Tennessee Titans vs. Miami Dolphins – Week 5 Picks And Predictions

Another matchup of two not so really great teams. Both of these have struggled to start the season, but one of them will win this game, and they’ll have a 2nd chance at getting into that Playoff picture. For the losing squad, it means that their postseason dreams will remain just that.

Dolphins are coming off a mini bye week as they were pitted against the Bengals on Thursday Night Football. Besides that 2nd play and that Stills’ Touchdown, they were just anemic all night long. Cincy is no joke, especially in that jungle of theirs, but still, this performance was nowhere near good. Tannehill needs to step up that is for sure.

Miami has had two moral victories in the firs two weeks, but that won’t get them to the Playoffs. A win is much needed here, on their home field, against a team that is probably not as good as they are.

And that pretty much says it all when it comes to these Tennessee Titans. DeMarco Murray has found a new life as a member of the Titans, and he is their best player on the offensive side of the ball. Miami hasn’t been that good against the run and Murray should be given a huge workload.

But we don’t think Murray’s performance will win this game for the Titans. They have the 4th best rushing attacks, but we don’t trust Mariota to come to South Beach and win this game. Miami’s defense has underperformed a bit, but they should be able to stop the Titans. Dolphins will win this game 24:17.
