Miami was 1-3 after losing to the New York Jets in London, so they fired Joe Philbin and replaced him with tight-ends coach Dan Campbell. His first test comes on Sunday on the road in Tennessee.
Opening Odds & Line Movement
Open: -2.5 -105 at Pinnacle
The Titans opened up the NFL odds as 2.5-point favorites at home before moving to -3, then back -2.5 and it is now at -2 for Tennessee. It'll be interesting to see how the Dolphins respond to Campbell, who is known to be a bit tougher than Philbin was and he wants the team to be more aggressive on both sides of the ball. The Titans look like a young team that doesn't know how to win (they were the ninth-youngest team in the league coming into the season), but you can't blame Marcus Mariota for that. The rookie QB is tenth in the NFL in QBR and he might be better already than Miami counterpart Ryan Tannehill, who is 31st in QBR.
For the Dolphins, T Brandon Albert (hamstring), CB Brent Grimes (knee) and DE Cameron Wake (hamstring) were limited in practice on Wednesday. All three are important pieces for the Dolphins, who need all hands on deck and quickly to get this season back on track, so watch them leading up to kickoff in what is shaping up to be a massive game for the Dolphins.
G Chance Warmack has a chance (pun intended) to play this week after a knee injury, and other than that, the Titans are quite healthy going into this Game 6 contest. At 1-3, they can't afford another loss in the AFC South (which to be fair, they probably weren't going to win anyway).
Both teams have struggled ATS as of late with Miami going 1-8 ATS in their last nine, while Tennessee is 2-8 ATS in their last 10. The Titans are 2-13-1 in their last 16 at home, while the Dolphins are 2-4 ATS in their last six on the road.
The Titans are 4-6 SU and 5-5 ATS in their last 10 games against the Dolphins, who are 2-1 SU and 1-2 ATS in three home games against Miami.
