The Miami Dolphins return home to start a four-game stand at Hard Rock Stadium over a span of five weeks. This weekend, the team will host the Tennessee Titans, another battle between teams with only one win. Which team can come out on top and, potentially, save their season?
Miami has had 10 days to prepare for this game, having last played on Thursday night to start Week 4. That game exposed several flaws for the Dolphins, and the team has had these ten days to try to come up with the necessary adjustments. Did they make the changes and will this week’s outcome be any different?
Miami could see the return of center Mike Pouncey and left tackle Branden Albert this week, as well as the possible return of running back Arian Foster. The two offensive linemen should help improve the pass blocking and open up the running game.
This game also has the added question mark of Hurricane Matthew, which should be out of the area by Sunday, but is expected to do significant damage to Florida Thursday and Friday.
