ANALYSIS

Tennessee Titans vs. Miami Dolphins Prediction: Will the Dolphins Extend Winning Streak to 8?

The Miami Dolphins are on a long seven-game winning streak after starting the season 1-7. Quarterback Tua Tagovalioa was injured and out for a couple of those games, but the Dolphins weren’t playing well in the first half of the season. Fast forward to the second half of the season, and the Dolphins are now 8-7 on the year and still have a chance to finish the season with ten wins. They’ll take on the Tennessee Titans on the road, and the Titans will be the most challenging task yet for the Dolphins throughout that long winning streak. Will the Dolphins find a way to finish the regular season with a winning record? Here are our picks and predictions for the AFC game between the Miami Dolphins and the Tennessee Titans.

Tennessee Titans vs. Miami Dolphins Prediction 

It’s been a fun ride for the Miami Dolphins. Miami has won seven straight games and is now 8-7 on the season. They went through many bumps along the way but faced adversity and are now in a position to finish the regular season with a winning record.

Every team gets a chance at playing some awful teams. The Dolphins just got to play them for seven straight weeks. Wins against the Jets, Giants, Panthers, and Saints aren’t going to impress anyone. However, this is the National Football League, and we’ve seen many teams lose games that should’ve never been close. It is impressive for the Dolphins to win seven straight games in this league, regardless of who they played.

Tua Tagovalioa has led the Dolphins with just 15 touchdowns and nine interceptions on the year. The Dolphins, despite having a winning record, have allowed more points than scored this year and are averaging fewer points than allowed this season as well. It’s only a matter of time before the Dolphins finally lose a game.

Against the Titans, there’s a chance the streak concludes. The Titans are 10-5 on the year and have been quietly excellent this year while going through a bunch of bumps in the road as well. The Titans have had to play without running back Derrick Henry and play many games without A.J. Brown and Julio Jones this year. With Brown back, the Titans looked poised to be a legitimate contender in the AFC. Julio Jones will be back soon and

Henry could return in the playoffs if the Titans win a couple of games first. The Titans average 361.3 points per game while giving up 351.9 yards per game. However, the Titans have limited opponents to 86.7 yards per game on the ground this season. The Dolphins have also really struggled in the ground game, which could force Miami into second and long and third and long spots in this game. So give me the Titans, at home at -3.5.
