I stated last week that the Dolphins will find themselves in trouble in the Colts game if the DB's could not control the playmakers. They almost pulled out the victory but almost does not put a W in the win/loss column.
Well the Dolphins starting corner Richard Marshall is on IR. The inconsistent play of Sean Smith at corner hurt the Dolphins last week I'm hoping he rebounds this week.
Tannehill did a great job at not turning the ball over last week. Besides that nice ankle breaking run by Bush the running game still needs to step it up. Jake Long is far from being a pro bowler this season. His play as of late has been horrendous with penalties and giving up sacks/qb pressures. This is his contract year but he sure is not playing like he wants that big contract extension.
I'm hoping the Titans will be the perfect remedy the Dolphins need. The Titans are hurting on both sides of the ball. IMO the Dolphins should be able to establish a better running game to open up the pass against the Titans defense.
Chris Johnson started off slow this season. I have him on my fantasy team and nearly dropped him until he started improving. Miami has a top rated run defense and has yet to allow a 100 yard rusher this season. Unless CJ breaks a couple for a long run I don't see the Titans being able to just pound the ground game on the Dolphins front seven to be have the first 100 yd rusher against the Dolphins this season.
