Dolphins at Titans predictions of final score for Week 6 contest

New, comments

We take a shot at predicting Sunday's final score between the Miami Dolphins and the Tennessee Titans, and give you a chance to make your prediction as well.

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins come out of their bye week with a showdown against the Tennessee Titans on the schedule. Watching Miami has been brutal this year, rooting for a team that has been slow out of the gate each week, a team that shows little fight once they get behind, and a team that clearly had taken on the personality of their head coach, Joe Philbin. While Philbin seemed to be a good man and no one ever complained about him personally, he was clearly not getting the best out of the Dolphins and he was fired four games into the season.

Now, the Dolphins will, for the first time, play a game under interim head coach Dan Campbell. A much more fiery, aggressive coach than Philbin, will the Dolphins come out with that same personality? Is two weeks of work enough time to adjust a team that has been so completely flat through each of their first four games?

We asked several of the Phinsider contributors to provide us with a prediction of the game, which you will find below. You will also have your chance to make a prediction using the widget at the end of the story. Make sure you put in an entry. SB Nation is tracking how well each team's blog predicts their scores throughout the season, with all of the managing editors hoping to gain bragging rights.

Here are the predictions:

James McKinney
Dolphins 27 - Titans 17

Miami finally finds the fire they have been missing, under new head coach Dan Campbell, and come out fired up. With things changed up (hoping) the Titans job of stopping Miami will also be complicated by things they have not previously seen on tape (hoping some more).

New coach, new team. Is Dan Campbell going to give the Dolphins a spark? We shall wait and see. Coming off a bye helps.

Alex Parish
Dolphins 17 - Titans 10

In Joe Philbin's final game, the Dolphins lacked aggressiveness and just couldn't find any rhythm. That could change this Sunday. Dan Campbell has professed to make this team tougher. He's a players coach who will get this team fired up. The Dolphins will just edge this one, but don't expect many points.

I feel like the offense is going to come alive on Sunday, but the defense is just not good.


Chris Early
Dolphins 24 - Titans 20

Miami finally finds the fire they have been missing, under new head coach Dan Campbell, and come out fired up. With things changed up (hoping) the Titans job of stopping Miami will also be complicated by things they have not previously seen on tape (hoping some more).


Kevin Nogle
Dolphins 17 - Titans 14

The Dolphins offense has not been a high-powered, shoot-out type of offense yet this year, and I do not see interim head coach Dan Campbell changing that in just two weeks. I do, however, think the Miami defense getting back to an aggressive, blow-up-the-pocket style is more likely. I think this is low scoring (or maybe I hope this is low scoring), and I will give Miami a shot to prove they are ready to turn around this season.
