Tennessee Titans vs. Miami Dolphins Recap
October 18, 2015
For the Miami Dolphins, it seems change is a very good thing. The Dolphins had labored through a terrible 1-3 start to the 2015 NFL season, a huge disappointment as one of the teams skilled enough to challenge for a playoff berth. The Miami front office cut ties with their old coach after 4 weeks, hiring former NFL tight end Dan Campbell to run their team. The change paid off.
Campbell, long known from a list of hard line disciplinarian type coaching regimes seemed to immediately install his will on the Dolphins players, as the rolled into Tennessee on this Sunday afternoon and playing nearly flawless football for the first time all season, dominated the Tennessee Titans on both sides of the ball.
The biggest thing that stood out in this Miami victory was a return to the old-school hard-nosed type of football. Running back Lamar Miller rushed 19 times for over 100 yards including a TD run. Even wide receiver Jarvis Landry ran the ball a pair of times, one of those a 22 yard TD scamper.
The Dolphins looked like the team they were supposed to have been all season long, but taking control of the Titans early, and then burying them with a pair of 4th quarter touchdowns to set the 4 TD margin of victory.
