Dolphins outlast Titans, weather for 27-20 win


Head coach Mike Vrabel of the Tennessee Titans watches Ryan Succop #4 attempt a field goal in the third quarter against the Miami Dolphins at Hard Rock Stadium on September 9, 2018 in Miami, Florida. He was the Pro Bowl MVP in January and has been quarterback Marcus Mariota's favourite target the past three seasons. He was replaced by Blaine Gabbert.

The game was 10-3 at the time of the second lightning delay.

The Dolphins put a message on the video board in the fourth quarter thanking the fans - approximately 7,000 to 10,000 - who stayed until game's end for "being a part of history". Less than four minutes later, Stills scored over the top of Tennessee's defense on a 75-yard pass from Ryan Tannehill, who made his comeback after missing the previous 20 games due to knee surgery.

Tennessee's top two draft picks also are linebackers, and Rashaan Evans and Harold Landry both missed the opener with injuries.

Tiger Woods fires best opening round in almost 20 years
McIlroy plodded to a 69 to fall four strokes behind, while Woods (70) bogeyed the final two holes to slip five back. Finau made seven birdies in his round of 64 and goes into the final 36 holes at Aronimink just five shots behind.

The Dolphins had stellar contributions from Jones (two interceptions), Stills (two touchdown catches) and Frank Gore (61 yards in nine carries). Instead of dweling on those negative aspects, let's concentrate on the positives that came out of the Dolphins' victory.

A win is a win, no matter how long it takes to achieve.

The Dolphins marched down the field with a 12-play, 98-yard drive in the second quarter to take their first lead.

Mariota's injury came on a play in which the quarterback ran an option play in which he handed the ball off to running back Derrick Henry, who was tackled for a three-yard gain.

Florence expected to become major hurricane, risk to East Coast increasing
North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper declared a state of emergency on Friday and urged residents to prepare for the storm's arrival. At this point, its exact landfall location is very hard to determine as Florence will eventually make a NW and then north turn.

Alright, after a deep breath and going back over the game it is time to break down what happened with all 53 players on the roster.

The Titans attempted to mount a comeback with a 94-yard touchdown return from Darius Jennings on the ensuing kickoff.

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.
