Colts run out of comeback magic in loss to Miami

(Continued)

The Colts squeezed a 30-yard field goal by Adam Vinatieri — who earlier hit the upright from 52 yards — in between and ended the first quarter trailing by 11.

“This team is going to fight,” Indianapolis head coach Chuck Pagano said.

“We know that. We know that they’re going to play for 60 minutes, and it doesn’t matter what the score is, what the situation is. They’re going to play for 60 minutes.”

Indianapolis began its rally with a 3-yard touchdown pass from Luck to Fleener less than two minutes into the second quarter. The Colts took the lead for the first time with 1:26 left in the half when Ahmad Bradshaw capped a six-play, 78-yard drive with a 1-yard run.

Miami tied it just before halftime with a 54-yard field goal by rookie Caleb Sturgis.

Tannehill’s lone mistake — a fumble forced during a sack by Jerrell Freeman — set the Colts up at the Dolphins’ 39-yard line early in the third quarter. Luck appeared to find Fleener for another touchdown, but the play was called back because of an illegal shift penalty.

Indianapolis settled instead for a 38-yard Vinatieri field goal with 11:35 left in the quarter, then lost the lead for good less than seven minutes later.

Luck finished 25-of-43 for 321 yards with one touchdown and one interception, and Hilton had a career-high 124 receiving yards on six catches.

But the only numbers that mattered where on the scoreboard.

“The only thing that this does is prove that we are not going undefeated,”

Wayne said. “It’s a marathon, not a sprint. So hopefully we can look at this film, correct our mistakes and remember this bitter taste that we have and hopefully we can turn this thing around.”
