National Football League 2017 Week 5: Tennessee Titans vs. Miami Dolphins preview and prediction

The Titans (2-2) were relieved Mariota's injury wasn't more severe, but they did signed journeyman quarterback Branden Weeden Tuesday.

All hope for the Titans, however, is not lost. Cassel led a 48-28 victory, going 30 of 43 for 415 yards, three touchdowns and one interception.

The Titans could be without starting quarterback Marcus Mariota. Okay, he's 1-0. But that still counts.

It was the fact that Marcus Mariota left the game at halftime with a strained hamstring, and seeing how the already-reeling Titans fared without him.

"We want to make sure that we show them we're there to play early and don't give them any type of air to breathe", Titans linebacker Avery Williamson says. Without a passing game or running game, the Dolphins have been dominated in time of possession and in final scores overall.

For the Bills, quarterback Tyrod Taylor has completed 65 of 99 attempts for 744 yards and 5 touchdowns so far this season. He was also intercepted by Quintin Demps on an unlucky tipped ball.

If you look up journeyman in the dictionary, you will likely find Cassel's picture.

The Titans signed Cassel to a two-year extension in March after having him back up Mariota last season. "To that point, I'm going to do my best to get healthy, and hopefully, I'll be ready to go".

Weeden did have a reasonable understanding of the Titans' offense, though. So if he can't start, he won't play and that will mean Weeden could be thrust into action. The offense has, multiple times, used pass plays with an empty backfield from under center.

Weeden commented on Kaepernick's future in the National Football League, saying to Jason Wolf of The Tennessean: "He's had a heck of a career".

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) - Jay Cutler finally silenced the boobirds with a fourth-quarter touchdown pass, and the Miami Dolphins overcame another dismal offensive showing Sunday to beat the Tennessee Titans 16-10. In the backfield, DeMarco Murray has 215 rushing yards while Derrick Henry has 178. Loud chants of "We Want Moore" have gone up during two straight possessions (the backup is Matt Moore.) Cutler disgustedly threw a screen pass down in the ground at the end of one possession, and then followed it up with an very bad interception right after the chanting in another.
