There’s a serious resting advantage here, with the Dolphins coming off a Monday night and the Titans playing last Thursday. Short week to one and a half weeks. That said, the Titans are nowhere near as intimidating without Derrick Henry in the backfield, and Tannehill, which is a statue in his pocket, must face a blitz-happy Dolphins defense. This will also be the true test for the Dolphins, who are up against the Titans defense, but there is no doubt that they are the hottest team in much better shape. Not sure how to turn down the free points here, a game the fish could easily win.
