The Miami Dolphins will attempt to keep their surprising season going when they host the Tennessee Titans on Sunday at 1 p.m ET. The Dolphins were expected by many to be among the worst teams in the NFL, but sit an impressive 4-4 halfway through the year. The Titans, meanwhile, have endured injuries and other struggles, and enter the game at 3-6.
Rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill will get a chance to operate against the Titans' poor defense. Tennessee ranks 27th in passing defense and 30th in total defense, and are coming off a 51-20 defeat to the Chicago Bears. Reggie Bush should also have a good opportunity to put up some strong numbers. The Dolphins are coming off a tough loss of their own, a 23-20 nailbiter to the Colts, so both teams will be looking to atone for their mistakes.
For the Titans, Jake Locker is set to make his first start since Week 4 when he suffered a shoulder injury. Matt Hasselbeck has started in his stead, and has more or less kept the ship afloat. Chris Johnson may not be putting up the eye popping numbers he did two years ago, but he's rebounded from a very poor 2011 to be in the top ten in the league in rushing yards.
The Dolphins are either six or seven point favorites, depending on where you look.
