But with Mariota at less than full strength, or even with Matt Cassel starting under center, the Titans can be expected to win this game as much as the Dolphins can be expected to lose it. The well-traveled Dolphins have ventured to Los Angeles, New Jersey and London for their first three contests - with Jay Ajayi's rushing game being grounded with just 62 yards in the last two. But nine months later the offenses are different in terms of ability and tempo, and one key factor stands to give the defenses a hidden edge.

The Dolphins prepared for both quarterbacks last week knowing Mariota might miss the game.

He won't play Sunday after coming down with a hamstring injury in last week's loss to Houston and if Rapsheet's timetable is accurate, the Titans could be without him again in Week 6 and perhaps even longer. The Dolphins are averaging 8.3 points and 271 yards per game on offense.

Cassel, 35, has played for six National Football League franchises and is 2-4 against the Dolphins with an 86.6 passer rating.

Cutler went 12 for 26 for just 92 yards, but the Dolphins improved to 2-2 while the Titans fell to 2-3. Tankersley was picked on frequently by Drew Brees in his first career start against the New Orleans Saints, but the rookie cornerback battled back and finished with a respectable performance against the future Hall of Fame quarterback.

Spain coach Julen Lopetegui 'unhappy' after Albania win
Spain won 2-0 in Albania earlier in the campaign and are priced at 5/1 to repeat that scoreline on home soil. Goals by Rodrigo, Isco and Thiago sent Spain through with one match to spare.

It was the fact that Marcus Mariota left the game at halftime with a strained hamstring, and seeing how the already-reeling Titans fared without him.

For the Bills, quarterback Tyrod Taylor has completed 65 of 99 attempts for 744 yards and 5 touchdowns so far this season. Matt Cassel will remain on the sidelines.

Everyone who thought that free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick would be a good fit for the Titans with less than a week of practice in their offensive system had a vast misunderstanding of what the Titans do on offense. He wasn't Aaron Rodgers, but Cassel did what he needed to do for the Titans to win the game.

It's unlikely he'll ever see the field for the Titans, but if he does and he performs badly, many fans will be wondering if the team should have signed Kaepernick instead.

While the play here is on the Titans, the handicap is nearly all about the Dolphins.
