Dolphins vs Raiders Duke It Out in the UKPublished September 28, 2014 by Sol FH
The NFL comes to Wembley Stadium for a special London edition featuring the Miami Dolphins vs Oakland Raiders live at 18:00 (UK).
This week, the NFL travels across the pond to offer the growing number of fans in the UK the chance to watch professional football. This will be the first of three international games planned for this season and although the teams playing in tonight's game aren't the best so far, it should be an excellent game.
The Miami Dolphins are not having the type of season they had hoped for and currently sit 1-2 in the AFC East. If Miami are not happy with the season so far, the Oakland Raiders (0-3) should be outright embarrassed about theirs. Both Miami and Oakland sit in last place in their respective divisions and critics are skeptical of head coaches Joe Philbin (Dolphins) and Dennis Allen (Raiders) chances of turning the season around.
The Dolphins were crushed last week by the Chiefs (34-19), while the Raiders lost a close one to the Patriots (9-16). For Miami, it is their offense that looks like the biggest weak link right now. They are ranked in the high 20's in almost every offensive category except rushing, which they are in seventh.
The Raiders are in even worse shape. They are in last place in the entire NFL in numerous offensive categories and if they continue to play as terribly as they have been, it will be a long season.
