The Tennessee Titans traveled to Miami this weekend and shocked the Dolphins, the world, and maybe even themselves. The Titans beat the Dolphins by a score of 37-3. The Dolphins are a much improved team this season, but the Titans were better in Week 10.There were some huge plays made by big play-makers. Let's look at the "Studs-N-Duds" that helped to determine the outcome of this lop-sided affair.HEROWhen I received this assignment this was the last pick that I would've thought of for Hero but here we are, awarding the Tennessee Titans defense with the honor. The Titans have been ransacked by offenses in most of their meetings this seasonTennessee ranks 27th against the pass and 28th against the run. Both stats leave them amongst the bottom five teams in the NFL. They've allowed on average 266.2 passing yards, while allowing 132.8 rushing yards. However, the Titans are ranked ninth in takeaways which were a major difference in the game.Not sure if any fantasy owners thought to play the Titans' defense, but they picked Tannehill off three times and recovered a fumble. Although they give up over 130 rushing yards per game, they only the Dolphins 54 rushing yards all evening. After allowing almost 270 passing yards per game, the Titans only allowed 201 yards.The Titans defense came up big this week, thus making them our hero!Honorable Mention:Chris Johnson - 23 carries, 126 yards, 1 TDBrian Hartline - 8 receptions, 79 yardsZEROMan, oh man, Ryan Tannehill. I'm not sure if Tannehill's return was premature or not, but he stunk up the field this week. Tannehill's six-week streak without an interception ended at 107 passes when Akeem Ayers deflected a throw to McCarthy, who sprinted along the sideline to score for a 21-0 lead.Tannehill went 23 for 39 but had a passer rating of only 42.4. The worst part was, with Aaron Rodgers on his bye week, I had to either start Tannehill or Joe Flacco. And as you may have figured at this point, I gave Tannehill the nod. Now, I can't ask myself what I was thinking, because the kid has been playing surprisingly well.Hopefully the rookie learns from his mistakes, but as far as this week goes, you'll be the ZERO! I mean, it's quite fitting, seeing as to how you got me as many fantasy points!
