Tonight's Game

MIAMI (3-0) at INDIANAPOLIS (3-0)

Channel 7, 6 p.m.

Jimmy Johnson in prime time against Captain Comeback, Jim Harbaugh. The Colts will be playing before a sell-out crowd, and while missing several key performers because of injuries, they have repeatedly overcome such shortcomings, including last week's dramatic victory over Dallas. Miami leads the AFC with 11 takeaways and has the No. 1 rushing defense, but will it work against Colts' magic?

* Say what: In only two seasons, Harbaugh has three of the Colts' seven best comeback victories in Indianapolis history.

* Player to watch: Miami rookie running back Karim Abdul-Jabbar, who has rushed for more than 100 yards in two games, will be matched against the league's eighth-best rushing defense.

* Finally: They are no fluke. The Colts are 9-2 in their last 11 games against the AFC East, including a sweep of Miami a year ago.
