Dolphins vs. Colts score: Luck finds Hilton, Colts back in front, 20-17 after third

So far the scorecard reads like so: Andrew Luck two, Ryan Tannehill one.

Tannehill and the Dolphins had a strong second quarter and took a 17-13 lead into halftime, but Luck steered the Colts back in front in the third quarter, connecting with T.Y. Hilton for a touchdown that gave Indianapolis a 20-17 lead.

In a matchup that features two first-round quarterbacks and, surprisingly, has AFC playoff implications, the two rookies have both been impressive, but Andrew Luck bettered his counterpart the third quarter with his second touchdown pass of the day.

After once again converting several long third downs – Luck has consistently converted third-and-longs against the Dolphins' defense today – the Stanford rookie flung a prayer into double coverage and Hilton came down with the 36-yard score. Hilton now has five catches for 95 yards and the score.

Luck has thrown for 379 yards and two touchdowns today, Tannehill has 234 passing yards and one score. Additionally, Colts receiver Donnie Avery left the game with a hip injury. His return to the game is questionable.
