  • NFL Power Rankings – Week 5: Several teams making a jump

"You treat it like DeMarco, one week had the same, very similar little bit of a strain in it, and the next we kind of watched him throughout the week of practice, then he came back and played well". Armando Salguero of Miami Herald believes identifying the problem in the team's subpar performance through the first three games of the #2017 Nfl Season is plain simple: Dolphins playmakers are just not making big plays. Weeden is also Oklahoma State's career leader in touchdown passes. NFL Network's Ian Rappaport reported that Mariota could miss even more games.

The Titans are expected to start Matt Cassel at quarterback in place of an injured Marcus Mariota for their Week 5 game Sunday at the Dolphins, ESPN reports. Tennessee may lean heavily on a running game that is averaging an NFL-best 5.0 yards per carry, with 2016 AFC rushing leader DeMarco Murray (5.1) rumbling for 121 yards in Tennessee's 30-17 victory over Miami on October 9, 2016. That brought in third quarterback Tyler Thigpen to finish out the game.

Head coach Mike Mularkey of the Tennessee Titans looks on during action against the Oakland Raiders in the first half at Nissan Stadium on September 10, 2017, In Nashville, Tenn.

The Titans coach remains hopeful that Mariota will play despite a strained hamstring.

Kaepernick threw for 12,271 yards and 72 touchdowns against 30 interceptions in five seasons as the starter in San Francisco. It's a Trump state, and I wish they'd just say that, instead of trying to convince us that Weeden is actually an National Football League quarterback, because that feels more hurtful than saying that Kaepernick is anti-American. Two young quarterbacks just looking to get better.


The Miami Marlins will look to bounce back after being shut out by the New Orleans Saints in week 4 by a final score of 20-0 to fall to 1-2 this season. Replacement Matt Cassel went 21 for 32 for 141 yards and was sacked six times.

On defense, aside from superstars Ndamukong Suh and Reshad Jones, the Dolphins heavily rely on older players who are past their primes.

Only the need isn't enough to win a game, clearly.

This week Dolphin fans should root for the ultimate underdog, Jay Cutler, against the Titans.
