Miami Dolphins vs. Oakland Raiders: Full Report Card Grades for Oakland

That was hard to watch.

After an inspiring performance in Week 3, the Oakland Raiders seemed primed for their first win of the season against a struggling Miami Dolphins team. But in Week 4, that wasn't the case as Oakland was embarrassed in a 38-14 loss.

The Raiders actually began the game on an very impressive 10-play, 74-yard drive that ended with a touchdown pass from Derek Carr to backup tight end Brian Leonhardt. The drive ended 5:22 into the game. That was as far as Oakland's positive day would go.

On both sides of the ball, the game was an endless sequence of errors. On offense, the Raiders had six first downs in the first quarter. They didn't get their eighth first down until the third quarter. Following the impressive opening drive, the Oakland offense once again turned into a series of drives that ended in three-and-outs and punts.

The defense was just as bad. The defensive line was pushed around all game, the linebackers always seemed to be behind the play and the secondary was completely picked apart by Ryan Tannehill, a quarterback who had been playing so poorly that his own head coach wouldn't commit to him just days before the game.

The only silver lining to any of this is that the Raiders are heading into their bye week, giving them two weeks to prepare for their next game. With how embarrassingly bad they played against Miami, they're going to have their work cut out for them over the next two weeks.
