The Miami Dolphins will get back to playing football after an off weekend in Week 5, heading to Nashville to face the Tennessee Titans in a Week 6 contest. The season has yet to go well for the Dolphins, who are 1-3 heading into this game, despite entering the season as a dark horse pick for the Super Bowl and a team expected to challenge for the AFC East division title this year.

How do the Dolphins match up with the Titans? To get a closer look at both teams, we go to the tale of the tape.
