Dolphins Show Staying Power In Season-Opening Win

Delanie Walker

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills runs in a touchdown in the fourth quarter against the Tennessee Titans.

"I couldn't feel my fingers, feel my hand", Mariota said.

Two lightning delays could not keep the Miami Dolphins from their first win of the season.

The game went through two lengthy weather delays, and has already spanned over six hours. Less than four minutes later, Stills scored over the top of Tennessee's defense on a 75-yard pass from Ryan Tannehill, who made his comeback after missing the previous 20 games due to knee surgery.

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

On Mariota's first interception of the game, picked by the Dolphins' Reshad Jones, Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan also was hurt when Dolphins defensive lineman Andre Branch hit Lewan hard during the return.

The game didn't resume until almost two hours later, when the AFC squads came onto the field to close the half. The teams went to the locker room during the delay and stayed on the field for halftime, which was shortened to three minutes.

Lightning forced a halt again midway through the third quarter, and the second stoppage lasted just over two hours. About 10,000 fans remained at the finish. But it was enough, with Jones intercepting two passes, Jakeem Grant running back a 102-yard kickoff return for a score and Miami's run game working most of the game.

The Dolphins marched down the field with a 12-play, 98-yard drive in the second quarter to take their first lead. Lewan sprawled face down on the turf, then suddenly sprang to his feet, and players exchanged words and shoves.
