Weather Delays Make Titans-Dolphins Longest Game Ever

Titans will be without a few key players vs. Dolphins on Sunday

Quarterback Marcus Mariota is being evaluated after hurting his throwing arm, and two-time Pro Bowl left tackle Taylor Lewan is in the concussion protocol.

Sunday's game between the Tennessee Titans and Miami Dolphins set the record for the longest game in National Football League history at seven hours and eight minutes. Mariota threw a strike as he's known to do on play action throws.

Gabbert didn't do that, going 11 for 22 for 117 yards and an interception that sealed the win for Miami.

And when the game finally returned from the second lengthy weather delay, Fox wasn't quite ready to return in full form.

In 2017, Hurricane Irma postponed their Week 1 contest, forcing them to play 16 consecutive games without a bye week.

Grant's touchdown triggered a late flurry of big plays in a season opener that was lackluster for the first six hours.

The Titans had crossed midfield when Jones intercepted a Gabbert pass, and Jason Sanders' 30-yard field goal iced the game with 3:49 to go.

"We'll see how it goes moving forward", Gase said. NFL Network reports that he suffered a dislocated ankle and associated fracture, likely ending his season.

Left tackle Laremy Tunsil said the huddle feels different this year with Tannehill in it. "Our thoughts and prayers are with him".

Miami outlasted Tennessee - and more than four hours in lightning delays - to earn the 27-20 victory in a bout that lasted seven hours and 10 minutes.

Around 10,000 spectators remained at the finish of the Miami Dolphins' marathon win over Tennessee, and they were hardly fair weather fans. "Those guys got after the quarterback, and I was just back there doing my job to make the play".

"We'll be flexible enough to use any personnel that we think will help us win".

Combined, the trio has 56 career receptions and will be replacing a veteran who led the Titans with 74 catches last season alone. "I was going, 'Please run by me'".

Ryan Tannehill returned to the field for the first time since 2016 and threw for two touchdown passes to Kenny Stills.

"I reflected a little bit on the grind that it was to get back here", Tannehill said.

Lewan was flattened on Andre Branch's blindside block during an interception return by Jones. Lewan sprawled face down on the turf, then suddenly sprang to his feet, and players exchanged words and shoves. They will keep the opposing defense on their toes as they stay fresh, rotating in and out of the game. No Titans appeared to protest.
