Marcus Mariota injures elbow in Titans' loss to Miami Dolphins

Two lightning delays could not keep the Miami Dolphins from their first win of the season. "I was going, 'Please run by me'".

"I thought those guys were good. Whenever my number gets called, I'm going to try to do my best". By the time it was over more than seven hours later, the late afternoon games were all in the books.

Unfortunately, it was also a game marred by significant injuries. 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. "Just coming in the first time, it was kind of up and down night, so it was like 'alright, 30 minutes, ' and it was like 'alright, another 30 minutes, ' so you're kind of constantly getting ready to go, getting ready to go, sitting back down".

Tannehill hit Stills for a 75-yard touchdown to give Miami a 24-10 lead. "The line protected and Ryan (Tannehill) threw a great ball down the field and I made a play on the field".

- Adam Gase got production from the four wide receivers who saw action on offense - Kenny Stills, Jakeem Grant, Danny Amendola and Albert Wilson. The run defense exhibited hope that they are moving in the right direction, limiting the big plays to a minimum, allowing only one play of twenty yards or more.

In Arizona, the Redskins used a 21-point second quarter to seize control of a game that they would end up winning, 24-6. Rodgers threw three touchdown passes, including a 75-yarder to Randall Cobb with 2:13 left in the game.

Fales, a backup for the Dolphins last season, and Luke Falk, a rookie who the Dolphins invited for pre-draft workouts earlier this year, were inactive for Sunday's game. Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders did so by making a 27-yard field goal with 4:05 remaining in the third quarter.

It was very exciting.

"I won't be surprised by anything", he said.

"If that's legal, then we have to do it the same exact way", Vrabel said.

- Adam Gase wasn't about to call the game against Tennessee a flawless 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.
