MIAMI -- Six different players attempted passes in a wild and wacky game between the Miami Dolphins and Tennessee Titans at Sun Life Stadium, but Miami came out on top with a much-needed 29-17 win to stay in the playoff race.
Both Chads, Pennington and Henne, suffered injuries for the Dolphins and Tyler Thigpen saved the day with a game-clinching 85-yard touchdown drive that accounted for the final margin.
The Dolphins' depth at quarterback came in handy on Sunday, as Miami tallied 316 yards of passing. The aerial display was direly needed, as their ground game couldn't even break 3 yards-per-carry.
Miami (5-4) breaks a two-game losing streak and notches its first home win of the season while Tennessee (5-4) drops a contest in which it was only a one-point underdog on the road after a bye week.
• Henne was 19-of-28 for 240 yards, one touchdown and one interception before going down with a knee injury.
• Forcing turnovers had been an issue for Miami's defense coming in but two forced fumbles and an interception helped the cause as 14 points were scored off the two fumbles.
• Chris Johnson rushed for 117 yards on 17 carries and a touchdown but was kept at bay when it counted.
• Kerry Collins played poorly before leaving prior to the second half with a calf injury. Young failed to generate much more offense, providing the Titans only second half score on a pass to Nate Washington.
• Randy Moss failed to make a bang in his debut, recording only one catch on the day.
• Ronnie Brown score on the Dolphins' opening possession for the second consecutive week, breaking through for a 2-yard score. Brown also found the end zone early last week against Baltimore. His previous touchdown this season came in Week 1.
