luck and the Colts offense have been playing at an elite level the past few weeks and they are red hot coming into this game. The good news for Dolphins fans is that the Miami defense is ranked towards the top of the NFL when looking at their red zone defense and when it comes to forcing turnovers. Which force will come out on top? There’s a certain key to beating Luck and it’s not the blitz. Tune in to hear what we have to say.

The Dolphins will need to do quite a few things right in order to win this game and it’s not going to be easy. Join us on #PhinsiderRadio as we lay out the path to victory for the Dolphins!
