Dolphins Keep Raiders Winless

The Miami Dolphins defeated the Oakland Raiders 38-14 on Sunday in a game played at Wembley Stadium in London as part of the International Series contest.

At the beginning of the game, the Raiders were able to score in the first quarter with a couple of impressive catches. However, that was about all that the Raiders offense was able to do for the entire game. There wasn’t another touchdown for them until the fourth quarter.

Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr suffered a knee injury late in the third quarter with the score 31-7. Third string quarterback Matt McGloin replaced Carr and threw a touchdown pass while also being picked off twice.

The Dolphins were able to take the lead early in the second quarter and continued to put points up on the board to solidify their win.

Earlier in the week, there was a lot of speculation surrounding whether or not Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill woud start against the Raiders. However, Tannehill played well, tossing two touchdown passes while throwing for 278 yards.

Dolphins coach Joe Philbin thought his quarterback played well.

“It looked like he played a very good football game,” he said.

Tannehill was happy with the win but knows it is only one win on the schedule.

“We have to keep building on it,” he said.

The Dolphins have a bye week this week but play again in two weeks against Green Bay at home.
