Titans' Mariota (elbow) questionable to return in Miami

Tannehill completed 20 of 28 passes for 230 yards with two interceptions and two touchdowns.

Mariota initially tried to play it off but was eventually replaced by quarterback Blaine Gabbert in the 27-20 loss to the Dolphins.

"I thought it was late and low, but that's not a decision for me to make", Mariota said.

The previous record of five hours and 16 minutes, set by a Ravens-Bears game in 2013, was surpassed before the Titans and Dolphins returned to the field from the second delay of the day. The teams went to the locker room during the delay and stayed on the field for halftime, which was shortened to three minutes. Kenny Stills capped off the 5:21 drive with a 10-yard touchdown grab from Tannehill in the front right corner of the end zone.

While a odd and long day, the Dolphins get the 2018 season off on the right foot.

During the preseason, Dolphins head coach Adam Gase said the team had some wrinkles they didn't use during the four exhibition games.

And when the game finally returned from the second lengthy weather delay, Fox wasn't quite ready to return in full form. "I was going, 'Please run by me'".

The Titans had crossed midfield when Jones intercepted a Gabbert pass, and Jason Sanders' 30-yard field goal iced the game with 3:49 to go. Jackson hurt his shoulder on a 26-yard punt return. Lewan sprawled face down on the turf, then suddenly sprang to his feet, and players exchanged words and shoves.

FRACAS: Lewan appeared to be briefly knocked out when flattened on Andre Branch's blindside block during an interception return by Reshad Jones. "There are a lot of plays I wanted to have back".

Quarterback Marcus Mariota sustained an elbow injury that forced him out of the Titans' opener against the Dolphins in the third quarter.
