The Tennessee Titans and Miami Dolphins Week 17 matchup at Nissan Stadium has all the makings of a defensive struggle.
The Titans’ defense has been a revelation this season and has been the driving force behind the team’s 10-5 record. Tennessee’s unit, which has been elite against the run and sports one of the league’s better fronts, has been particularly great lately, with 12 points allowed per game in its last three.
Meanwhile, the Dolphins aren’t too shabby themselves. They sport a top-10 run defense and a pass-rush that has tallied the most sacks in the NFL with 45. During its seven-game winning streak, Miami has been giving up an astounding 11.7 points per contest.
If the Titans want to get out of Nissan Stadium with a win over the Dolphins on Sunday, which would clinch the AFC South for them, they’ll have to win all or the majority of the following matchups we discuss below.
