Dolphins expect game vs Titans will be played in Miami

MIAMI (AP) The Dolphins anticipate their game against the Tennessee Titans will be played in Miami as scheduled Sunday after South Florida escaped the worst of Hurricane Matthew.

The storm had raised concerns the game might need to be moved to Nashville, but the brunt of Matthew stayed to east of the area when it passed Wednesday. The Dolphins said Friday they expect no change in the schedule.

Team offices were closed Thursday, but the Dolphins planned to practice as scheduled Friday.

For the Dolphins, the game is the start of an NFL record homestand that includes four consecutive games in Miami, along with a bye.
