Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Miami pulled off the road upset, beating Andrew Luck and the Colts to move to 2-0.

The Miami Dolphins held off a strong effort from Andrew Luck and upset the Indianapolis Colts, 24-20, on the road Sunday afternoon.

The Dolphins jumped out to a quick 14-3 lead after touchdowns from Mike Wallace and Lamar Miller, but the Colts answered back in the second quarter. Luck hooked up with Coby Fleener from three yards out to cut the deficit to four points, and Ahmad Bradshaw put Indy ahead with a goal line plunge at the end of the second quarter. The Dolphins kicked a last-second field goal to tie things up at halftime, 17-17.

Fleener appeared to have his second touchdown of the game in the third quarter, but it got called back on a penalty. The Colts settled for an Adam Vinatieri field goal to take the 20-17 lead.

Miami took the lead back with a one-yard run by tight end Charles Clay. The Colts were driving to take the lead late in the fourth quarter, but Luck threw a crucial interception to Brent Grimes in the end zone. The Dolphins bled the clock and stopped a last-minute Luck drive, sealing the victory.

Fantasy studs and duds

After being a non-factor in Week 1, Mike Wallace scorched the Colts this week with nine catches for 115 yards and the touchdown. T.Y. Hilton was a waiver wire hit, grabbing six catches for 124 yards.

Injury report

Colts offensive lineman Donald Thomas was carted off with a leg injury. Pro Football Talk later reported that he has a torn quad muscle. Wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey left the game with rib injuries and was questionable to return.

Did they cover?

The Colts were one-point favorites and failed to cover by losing.
