However Cuter might be slowly coming around and or Gase is slowly trusting him more. Titans coach Mike Mularkey said Mariota will be a game-time decision.
The Dolphins feature a trio of talented receivers from Jarvis Landry to Kenny Stills and DeVante Parker.
The best way to help a sputtering Dolphins offense that looks lost in the wilderness? At that point, Cutler had 21 passing yards and an interception.
The problem is, over the last two weeks the Miami offense has produced a total of six points.
"You never want to lose like that", Woodyard said. "It's just not acceptable".
"Again, we're going to take it day-by-day with Marcus, make sure we're smart with it".
With 4:34 remaining in the first quarter, Dolphins defensive tackle Davon Godchaux stripped the ball away from DeMarco Murray.
Referee Bill Vinovich called it a touchdown and the call was upheld on replay, giving the Dolphins a 10-0 lead.
The #Miami Dolphins are not playing like the team that made some serious noise last season. That score was set up by a Jay Ajayi fumble, which was forced by Adoree' Jackson and recovered by Kevin Byard. Facing a strong run defense and a lackluster pass defense, it will be interesting to see how the run-oriented Titans game plan for tomorrow.
Mariota (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
The showdown against the Colts becomes a battle of two teams with injured franchise quarterbacks trying to find a way.
"I kind of messed around with him", Maualuga said.
"I don't like to tell the opponent what I'm going to do, but I didn't like what I saw Sunday", LeBeau said.
There's not much reason for offensive optimism as long as Cassel is under center.
Rookie first round pick Charles Harris had a key third down pass deflection and then an enormous sack on third down late in the game. Ndamukong Suh and Lawrence Timmons and Bobby McCain and countless others delivered jarring hits.
Cameron Wake added: "That sack is just the beginning".
Cutler admitted afterwards that the offense's performance was "piss poor", and although he admitted to hearing the crowd, he claims he didn't understand what they were saying.
"I thought they were talking about yards", Pouncey said.
Cutler had to feel at home despite the crowd screaming they wanted backup Matt Moore. Gase could have used the same notion as with inserting Williams at RB with the WR/TE, although Jakeem Grant was used sparsely throughout the game. It's not Jay Cutler. "Is it because we're the Titans?".
