Miami Dolphins vs. Tennessee Titans Series at a Glance

New, comments

Finshelmet_medium

The Dolphins lead the all time series 17-14.  The Titans are 7-7 against Miami at home.  The last time these two teams met was in September of 2006.  That game might have been more boring than last week's game against the Rams.  Jeff Fisher is 2-6 against the Dolphins in his career but has never coached against current Phins coach Tony Sparano.

The game is back on CBS this week with Dick Enberg and Dan Fouts handling the broadcasting duties.

Info from the NFL press release after the jump.
