    The Miami Dolphins will return to the field following a bye week when they visit the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.

    Miami is 5-5 on the season, but it has only won a single game away from Hard Rock Stadium. The Colts also sit at 5-5 this year and this game could ultimately be a deciding factor in the Wild Card standings. The Dolphins should be well rested after a tough first ten games of the season. The Colts have won a pair of games following their bye in the ninth week of the season.

    Ryan Tannehill will be back in action for this game, after missing five consecutive outings. Tannehill was limited in practice, but he should be ready to go on Sunday. The veteran quarterback should be a welcome sight for Miami's offense, following some recent struggles.

    Miami's defense could have a tough day ahead of it and quarterback Andrew Luck may only be part of the problem. Luck is having another big season and he figures to be dominant once again in this game. The Dolphins however will need to watch out for the ground attack as well. Miami has allowed over 140 yards per game on the ground and running back Marlon Mack could be utilized early and often.

    Luck has made three-touchdown games a norm this season, as he has reached the mark in seven straight games and counting. Getting pressure on Luck could turn the tables, but that is easier said than done. Luck was not sacked in the last five games and the Dolphins are ranked towards the bottom of the league in sacks. That combination could mean Luck has plenty of time in the pocket on Sunday, which is something Miami will need to do everything to avoid.

    Ja'Wuan James, A.J. Derby, Danny Amendola, DeVante Parker, Davon Godchaux, T.J. McDonald and Ted Larsen were all listed as questionable for this game on Miami's final injury report.

    The Dolphins and Colts will kick Sunday's game off at 4:25 p.m.
