Titans QB Marcus Mariota (Hamstring) Not Expected to Play vs. Dolphins

Posted October 09, 2017

In other words, they wanted starting quarterback Jay Cutler benched.

Gase said he counted at least five drops by receivers.

That first game Miami Dolphins win was all about kickers and field goals and this one was a defense that emerged as a beast and just dominated.

Despite the heat Cutler is getting from the fans and some football pundits in Miami area, Salguero is still a believer that the veteran quarterback will pull it through somehow. He has also rushed for 116 yards and three scores.

Things were close, however, and the Buccaneers were pushing in the fourth, but ultimately came up short to ensure the Patriots would claim a confidence boosting road win and move to 3-2.

Quarterback Marcus Mariota is going to be a game-time decision, and therefore might not be playing the game against the Dolphins. he is out due to a hamstring injury.

Just how much longer Cassel will be needed remains to be seen.

As I mentioned above, the Dolphins' strong run defense versus the Titans' rushing attack will be a matchup to keep an eye on.

Mariota sustained a strained hamstring during the Titans loss to Houston in Week 4.

Reshad Jones had the wherewithal to scoop up the ball and score. As such, the inclusion of the backup quarterback seemed to indicate that they'd rely on the running game.

The Titans couldn't get out of their own way, either.

What appeared to be a 59-yard touchdown pass to tight end Delanie Walker was called back because of a penalty.

GARDENS, Fla. - It was painful to watch the Tennessee Titans try to muster an offense without Marcus Mariota.

Last season, Cassel won his only start and threw for 150 yards, one touchdown and one pick in that game. When Cutler goes 12 of 26 for 92 yards and a 52.1 passer rating as he did Sunday, he knows it doesn't actually jeopardize his job.

I hate president Donald Trump, but at least I know exactly where he stands and what it is I'm hating.

The safest bet in sports is Mike Mularkey not being able to win three games in a row, which is the reason I picked against the Titans last week.

The Dolphins defense gave the team a boost in the first quarter.

Referee Bill Vinovich eventually announced that the loose ball was a fumble and Miami had scored. "You're not going to have success if we don't play better than that". "We did what we thought he could do, and that wasn't very much, but enough". "I don't think it should be an issue in the future, and I'll be fine for next week". OG Anthony Steen was taken for X-rays after the game. The Titans had a hard time containing Will Fuller last week, a similar type of player, so this could be the week that Stills flashes, making him a good DFS option and even a flex type in redraft leagues.
