INDIANAPOLIS — The Miami Dolphins extended the longest domination of a National Football League rivalry Sunday, beating the Colts for a 14th straight time.
Dan Marino was the key in continuing the streak, throwing three touchdown passes to lead Miami to a 23-10 victory over Indianapolis (0-2). He completed 23 of 32 passes for 254 yards with touchdown throws of 18 yards to Troy Stradford, 10 yards to Mark Clayton and 6 yards to Jim Jensen.
Marino completed passes to seven different receivers as Miami rose to 1-1.
The Colts' last victory over Miami was a 30-17 road win on Oct. 5, 1980. The Colts' last home victory over Miami came in 1977.
Marino, the NFL's all-time pass-efficiency leader, extended his streak of consecutive games with a touchdown pass to 25. The Miami quarterback seemed to be toying with Indianapolis safety Freddie Robinson, although he swore it was unintentional.
