Dolphins outlast Titans, weather for 27-20 win

Two lightning delays could not keep the Miami Dolphins from their first win of the season.

Tennessee lost starting left tackle Taylor Lewan to a concussion, quarterback Marcus Mariota was in and out of action due to an elbow injury that clearly hampered him on two third-quarter interceptions, and tight end Delanie Walker suffered an ankle injury that looked like the worst of the three.

And when the game finally returned from the second lengthy weather delay, Fox wasn't quite ready to return in full form.

Six Dolphins players and coach Adam Gase mentioned the word "trust" when describing the impact Tannehill's return has on the team.

They've had plenty of practice dealing with unusual challenges.

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills runs in a touchdown in the fourth quarter against the Tennessee Titans.

The biggest issue with Sunday's delays, Gase said, was not knowing how long they would last.

"It was great to be back out here", Tannehill said.


The Titans' final score was a 53-yard field goal from Succop with 16 seconds remaining.

"We'll be flexible enough to use any personnel that we think will help us win. Glad to be a part of some history and get the year started with a win". He was intercepted twice - both after taking a hit from Dolphins defensive lineman William Hayes following a handoff.

Tannehill completed 20 of 28 for 230 yards with two touchdowns to receiver Kenny Stills and two interceptions during the Titans win, his first start since December 2016.

"The fight drives me nuts", Gase said.

"I thought those guys were good. We'll address it, we'll handle it and we'll make changes if we have to".

Tannehill completed 20 of 28 passes for 230 yards with two interceptions and two touchdowns. It was his first game since a knee injury sidelined him 21 months ago. Tannehill admitted he "left a lot of plays out there". "Whenever my number gets called, I'm going to try to do my best".

Osweiler did not play a snap during the game, but Gase felt he was the right option against the Titans.

"We'll address it, we'll handle it, and we'll make changes we need to", Gase said. "That one isn't an easy decision each week".
