The game takes place from Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and has a scheduled start time of 1 p.m. ET. Miami holds a 19-17 edge in the overall rivalry.
The Miami Marlins will look to bounce back after being shut out by the New Orleans Saints in week 4 by a final score of 20-0 to fall to 1-2 this season. According to ESPN.com, that decision is made by the team's front office, and they chose to bring in four quarterbacks who aren't Kaepernick.
The Tennessee Titans will start veteran backup Matt Cassel against Miami in the Dolphins' home opener on today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported. My guess is he'll play and as long as he doesn't tweak anything.
Here are three reasons that the Titans can still manage a victory with Matt Cassel.
Cutler watched video of the Titans surrendering four touchdown passes by Texans rookie Deshaun Watson, but knows that's no guarantee Miami will be move the ball. Their run defense has been good, allowing just 77.7 yards per game on the ground. Ajayi has battled a knee injury this season and has only 62 rushing yards combined over the past two weeks. Edges do remain in play thanks to totals and teasers, but first there is one point spread worth exploring with a handicap similar to a Week 4 victor. And they weren't facing the 1985 Chicago Bears defense in these games.
A bad sequence for the Titans changed the game early. A win against the Dolphins would help fix it. So you can say they were Samaritans. Despite throwing an interception, and losing a fumble, as well as getting hit all night, he managed to complete 30 of 40 passes for 303 yards and a touchdown.
Maxwell was listed as questionable on the Dolphins injury report.
With both offenses operating at a lower level than they did in the unforgettable playoff matchup, the value in this one seems to be on the under, especially considering each defense is well equipped to sniff out what's coming its way. He proved that during his on-field workout and in meetings with the coaches.
