Dolphins try to find offensive footing against beleaguered Titans defense

Posted October 09, 2017

Will the Titans (2-2) dig in?

Don't expect the Dolphins to make a change, though.

"I've been in a few offenses now", Weeden said.

The second leg of the teaser is a classic case of a superior team playing at home needing to do little more than win outright. "If anybody's doing it wrong, it needs to be down to one guy, to where we can still have success on the play".

The Titans coach remains hopeful that Mariota will play despite a strained hamstring. Defensively, a Cameron Wake sack was the lone highlight as the Saints put up 347 yards of total offense on the Miami D, while holding onto the rock for over 34 minutes in the Dolphins' loss.

Cutler has nothing to lose against the Titans.

The start could be critical.

Speaking of the Dolphins defense, they've held opponents to 20 points or less in their three games this season and considering the near historic shittiness of their offense over the last two weeks, that's quite a feat. They're now ranked No. 28 in time of possession, and they must hold the ball longer or score more points if they hope to complement their defense that has played well enough to win.

Instead, Dolphins fans were shouting, "We want Moore", as in backup Matt Moore, as the Jay Cutler experiment in Miami was not getting any better on Sunday. They're averaging 138.8 yards rushing, which ranks sixth.

"I'm excited about it", Weeden said. "It fucking screams Black Panther to me, and I don't know about you, but I don't want any leather vehicle coats or berets or Black Panther paraphernalia in the locker room". "I enjoy it. I can't wait".

Pundits have criticized Cutler his entire career and they have begun in Miami after only 3 games. That's compared with last year's 4.8 average, worst in the league. "I'm just glad to see him in good health". "We like the tall, long corners that come up and press and play physical at the line of scrimmage".

Maxwell was listed as questionable on the Dolphins injury report. Former Heisman Trophy victor Derrick Henry is churning out 4.6 yards per tote this season, but Mariota leads the club with three rushing touchdowns. It sure looked like Cassel had an incomplete pass fall to the ground harmlessly, but Miami's Reshad Jones snapped up the ball and ran it back for a touchdown.
