Dolphins lineup changes: Maualuga and Godchaux starting vs. Titans

NFL Power Rankings – Week 5: Several teams making a jump Former Oklahoma State QB Brandon Weeden signs with Titans

Mariota (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Loud chants of "We Want Moore" have gone up during two straight possessions (the backup is Matt Moore.) Cutler disgustedly threw a screen pass down in the ground at the end of one possession, and then followed it up with an very bad interception right after the chanting in another.

Mularkey says he would be comfortable playing the quarterback Sunday even without a full practice.

During the Tennessee Titans Week 4 loss against the Houston Texans, the team's starting quarterback Marcus Mariota picked up a hamstring injury that has placed him in serious doubt for their Week 5 game against the Miami Dolphins.

These two teams have had opposite fortunes through the opening month of the season, with the Buffalo Bills pushing on with a 3-1 record to top the AFC East.

It wasn't the prettiest of games but the Miami Dolphins will certainly take it. This game against Tennessee could be a winnable one, especially if Mariota is unable to suit up. Matt Cassel will remain on the sidelines.

Matt Cassel, who completed just four of his 10 pass attempts and was intercepted twice in last week's loss to the Houston Texans, earned the starting nod should the OR product be unable to go.

Miami went into the half up 10-3. Cassel completed 16 of his 26 pass attempts for 150 yards and one touchdown.

Not to mention the Titans made a decision to go with Mariota after bringing in an all-star lineup off National Football League junk parts in Matt Barkley, Matt McGloin and T.J. Yates.

So, Weeden is yet another employed quarterback who Kaepernick is flat out better than. After their impressive start to the season, they will want to ensure they keep their noses in front of their fierce division rivals, so a win today is a must for them.

The Dolphins will try to forget their London experience, as they seemingly never got off the plane, suffering a 20-0 shutout loss to New Orleans.

And given that Mariota's running is an integral part of his game, the Titans must monitor that part of things, as well.

Dolphins fans spent most of the team's home opener booing Jay Cutler and the Dolphins lackluster offense. All the Dolphins need to do for a big play to happen is to improve their anemic offensive line.
