Titans vs. Dolphins preview:
The Titans lost last week 27-20 to the Texans, but they looked good doing it. DeMarco Murray, especially, seems to be rounding into form. In the Titan's last two games Murray rushed for a combined 209 yards and three touchdowns. Marcus Mariota hasn't looked spectacular as of late, but this Dolphins team is one he could have a rebound game against.
The Dolphins are coming off a 22-7 loss to Cincinnati and enter the game with a 1-3 record, their only win being over Cleveland in overtime. So far this year, Ryan Tannehill has thrown six touchdowns, but he's also thrown five interceptions and fumbled four times, which is...not great. If the Dolphins want to win this game, he has to take care of the ball.
Titans vs. Dolphins prediction:
The Titans get the win with terrific performances from both Mariota and Murray. Although the Titans are last in scoring offense this season, the Dolphins field one of the worst defenses in the NFL, which comes to the delight of Mariota, who is looking to get back on track.
Ryan Tannehill throws two picks leading to easy scores for the Titans, and as a result the voices calling for Tannehill to be benched only get louder.
