  • Who are the 5 Dolphins on defense to watch vs. Titans

Miami's Jakeem Grant won the longest game with the longest play.

According to ESPN.com, Delanie Walker is expected to miss the rest of the 2018 season after breaking his right ankle during the Titans' 27-20 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday.

When the game restarted a second time Sunday afternoon, it was four hours behind schedule and already the longest game in National Football League history.

"The coaching staff and players and staff - everybody does a good job of trying to figure out the solution", coach Adam Gase said Monday. They followed the same practice before preseason games.

Mariota left the game in the third quarter with an apparent injury to his throwing hand. By the time it was over more than seven hours later, the late afternoon games were all in the books. "Just coming in the first time, it was kind of up and down night, so it was like 'alright, 30 minutes, ' and it was like 'alright, another 30 minutes, ' so you're kind of constantly getting ready to go, getting ready to go, sitting back down".

Trump threatens tariffs on almost all of China's US imports
The U.S. government has citied national security in imposing the measures, alleging Chinese theft of U.S. intellectual property. Cell phones are the biggest US import from China, and so far they've been spared.

But that was the end of the fireworks as the two teams traded field goals to close the game as Miami secured a season-opening win in front of the home crowd.

"Wild game", Tannehill tweeted Monday. "I felt we handled it well, but in the end we didn't do enough to win the game".

Dolphins Pro Bowl safety Reshad Jones grabbed two interceptions, the second one thwarting a deep Titans drive that could have tied the score 24-24. But 2017 bugaboos - tackling, pre-snap penalties and third-down conversions - remained a problem, and five red-zone possessions produced only one touchdown.

"I wasn't as sharp as I like to be", he said. "I'd rather our guys celebrate with the guy who just intercepted the ball, instead of doing what happened there".
