  • Dolphins vs. Titans preview 5 questions with Titans Wire

Saturday night it was reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter that Mariota is "not expected" to play in the game.

Cutler had a awful first half in the Dolphins' home game against the Titans, completing 5-of-11 passes for just 21 yards and an interception.

On the heels of the Tennessee Titans signing quarterback Brandon Weeden, head coach Mike Mularkey commented Wednesday on whether the team had interest in Colin Kaepernick. Mariota could be good to go as early as Week 6 if he's ultimately ruled inactive later today. Mariota has as many touchdowns running (three) as he has passing (three).

Jay Ajayi is clearly the Dolphins' bell cow, but if the team would like to keep him relatively healthy this season, it's imperative that the likes of Kenyan Drake and Damien Williams get involved.

Jay Cutler, who was brought in to replace injured quarterback Ryan Tannehill, continues to irk most of his team's fanbase with poor performance and lackadaisical body language at times.

The Titans were in the market for a quarterback behind veteran backup Matt Cassel since Marcus Mariota suffered a hamstring injury and is uncertain for Week 5.

The Tennessee Titans and the Miami Dolphins square off in week 5 National Football League action from Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, FL. The Dolphins held Tennessee to just 188 total yards and an ugly 2-for-13 on third down.

It was the fact that Marcus Mariota left the game at halftime with a strained hamstring, and seeing how the already-reeling Titans fared without him.

So far this season, Mariota has completed 60 percent of his passes for 792 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions. They're now ranked No. 28 in time of possession, and they must hold the ball longer or score more points if they hope to complement their defense that has played well enough to win. In 2015, the Dolphins beat Tennessee 38-10 in Nashville. "To that point, I'm going to do my best to get healthy, and hopefully, I'll be ready to go". It was against the New York Jets and the New Orleans Saints. Weeden also knows Titans backup quarterback Matt Cassel from Dallas.

While the play here is on the Titans, the handicap is nearly all about the Dolphins.
