The Titans held Tua Tagovailoa and Miami’s explosive offense in check for most of the game but still fell behind by two touchdowns in the fourth quarter, thanks to critical mistakes that gave short fields to the Dolphins.

NCAAFB – Minnesota defensive coordinator Joe Rossi departs for same job at MSU
Minnesota defensive coordinator Joe Rossi has accepted the same job at Michigan State under new head coach Jonathan Smith, according to a person with knowledge of the move. The person confirmed Rossi’s departure to The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because Michigan State had not yet announced the hire. Rossi had been in the role at Minnesota for five-plus seasons. His salary in 2023 was $1.1 million in the first year of a three-year contract. The deal included a $330,000 buyout Rossi will owe Minnesota for the early departure.

PGA – Rahm is suspended by the PGA Tour
Jon Rahm has officially been suspended by the PGA Tour for joining LIV Golf. That’s not a surprise. The defection is good news for the likes of Mackenzie Hughes and Carl Yuan. PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan is telling players that Rahm’s suspension means he is officially removed from the FedEx Cup list. That moves up Hughes one spot to No. 50 and makes him eligible for all the $20 million events next year. It might be even better news for Yuan. He goes up one spot to No. 125. That’s the magic number to keep his PGA Tour card.
