Andrew Luck Sweepstakes: Colts Stay Winless, Pull Ahead Of Victorious Dolphins

The Indianapolis Colts now have the inside track to the number one draft pick. They can't beat anyone, while the Miami Dolphins proved that they are trying to at least win something.

Indianapolis went down quietly to the Atlanta Falcons at home, losing 31-7. The Colts managed 186 yards of total offense and let Atlanta march for 432 yards and nearly 38 minutes in time of possession. Indianapolis also got burned by Julio Jones on two pretty impressive touchdown catches, as the Colts looked totally hapless in this one

Miami has come close to winning a few football games, and they finally broke through against the Kansas City Chiefs. Kansas City was coming off an impressive Monday Night Football victory over the San Diego Chargers, and they came out flat against the Dolphins, getting bulldozed by Matt Moore, Reggie Bush and Brandon Marshall. Miami won 31-3 and moved to 1-7 on the season to ensure they won't be the second (potentially third?) 0-16 team in NFL history.

They might have avoided that ignominious mark, but they might have lost the battle for Andrew Luck. Indianapolis now should own his draft rights; whether they end up drafting him when they still have Peyton Manning on their roster is another question altogether.
