Tannehill wins rematch vs. Luck

INDIANAPOLIS — This time, Ryan Tannehill was celebrating in Indianapolis.

And Miami's defense had Andrew Luck fuming.

Tannehill did a better job managing his offense in the second half and cheered his defense after it thwarted yet another Colts comeback bid in Miami's victory.

"It's nice to win and that's the important thing no matter who we are going against," Tannehill said.

It was a stark contrast from a year ago, when the two first-round draft picks met as rookies. That day, Luck threw for an NFL rookie record 433 yards and two scores in Indy's three-point win.

This time the quarterbacks had similar numbers but Luck had a fourth-quarter scoring chance end when cornerback Brent Grimes intercepted him in the end zone. Luck then drove the Colts to the Miami 23-yard line with 1:45 left but Miami forced three straight incompletions and sacked him on fourth down.

"I guess I'm a little angry at myself," Luck said.
