MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – The Miami Dolphins lost to the Tennessee Titans 30-17 on Sunday in a game that ended with Miami fans chanting that they wanted backup quarterback Matt Moore to replace starter Ryan Tannehill.
Tannehill, playing behind a banged up offensive line that was without Branden Albert and Laremy Tunsil, was sacked six times and threw two interceptions.
The Dolphins fell to 1-4 in Adam Gase's first season as a head coach in the NFL.
But Gase, in response to the fans chanting for Moore, said that Tannehill, "will be in there for the rest of the season."
Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota threw a touchdown to former Dolphins wide receiver Rishard Mathews in the fourth quarter however, the PAT was blocked, but the Titans put the game away with that score that gave Tennessee a 30-17 lead.
Tannehill threw an interception in the third quarter that led to a 40 yard field goal by Ryan Succop which gave the Titans a 24-14 lead.
Mariota gave the Titans the early seven-nothing lead with a five yard quarterback keeper near the end of the first quarter.
The Dolphins answered thanks to rookie wide receiver Jakeem Grant who returned a punt 74 yards for a touchdown, tying the game at seven early in the second quarter.
But Mariota would add two touchdown passes in the first half, one to former Hurricanes player Andre Johnson and the other to Delani Walker which gave the Titans a 21-14 lead at the half.
Jay Ajayi scored on a four yard run in the second quarter to tie the game at 14.
