"I'm going to do whatever the coaches want". "I'd rather our guys celebrate with the guy who just intercepted the ball, instead of doing what happened there". "I tried to stay in the present as much as I could". Lewan was removed from the game following the play.

About four minutes later, Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill connected with Kenny Stills on a deep pass for a 75-yard touchdown to extend Miami's lead to 24-10.

Unfortunately, it was also a game marred by significant injuries.

Gabbert completed 11-of-22 passes for 117 yards and an INT, pulling the Titans within a touchdown before the ensuing onsides kick was recovered by Miami in the waning seconds. Let's just chalk that up to getting back into the game for the first time since the 2016 season and sitting for four hours in the middle of the game, waiting for the weather to clear.

The rest of the Titans' tight end group includes Jonnu Smith, a third-round pick out of Florida International in 2017, eight-year veteran Luke Stocker who has started 58 of his 84 career games, and Anthony Firkser who spent last season on Kansas City's practice squad.

The Titans struggles in the loss to Miami is hard to take. "I don't think we can commit to anything right now".

The Dolphins had stellar contributions from Jones (two interceptions), Stills (two touchdown catches) and Frank Gore (61 yards in nine carries). Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders did so by making a 27-yard field goal with 4:05 remaining in the third quarter. You talked before the season that was something you hadn't accomplished yet that you wanted to do. The front seven played well.

- Adam Gase wasn't about to call the game against Tennessee a ideal outing for the offense because there indeed were things to clean up, including pre-snap penalties, but the Dolphins still were able to accomplish a lot of good things. It looks like it could be a bright future for this team, this year and beyond.
