The turnaround of the Miami Dolphins has been nothing short of extraordinary. People can say what they please about the teams Miami has played on its seven-game winning streak, but any way you slice it, a few months ago the Dolphins were one of those bottom-feeding teams at 1-7. Tua Tagovailoa has successfully shelved any conversation of being benched, and while he hasn’t been perfect, Miami’s defense has done more than enough to pick up the slack. Sunday they get another test against the Tennessee Titans, who may have taken a step back from being the juggernaut that beat five straight 2020 playoff teams, but are coming off of a good win against the 49ers.

Key in that win was Ryan Tannehill, who looked extremely efficient in the 20-17 victory. Tannehill completed 22 of his 29 attempts for 209 yards and a touchdown, with 145 of those yards going to A.J. Brown. Brown looked very good coming off of an IR stint from a chest injury, also recovering from a quiet November. He’ll have to continue to drive the Titans offense heading into the final stretch of the season, particularly with the Colts coming perilously close to Tennessee in the AFC South.

This will be the best test the Dolphins have had since mid-November. They were able to grind out a win against the Ravens, and they’ll have to do so against against a Titans team that has managed to stay efficient without its best player in Derrick Henry. Todd Downing has proven to be adaptable in putting Tannehill in positions to succeed, and Tennessee now finds itself a win away from clinching the AFC South. A win would also put them at 5-3 since Henry went down, no small feat when you have to completely reinvent your offensive philosophy.

In the Dolphins’ most recent win, they had a perfect recipe for success against the outbreak-ridden Saints. The defense started the game with a pick-6 on rookie Ian Book, and that was all it took. With a final score of 20-3, the defense completely overmatched the makeshift Saints offense, frustrating the Saints in the process. That’s been the gameplan for Miami, as they try to break into the playoffs among a deep AFC, particularly a deep AFC East.
