MI­AMI over Ten­nessee by 6

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - Page 12 Www.playbook.com 1.800.playbook -

The Ti­tans over­hauled their coach­ing staff in the off­sea­son in hopes of bring­ing back the magic to QB Mar­cus Mar­i­ota. En­ter new men­tor Mike Vra­bel who has promised to tai­lor his play­book around the op­tions skills of Mar­i­ota, whose big pay­day comes next off­sea­son – mean­ing he’ll be “all-in” this year. The prob­lem to­day, though, fig­ures to be Ten­nessee’s lack of suc­cess in the past against AFC op­po­si­tion ( last eight games) and Mi­ami’s 4-1 SU and mark in sea­son open­ers the last five years. Dol­phins head coach Adam Gase sits per­haps on the hottest seat in the NFL at the start of the sea­son and needs this game like blood. With QB Ryan Tan­nehill back be­hind cen­ter and the heat and hu­mid­ity in Mi­ami this time of the year work­ing in their fa­vor to­day, look for 0-4 pre­sea­son teams that find them­selves fa­vored in Game One (read: Ten­nessee) to fall to 5-17 ATS.
