Manuel stepped in last week during the game and threw for 106 yards with an interception.

Oddsmakers are listed the Titans as a 1-point road favorite against the Dolphins. Mariota has thrown for 792 yards with three touchdowns and three interceptions, but also has 116 rushing yards and three scores. His mobility is a great strength for the Titans.

Another key injury from last week that will impact today was to Seattle running back Chris Carson. Carson suffered a fracture below his left knee during last week’s game and was put on IR. The rookie has been the leading rusher for Seattle, putting up 208 yards on 49 carries. Seattle will now look for a spark in the run game from Eddie Lacy and J.D. McKissic or even C.J. Prosise and Thomas Rawls. Oddsmakers have Seattle as a 1.5-point underdog on the road today against the Rams.
