The Las Vegas Raiders are looking to win three in a row with a tough match on the road. They travel to Miami to take on the Miami Dolphins, who are coming off a bye and are in first place in the AFC East.

Antonio Pierce is 2-0 as a head coach and will face his first colossal test. The Dolphins are one of the best offenses in the league, averaging 31.2 points per game, which is 1st in the NFL. It will take an excellent performance from both sides of the ball to win this game.

With injuries causing uncertainty at certain positions, the Raiders made moves before the game. One of them was signing DJ Turner to the active roster. Turner could help as a returner in special teams and another weapon in the slot.

With Kolton Miller and Dylan Parham's injuries, the Raiders activated Brandon Parker and Hroniss Grassu from the practice squad. It could mean the Raiders will be missing both players on Sunday. Fans hope they push through the pain and help the Raiders pull off an upset.
