Dolphins beat Titans despite lackluster offensive performance

But Mariota just ran for two TDs for the first time in his career, the franchise's first quarterback with two TDs rushing since Steve McNair against New England on October 5, 2003.

Jay Ajayi showd up on the injury report again this week, but will play.

But after a video review, the touchdown was upheld and Jones - who also had a sack that almost went for a safety and another fumble recovery that led to three points - had his game-changing play.

A still smarting LeBeau promised Thursday the Titans will be much better than that starting Sunday in Miami. Jay Cutler had 92 yards, one touchdown and threw an interception trying to extend a play. Edges do remain in play thanks to totals and teasers, but first there is one point spread worth exploring with a handicap similar to a Week 4 victor. "It's just not acceptable".

The Dolphins missed the extra point. But next Sunday, the Dolphins visit Super Bowl runners-up Atlanta as they step up in class. The Dolphins helped them fix that and build some confidence. 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. Matt Cassel will step in if Mariota can't go.

Miami had lost two straight games heading into Sunday.

"I just kept playing", Jones said. "Like, 'Hey, coach, look up on the board and see what they rushed for.' I think it was 30-something yards".

The Dolphins won despite totaling just 178 yards. Reshad Jones scooped up the loose ball and went 38 yards for the score. Cassel will need to handle the ball more carefully.

Andre Branch had two sacks. Andre Branch lead the way with two sacks and rookie Charles Harris earned his first career sack. The Dolphins' offense managed to gain 13 more yards placing Cody Parkey in position to connect on a 41-yard field goal to give them a 3-0 lead. Ben Roethlisberger's performance has been a red flag and may keep the Pittsburgh offense in check, but with T.J. Watt and Joe Haden on board the Steelers' defense is vastly improved, and whatever struggles Big Ben has, it's still Blake Bortles on the other side against the home defense.

The Titans signed Cassel to a two-year extension in March after having him back up Mariota last season. In general, the entire team will have to play more carefully, avoiding mistakes, if they want to win without their usual quarterback.

"I thought they were talking about yards", Pouncey said. This game had fans booing and calling for backup QB Matt Moore and game reporters asking coach Gase about that at halftime. That's just how it is. Chad Henne, who had started the first eight games of the season, came in to replace Pennington but also left because of an injury. "He stays composed no matter what".
