They do things a bit differently across the pond in the UK. They drive on the other side of the road, they eat baked beans with breakfast, and they have Def (freaking) Leppard play live before a regular season NFL game. And it was (freaking) awesome. Anyway, enough of me geeking out about seeing one of my favorite bands as a kid live. Let's get to some football.
Since this is a home game for the Raiders, they're treating it like one. Playing Al Davis: A Football Life on the jumbotron prior to the game, putting an inflated Raiders helmet for the Raiders to run out of during intros.

Dolphins win the toss and defer to the second half. Raiders receive the opening kick off.
