Dolphins Look to Halt Free Fall Against Reeling Titans


The Miami Dolphins will be searching for ways to kick-start a toothless offense that has averaged just 8.3 points per game this season when they return home on Sunday to take on the Tennessee Titans in an NFL Week 5 matchup at Hard Rock Stadium. The Titans travel south following their most lopsided defeat in five years, a 57-14 loss in Houston as 2.5-point favorites.

Shark Bites
  • The Titans are 3-1 ATS in their last four games on the road against the Dolphins.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 10 of the Titans’ last 12 games on the road against the Dolphins.
  • The Dolphins are 5-1 SU in their last six games at home.

It is quickly becoming a lost season for the Dolphins following last week’s 20-0 loss to New Orleans as 3.5-point home underdogs. Jay Cutler has been a massive disappointment since taking over under center in Miami. Cutler has tossed one touchdown in the past two weeks, a meaningless score with time expiring in the Dolphins’ 20-6 loss to the New York Jets as 5.5-point road chalk.

Miami’s ground game has been equally feeble, averaging just 66.3 yards per game while Dolphins rushers have yet to score this season. However, Miami has a chance to resurrect its offense against a Titans squad that ranks 30th in team defense, and could also be without star quarterback Marcus Mariota, who remains questionable after suffering a hamstring injury in last week’s loss to the Texans.

The road team has prevailed in the past three meetings between these squads, with the home team averaging just 10 ppg. That includes the Titans’ 30-17 win in Miami as 2.5-point underdogs last year that lifted them to 3-3 SU in their past six visits to South Florida.
