Raiders vs. Dolphins: TV Schedule, Live Stream, Spread Info, Game Time and More

The Miami Dolphins (0-1) are hosting the Oakland Raiders (0-1) in a battle between two teams that direly need a win.

Oakland was pegged by many scouts and analysts in the offseason to make a playoff run and possibly win the AFC West, but was shocked on national TV in the season opener.

Miami is hoping that their rookie QB can show some signs of development, as he completely failed to impress in any facet of his game in his debut.

Keep reading to find out more about this exciting matchup, what’s at stake, who to watch out for and a prediction on the final score.

What’s At Stake?

These teams started the 2012 campaign off with a disappointing loss. If either squad wants to even think about making the playoffs this season, a win on Sunday is absolutely crucial.

While it’s still early, neither the Raiders nor Dolphins have the luxury to stumble out of the gate. Both possess young rosters in competitive divisions, meaning a second defeat would be devastating to their postseason chances.

There is no doubt that whoever walks out victorious will have a much more positive outlook when they are sitting at 1-1, rather than 0-2.
