The Raiders and Dolphins will both look to rebound from Week 1 losses when they do battle in Miami on Sunday.
The Oakland Raiders will hit the road to face the Miami Dolphins on Sunday at Sun Life Stadium in Miami. Both teams enter the game at 0-1, as the Raiders are coming off a loss to the San Diego Chargers on "Monday Night Football," while the Dolphins were pummeled by the Houston Texans in their Sunday opener.
The Raiders enter as 1.5-point favorites, a figure that would likely be higher had they not made so many miscues in their 22-14 Week 1 loss. While they only turned the ball over once, the Raiders botched three punts due to backup long snapper Travis Goethel's difficulties in getting the ball to punter Shane Lechler. Oakland moved the ball fairly well otherwise, with quarterback Carson Palmer completing 32 of 46 passes for 297 yards and a touchdown.
On the other side of the coin, the Dolphins were thoroughly beaten in Houston. Rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill threw three interceptions in his debut, and Miami's only touchdown came on a 72-yard punt return by Marcus Thigpen. Miami will have to cut down on its four turnovers to win in Week 2.
Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET, and the game can be seen on CBS. For a detailed national coverage map, click here.
