Dolphins Take On Raiders In NFL Action

On Sunday Sin City becomes football city as the Miami Dolphins visit the undefeated Raiders. There is a minor rivalry between the two teams, that dates back to 1966. The Raiders have a slim lead in the rivalry with a record of 20-19-1. These teams battled last year in a day after Christmas showdown that ended with a one-point Dolphins victory, which knocked the Raiders out of playoff contention.

Miami

Dolphins fans had a bit of a scare last week when they witnessed their quarterback Tua Tagovailoa get hurt. He exits last week’s game early, and to add insult to injury, literally, the Dolphins lost to the Bills 35-0. Miami coach Brian Flores praises his young quarterback’s toughness.

Now that Tagovailoa has been ruled out for Sunday’s game veteran quarterback Jacoby Brissett gets the starting nod. The Dolphins will be in very capable hands this weekend with Brissett behind the wheel.

Las Vegas

We all know Vegas is filled with bright lights, big sounds, as well as a pretty good football team. The Raiders come into this matchup undefeated after impressive wins against the Steelers, and Ravens. Their quarterback Derek Carr is a very underrated player he gets a lot of heat from Raiders fans, as well as pundits in the media. Carr is a dark horse MVP candidate, not only Carr but the Raiders of a slew of weapons to work with including underrated tight end Darren Waller.
