FROM THE GAME

Here's a look at some notes, quotes and anecdotes from the Dolphins' 21-13 victory over the Indianapolis Colts.

-- The Dolphins will be holding their breath for the next several hours until it is determined just how serious the knee injury suffered by cornerback Patrick Surtain is. The original word was that he had sustained a sprained knee, and the team can only hope it's nothing more serious because the cornerback is very thing, as was demonstrated Sunday.

--By rushing for 132 yards against the Colts, Ricky Williams became the first Dolphins running back since 1994 with back-to-back 100-yard games. That's pretty amazing when you think about it.

--Edgerrin James gashed the Dolphins for about 80 yards rushing in the first half, but then was held to minus-3 yards on six carries in the third quarter. Included in that total was the goal-line stand where James carried the ball four straight times for 1, 0, 0 and minus-1 yard.

--The only other injury from the game was a groin problem sustained by safety Scott McGarrahan, who was back in the game shortly after.

-- How bad was the fourth quarter? The Dolphins missed a field goal, allowed a sack and were penalized six times (Sam Madison for defensive holding, Arturo Freeman for pass interference, Randy McMichael for illegal procedure, Todd Wade for holding, Adewale Ogunleye for offside and Jamar Fletcher for pass interference).

-- The Colts wound up with clear advantages in first downs (29-17) and total yards (422-342).

-- Dolphins players held a players-only meeting after the game.

-- The Dolphins didn't have a sack against the Colts because a holding penalty on Sam Madison nullifed Ogunleye's take-down of Manning.

What they said:

LB Morlon Greenwood: "It was a very exciting finish, a finish we didn't want to have. That's what it's always been like every time we come to Indy."

LB Derrick Rodgers: "We knew they weren't going to lay down. Once you get somebody down, you've got to keep your foot on their throats so they stay down."

TE Randy McMichael: "It was a complete team victory. Everybody played well."
