  • Titans will be without a few key players vs. Dolphins on Sunday

Tannehill threw two interceptions, one of which slipped out of his hand on a goal-line pass to Mike Gesicki, to go with his 230 yards and two touchdowns. 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.

Alright, after a deep breath and going back over the game it is time to break down what happened with all 53 players on the roster. Walker was carted off after having his right ankle wrapped in an air cast.

The Dolphins take on the Jets next weekend on the road.

A win is a win, no matter how long it takes to achieve. There's a lot of trust between us and Ryan.

Dion Lewis' first rushing touchdown with his new team knotted the score. After a brief halftime, lightning struck nearby once again.

Add to that the Titans are recovering from the league's longest game since the NFL/AFL merger in 1970 because of two lightning delays that made the matchup in Miami last 7 hours, 8 minutes from the opening kickoff to the final second ticked off. It's clear Tannehill's return has brought an increased level of trust and a calming presence to a Miami team that was subjected to a lot of chaos in 2017, when Jay Cutler was brought in after Tannehill had ACL surgery.

Stills iced the Dolphins' win when he torched Titans cornerback Malcolm Butler for a 75-yard touchdown from Tannehill with 10:22 remaining, giving Miami a 24-10 advantage.

Tannehill hit Kenny Stills on a 75-yard TD early in the fourth quarter to give the Dolphins a two-TD lead and keep them in front for the remainder of the game.

Miami answered with a 30-yard Jason Sanders field goal to increase its lead to 27-17. After Walker caught the ball, Dolphins safety T.J. McDonald came up to make the tackle and Walker's ankle got caught underneath him.

Lightning forced a pair of delays in Sunday's freaky Dolphins-Titans game that turned out to be the longest game in National Football League history.
