Marcus Mariota a Game-Time Decision vs. Dolphins with Hamstring Injury

Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota is nursing a hamstring injury was designated as inactive Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.

According to oddsmakers at, Tennessee is favored on the road, as the Titans are getting odds of -1 point against the Dolphins. Having said that, they found success time and again last season with the running game, DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry leading the charge.

The Dolphins had a promising outlook going into this season, but that all fell apart when QB Ryan Tannehill was lost to a torn ACL. They just keep repeating what appears to be the National Football League company line: He doesn't know the offense, or he doesn't fit the system.

It took almost four quarters for the Dolphins to find a rhythm on offense but they finally put together a 10 play, 58 yard drive, giving the Dolphins a 16-10 lead they would not relinquish. DeVante Parker and Jarvis Landry shared the team lead with 6 receptions with Parker putting up 69 yards to Landry's 40. He averaged just 3.5 yards per pass attempt, a signal of the low expectations that were placed on him coming out of retirement. Miami holds a 19-17 edge in the overall rivalry. While their offense struggled the majority of the contest, they were able to get on the scoreboard early due in large part to their defense. Cameron Wake had four hits on Cassel and shared a sack with Branch that came within a foot or two of being a safety.

The Titans are 2-2 entering Sunday's game at Miami.

To me, this game all boils down to if Marcus Mariota suits up for Tennessee.

The Titans' Matt Cassel looked hesitant, weak-armed and unable to intimidate a Dolphins defense that appeared to salivate every time he dropped back to pass. Will they stick to the run or try to exploit the secondary?

Back in September, the Titans' tight end Delanie Walker defended his team's recent protest of the national anthem - and, as Walker explained in an Instagram post, he and his family have since received death threats.

But what transpired after that was a complete collapse, resulting in three more turnovers from backup quarterback Matt Cassel as the Titans were outscored 27-0 in the second half on their way to being completely blown out. "I know T.J. Yates had some experience with it in Atlanta and with us for a couple of weeks".

But Gase said "Jay's way down on the list" of the offense problems, adding the offense would be better "if guys would do their job, catch the ball, block the right guys, give the quarterback a chance to do something". "That was really impressive to see, how they just came out and decided they were going to dominate the game and they did".
