Sunday was a somewhat surreal and strange day for an NFL game in Miami, and yet the Dolphins somehow still won.

It began when the team dedicated and named the pressbox at what is now SunLife Stadium after longtime Miami Herald columnist Edwin Pope. Pope has written for the Herald pretty much since the beginning of time, he's reported on the Dolphins for all 45 of their years in the league.

Read about the dedication...and Mr. Pope RIGHT HERE, it will be worth your time.

As for the game. Somehow, 3 different Quarterbacks got injured. 2 for Miami, 1 for Tennessee.

The Dolphins started Chad Pennington, it was to be Pennington's 1st significant game action in well over a year. He got hurt on the 4th play of the game. The man he replaced, Chad Henne, he lasted a couple of quarters before he got injured. The guy who finished up, but not before the Fins went to the Wildcat for a half dozen or so plays....emergency QB Tyler Thigpen.

As for the Titans, Kerry Collins was the starter for an injured Vince Young, Collins got hurt and Young came back in, he wasn't very effective, the Dolphins beat the Titans 29-17.

Until they get pulled, here are some game highlights.
