The Raiders are currently 7-4 and lead the AFC West by a game over The Denver Tebows. Lets look at Miami and see how the Raiders can attack them and beat them.
Destroy Reggie Bush-The Dolphins run game starts and ends with Reggie Bush. He is a GREAT football player.The Raiders have to stop this cat. How? Gang Tackle him and set the damn edge on D. Reggie Bush is not a big guy, but he is a fast guy. The Raiders need to PUNISH him when he touches the football. I want to see our guys in hot pursuit every single time he touches that football. Don't give him the perimeter. He also has 3 fumbles this year, so it would be nice to see guys ball-hawking and looking to knock the ball out. I want to see the Raiders get his head a lil bit and take him out the game mentally. Hit him violently every time.
Attack The Secondary Early-The Dolphins are excellent against the run but bad against the pass, giving up an average of 248.1 yards per game, ranking 26th in the NFL. The Raiders should use the play action passing game a lot. The Dolphins know the Raiders are a running team, so the Raiders should try to establish the run early and then hit some deep shots the field. I just don't see their secondary winning the battle against the Raiders speedy wideouts.
Pass Rush- The Raiders are currently 5th in the NFL with 32 sacks. Our guys get after the QB every week and put them on the ground. That's where Matt Moore needs to be next Sunday. He is a good QB who can make good throws when he has time. I want to see the Raiders get exotic with their pressures on Moore. Mix it up and give him crazy looks. We can get to him. Miami has given up 34 sacks this year. Only Seattle, Arizona and St. Louis have let their QB get mangled worse than that.
Basically i want to see Oakland impose their will on Miami. Miami is a solid football team that plays hard and smart. The Raiders need to punch them in the mouth early and go from there. 8-4 is right there.
