Titans vs. Dolphins 2012 score update: Tennessee jumps to 14-0 lead

The Tennessee Titans capitalized on an early Miami Dolphins turnover, and Tennessee led 14-0 through one quarter Sunday.

The Titans got on the board first after a turnover set them up in prime field position. Dolphins running back Reggie Bush broke a 15-yard run on a 3rd-and-13 play from the Miami 12-yard line, but after he crossed the first-down marker he fumbled. Cornerback Jason McCourty recovered the fumble for the Titans, setting up quarterback Jake Locker at the Dolphins 28-yard line.

Running back Chris Johnson gashed the Dolphins for 21 yards on first down, and Locker found Kendall Wright down the middle for a nine-yard touchdown three plays later.

Johnson added to the score with a 17-yard touchdown run with 1:23 left in the first. The rush capped a seven-play, 65-yard drive in which Tennessee ran the ball on five plays: three hand-offs to Johnson, and two Locker scrambles.

The first scramble was a 20-yard pick-up on the first play of the drive, and the second was a critical five-yard run on 4th and 2 from the Miami 37-yard line.

The Dolphins gained a total of 55 yards in the first quarter.
