It is hard to figure out why the Tennessee Titans and Miami Dolphins are both 1-3 for the season through four weeks. Their young quarterbacks are playing well in Marcus Mariota and Ryan Tannehill. As the two teams match up in Miami on Sunday afternoon, someone is going to feel much better about themselves while the other team will be staring at 1-4 already and next season before the second week of October has arrived. Here is a look at the matchup.
The Titans lost 27-20 to the Houston Texans on the road last week and want to get home as soon as possible for a long home stand beginning next week. Mariota has passed for 925 yards, four touchdowns and five interceptions for the season and while he needs to get better, he has had the support of DeMarco Murray on offense all season long. Murray has 340 rushing yards and three touchdowns while adding 19 catches for 156 yards and two more scores. This is a chance for the defense to make some things happen this week against an inconsistent Tannehill. Turnovers may come in bunches.
The Dolphins fell 22-7 to the Cincinnati Bengals and will play their next four games at home and also have a bye week thrown in there. Tannehill has thrown for 1,081 yards, six touchdowns and five interceptions so far through four weeks. Jarvis Landry has 31 catches for 375 yards and a touchdown as the favorite target by far for Tannehill. Jay Ajayi is left to lead the run game with Arian Foster injured and he has just 75 yards on the ground and a touchdown so far. The run game must be better to help Tannehill out. This Miami defense must turn Mariota over early and often for the Dolphins to win.
