Raiders vs. Dolphins: Preview, score prediction for Week 9

Raiders vs. Dolphins: Preview, score prediction for Week 9”

The Dolphins, who also rank 31st in rushing yards and are the only team in the National Football League without a rushing touchdown, traded away starting running back Jay Ajayi to the Philadelphia Eagles this week.

For the Miami Dolphins, they are also coming off a loss. The Dolphins and Raiders last met in primetime on December 14, 1992, a game Miami won 20-7.

Parker's expected return will put the Dolphins' group of core wideouts at full strength, a notable development with Jay Cutler (ribs) set to return from a one-game absence and bell cow Jay Ajayi no longer in the fold following the running back's trade to Philadelphia on Tuesday. The Dolphins are already in Wild Card contention despite their offensive struggles and a win at home this week will give them at least a tie for second AFC Wild Card spot if not the sole possession, depending on if the Jacksonville Jaguars win. Prior to suffering his ankle injury in Week 5, Parker had averaged six catches on nine targets in three games out of the gate, suggesting that he could rekindle his chemistry with Cutler as soon as this weekend, assuming no further setbacks with the ankle. Jarvis Landry leads the Dolphins with 3 touchdown receptions on the season. Miami travels to Carolina for their Week 10 affair.

When asked about what he would like to see from Melifonwu against the Dolphins, Defensive Coordinator Ken Norton, Jr., joked that he'd just like to see him on the field, but with all the injuries now ailing the Raiders secondary, inserting a strong, athletic player like the former UConn Husky into the mix will hopefully benefit the group as a whole. The Raiders can not afford to fall to 3-6, and have a chance at the postseason. The Raiders, who ranked seventh last season in points scored per game, now rank 18th in that same category despite the fact that they only added more offensive weapons in the offseason. This season, Oakland can not seem to gain any traction. Marshawn Lynch came to Oakland, but has been relatively ineffective, with just 2 touchdowns all season. As we mentioned earlier, this is about as much of a must win game for both these teams as you will find.

Sunday night, when the Raiders hit the field at Hard Rock Stadium, they'll be the only game on TV. They are going to look to get back on track against an Oakland team that has yet to really play well for a consistent time period. This team is at its best when it plays never-say-die football in all four quarters.

Now, interceptions aren't the be all end all statistic in football, but at this point, I think everyone on the Silver and Black's defense would breathe a little easier if the team is able to snag a pick. Bet the Dolphins +3 over the Raiders on Sunday.
