NFL: Tennessee Titans at Miami Dolphins Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins end their two game losing streak and managed to pull out a victory yesterday against the Tennessee Titans. The Dolphins defense played some great football and were applying constant pressure on Matt Cassel. On the other side of the ball, things weren’t that great for the offense. The unit continues to struggle but we saw signs of life in the fourth quarter as Jay Cutler was finally making some throws and recorded a touchdown to Jarvis Landry. The Dolphins will be heading to Atlanta next week to take on a tough Falcons team.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day's round-up below.
