The Indianapolis Colts (5-5) have done an astounding job at keeping franchise quarterback Andrew Luck upright this season. The play of the offensive line has made a world of difference as the Colts are now right back in playoff contention. Indianapolis hosts the Miami Dolphins (5-5) at Lucas Oil Stadium as Week 12 action continues on Sunday.

Coming off a 28-point victory against the Tennessee titans last week, the Colts have now won four straight games to get back into playoff contention. They currently sit at 5-5, one of five AFC teams at .500 at the start of Week 12.
In addition to Indianapolis and Miami, the other three 5-5 teams in the AFC are Tennessee, Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals.
Speaking of Miami, starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill returns after missing a month with a shoulder injury. Even though Tannehill isn’t all the way back yet, he believes he can still play at a high enough level in order to defeat Indianapolis and put Miami back on the path to a potential playoff berth.
“I’m not quite 100 percent. But I’m confident I’ve made all the throws I will need over the course of a game. I don’t feel like any aspect of my game has been taken away.”
The Dolphins were one of four teams to start 3-0 this season. Since winning their first three games, the Dolphins have dropped five of the past seven games, primarily due to injuries on both sides of the ball.
Miami wide receivers Danny Amendola (hamstring) and DaVante Parker (shoulder) are each questionable heading into Sunday. Indianapolis is predominantly healthy for the first time all season, looking to build off of a dominant performance from last week.
