How The Unstoppable Dolphins Were Taken Down By The Titans

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – There are no moral victories in a closely played game against a team that is significantly more talented. 

The Titans didn’t need one after coming from behind to win a game versus what was supposed to be an unstoppable Dolphins offense.  

In a game that was easy to predict the outcome, the Titans' defense decided that wasn’t going to be the case.

The Titans' defense, especially the red-zone defense was dominant, allowing yards and chunk plays, but making the necessary stops. 

The Titans’ offense came to life in the second half. A combination of big first down throws to DeAndre Hopkins, and the check down throws to Chig Okonkwo and Tyjae Spears by Will Levis showed not only his maturation but his ability in critical situations to be decisive.
