Dolphins' Flores: Rosen to start rest of season

  Dolphins' Flores: Rosen to start rest of season Klatt says losing to Texas would be a deal breaker for Hurts

Josh Rosen will be the Miami Dolphins' starting quarterback for the remainder of the season, head coach Brian Flores announced Wednesday, according to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.

"I like where Josh Rosen is," Flores told reporters, according to The Palm Beach Post's Joe Schad. "He's improving on a week-to-week basis. He's a young, talented player. He needs reps to improve. Throw the ball away when scrambling. Make good decisions. Be accurate."

The Dolphins acquired Rosen from the Arizona Cardinals during April's draft for a second-round pick. He was locked in a training camp battle with veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick - which he ultimately lost - before being named the starter prior to Week 3.

In two starts this season, the 2018 first-rounder has completed 55.6% of his passes for 380 yards, one touchdown, and one interception behind a struggling offensive line and running game.

The winless Dolphins battle the Washington Redskins in Week 6 before two straight road tilts with the Buffalo Bills and Pittsburgh Steelers.

Titans bench Marcus Mariota, will start Ryan Tannehill against Chargers .
Tennessee hopes that Ryan Tannehill could revive a stagnant offense against the L.A. Chargers.Mike Vrabel benched Marcus Mariota against the Broncos, and the former No. 2 overall pick will stay as the backup for at least one more game. This is obviously a key move for a Titans team that has Mariota in a contract year. Mariota, 25, and Jameis Winston are the first quarterbacks to play a season on a fifth-year option; neither has done much to justify an extension in 2019.
