Dolphins vs. Titans: Five Things To Watch

While Mariota certainly is very fast and the offense occasionally caters to his athleticism with a designed run or option play, it is not their offense.

The Dolphins finally played their first home game at Hard Rock Stadium on Sunday, defeating the Tennessee Titans 16-10. Mariota could be good to go as early as Week 6 if he's ultimately ruled inactive later today. Ajayi has battled a knee injury this season and has only 62 rushing yards combined over the past two weeks. But nine months later the offenses are different in terms of ability and tempo, and one key factor stands to give the defenses a hidden edge. They tried the wildcat in the second quarter, and even that flopped - tight end MarQueis Gray took the snap, faked a handoff and threw incomplete.

The Titans played without quarterback Marcus Mariota, who was inactive because of a left hamstring injury suffered a week ago. Looking ahead, Mariota is no lock to return in time for the Titans' Week 6 contest on October 16 against the Colts, with Ian Rapoport of having suggested that the recovery time for the hamstring injury Mariota suffered back on October 1 "estimated to be 2-4 weeks".

Last week, the Miami Dolphins traveled all the way to London and were faced with the unenviable task of trying to slow down Drew Brees and the potent New Orleans Saints offense.

Look for the Titans to bring their "A" game to brush off last week's no-show in Houston, and in the process to brush aside the beleaguered Dolphins.

Matt Cassel in action in Miami.

Everyone who thought that free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick would be a good fit for the Titans with less than a week of practice in their offensive system had a vast misunderstanding of what the Titans do on offense. Matt Cassel is looking like the Titans' Week 5 starter, but check back to verification later in the morning.

And given that Mariota's running is an integral part of his game, the Titans must monitor that part of things, as well.

It's been less than four full games of Jay Cutler and Dolphins fans have already seen enough.
