Including this week there are officially two months until the end of the regular season in the NFL. Hard to believe it is more than half way over. In week ten, the Tennessee Titans and Miami Dolphins will be squaring off in what is desperately a ‘must win’ for Tennessee.
The Dolphins have surprised a lot of people this year. Ryan Tannehill has been able to move the ball better for the team with a total of 142 completions in 241 attempts for 1762 yards. His main target of course is Brian Hartline. Who has an average 16 yard gain on each carry; he has 662 yards receiving on the year.
Everyone knows that the Titans numbers aren’t where they had expected them to be. Over the offseason they were worried about defense, but yet went out and grabbed first round draft pick Kendall Wright who is currently injured but has 381 yards receiving. There is a good chance that he could get in the game this week though having full practice on Wednesday.
The Titans have the second toughest schedule next to the Dallas Cowboys. When you think about it, their record should get better these next few weeks with “easier” opponents.
As far as match up statistics go, it’s going to be pretty deadlocked. It is a matter of which team decides to show up. Aside from Wright, there is a solid chance, pending any setbacks, that starting quarterback Jake Locker could be in the pocket for the Titans.
The Dolphins currently sit 4-4 while the Titans are desperately looking for a win with a 3-6 record. Considering both teams have not been able to put a lot of points on the board this season, you can expect a low scoring game. My Prediction is Titans 20, Dolphins 17. It will be yet another game where Rob Bironas will be the difference.
