MIAMI (AP) -- The Miami Dolphins achieved their season-high point total against Tennessee, and it only took three quarterbacks, a flea-flicker and the revival of the wildcat.
Defense helped, too. Randy Moss managed only one catch in his first game with the Titans, Miami takeaways led to two touchdowns and the Dolphins won 29-17 Sunday.
After Miami quarterbacks Chad Pennington (shoulder) and Chad Henne (knee) departed with injuries, third-stringer Tyler Thigpen led an 85-yard drive in the fourth quarter to seal the bizarre victory.
The Dolphins (5-4) snapped a five-game home losing streak, including three losses this season. Tennessee (5-4) lost coming off a bye for the first time in five years.
Kerry Collins started at quarterback for the Titans and struggled through the first half before departing with a calf injury. Vince Young replaced him despite a sprained left ankle and threw for only 92 yards with two turnovers.
