This Sunday the Miami Dolphins will be hoisting the Tennessee Titans at 1pm. The Titans are coming off one of their most embarrassing defeats in the franchise’s history, and will need to figure it out fast, because the Dolphins are coming off a tough road defeat and are hungry to get back on track.
The key for the Phins is establishing their running game. Over the last 5 games the Dolphins have only managed to average 74.2 yards on the ground. If the Dolphins have any plans of using a running game this season, the Titans pose the perfect team to sharpen their running skills before facing stout rush defenses like the 49ers and Patriots. The Titans are ranked 30th in the league allowing 141.6 yards per game on the ground, and last in the league allowing 34.2 points per game. There is no reason why the Dolphins offense can’t rack up the yardage, and points on the Titans porous defense.
Miami has won the last 3 games these teams have played, and have won 6 of the last 7 meetings. If the Phins can win the turn over battle, and finally get their running game back on track, then this will end in a dominating performance. However, if the Phins can not do these two things then this is going to be a long day ending in sorrow. I have faith in our team, and I believe that not only will the Dolphins win, but they will also cover the -5 1/2 point spread. Rarely do football gambling fans see the Phins favored by almost a touchdown, so most football gambling fans are picking the Titans for this game. However, I guess because I am biased I choose to go with the aqua and orange.
