Dolphins fans chant for Matt Moore after Jay Cutler throws an interception

Titans vs. Dolphins 5-question preview with Dolphins Wire

While Mariota certainly is very fast and the offense occasionally caters to his athleticism with a designed run or option play, it is not their offense.

Through the first four weeks of the season, the Miami Dolphins have the NFL's worst statistical offense.

The Titans signed veteran quarterback Brandon Weeden last week, who will serve as Cassel's backup. Miami only sacked Drew Brees once last week and got three tackles for a loss, but limited the Saints to just 86 total yards rushing and held Brees to 29 of 41 passing for 268 yards and two touchdowns to go with 6-of-13 on third downs.

For the second straight week, the Miami Dolphins' defense failed to reach the end zone.

Stills is one of those big-play types who disappears for large stretches, full games even, without doing much, and then can suddenly strike for a long touchdown catch.

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota, considered a game-time decision due to a hamstring injury, has been ruled inactive Sunday against the Miami Dolphins, the team announced. Tennessee may lean heavily on a running game that is averaging an NFL-best 5.0 yards per carry, with 2016 AFC rushing leader DeMarco Murray (5.1) rumbling for 121 yards in Tennessee's 30-17 victory over Miami on October 9, 2016. This game against Tennessee could be a winnable one, especially if Mariota is unable to suit up.


It was the fact that Marcus Mariota left the game at halftime with a strained hamstring, and seeing how the already-reeling Titans fared without him.

While the season is off to a disappointing start, the Dolphins have improved their run defense, which ranks fourth in the National Football League allowing 3.1 yards per carry.

So far this season, Mariota has completed 60 percent of his passes for 792 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions.

"We want to make sure that we show them we're there to play early and don't give them any type of air to breathe", Titans linebacker Avery Williamson says. As if that weren't enough, they had to do so after an embarrassing loss to division foe the New York Jets. He wasn't Aaron Rodgers, but Cassel did what he needed to do for the Titans to win the game.

This week Dolphin fans should root for the ultimate underdog, Jay Cutler, against the Titans.

While the play here is on the Titans, the handicap is nearly all about the Dolphins.
