QB Ryan Tannehill has thrown for 1080 yards, 7 TDs, and 2 INTs, but his 56.7 completion percentage is one of the worst in the NFL. He has regressed this season after signing a contract extension worth up to $95 million over six years. His 77.1 passer rating is 31st of 35 quarterbacks.
Rookie WR Rishard Matthew (17 rec, 278 yards, 3 TDs) leads the team in receiving catching yards and touchdowns. Top pass-catcher Jarvis Landry (28 rec, 270 yards, 0 TDs) has yet to find the end zone despite 4 red-zone targets so far this season.
RB Lamar Miller (37 att, 131 yards, 0 TDs) has been disappointing, averaging just 3.5 yards per carry after posting a career-best 5.1 in 2014.
Miami’s defense allows 25.2 points (20th), 239.0 passing yards, and 117.0 rushing yards (23rd) per game. Avery Williamson leads Tennessee with 25 tackles, Michael Griffin has 23 tackles, and Zach Brown has 22 tackles.

Rookie QB Marcus Mariota has thrown 1020 yards, 8 TDs & 3 INTs and has showed great poise after the jump to the pros. Last week he did fail to throw a TD pass for the first time in his young career, expect that trend not to continue this week.
WR Kendall Wright (16 rec, 242 yards, 2 TDs) is the team’s leading receiver. TE Delaine Walker (14 rec, 147 yards, 1 TD) is nursing a wrist injury suffered against the Browns.
Rusher Bishop Sankey (36 att, 146 yards, 1 TD) jumped out of the gates with a breakout game in week 1 and since has struggled an regressed to last year’s plodding rushing style. It had looked like Antonio Andrews (19 att, 58 yards, 2 TD)had emerged as a starting option , but he worked only 14 snaps against Buffalo.
Tennessee’s defense allows 22.8 points (18th), 167.0 passing yards (1st), 117.0 rushing yards (23rd) per game. Reshad Jones leads Miami with 43 tackles, Jelani Jenkins has 30 tackles, and Koa Misi has 29 tackles.
