The Miami Dolphins travel to Indianapolis to take on the Colts in the second week of the season. It will pair two old friends against one another. Dolphins rookie pass rusher Dion Jordan played in the Pac-12 at Oregon and second year quarterback Andrew Luck played in the Pac-12 at Stanford.
Jordan and the Oregon squad never lost to Andrew Luck, at least when Jordan played as a starter.
“Yeah, me and Luck know each other pretty well,” Jordan told reporters this week, per The Miami Herald. “I never lost to Andrew Luck. I don’t plan on it.”
Colts quarterback Luck is looking to reverse that trend.
“I try to forget most of my matchups against Oregon, so thanks for bringing those up,” Luck said. “I just remember [he’s] fast, athletic, eats up space and physical. A lot of respect for him as a player.”
The storyline adds more motivation for Luck than for Jordan. Nevertheless the Miami defense looked fairly well in week 1. They held Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson to 47 yards rushing last week. The flip side of that is that Brandon Weeden threw for 289 yards and imagine what Andrew Luck could do. The Dolphins did intercept Weeden three times as well though.
