On a day when the Tennessee Titans’ passing attack threw 18 passes and totaled 110 yards, running back D’Onta Foreman was the spark Tennessee needed to put it over the top in a 34-3 win over the Miami Dolphins.
Foreman carried the ball 26 times for 132 yards and a touchdown, while also tallying a long gain of 35 yards. His 21-yard touchdown run in the second quarter put the Titans up 17-3.
Since the injury to Derrick Henry, Foreman has been sensational in picking up the slack, with 112 carries for 497 yards and three scores, along with eight receptions for 108 yards.
If Foreman doesn’t stick with the Titans beyond the 2021 season, he has more than proven he deserves a look as a starting back elsewhere.
Honorable mention: The defense
Tennessee’s defense was sensational yet again in this one, allowing just three points and 256 yards of total offense. The unit also notched three sacks, five passes defensed and two turnovers, while holding Miami to just 3-for-12 on third downs.
The Dolphins’ offense had multiple drives get into Tennessee territory in this game, but still wasn’t able to break through. The Titans have now allowed a remarkable 9.8 points per game in their last four.
After securing the AFC South in Week 17, the Titans will look to clinch the No. 1 seed in Week 18, which they can do with a win over the Houston Texans.
