The Oakland Raiders continued their up-down season on Sunday in London against the Miami Dolphins, and unfortunately, this was another down week for the Silver & Black as they lost to the Miami Dolphins, 38-14. Nothing went right for Oakland, and the team is now 0-4 this season heading into their bye week.
The Oakland Raiders defense needs all the help it can get every game, so when three linebackers could possibly miss the next contest, it’s something to be concerned about for the team. Heading into Sunday’s Wembley Stadium matchup against the Miami Dolphins, the Silver & Black also will be without backup quarterback Matt Schaub.
There are two things going for the Oakland Raiders this week, as they prepare for their Week Four game in London, England: first, they play the Miami Dolphins, and second, the game is at a neutral site. The Silver & Black can beat the Dolphins, and they won’t have the pressure of performing in front of a home crowd.
After suffering just their 3rd loss of the season last week, its important for the 49ers to avoid a losing streak on Sunday. Standing in their way of getting back in the winning column will be the Miami Dolphins, who have played well in spots, but overall have not had a good season. This one does not appear to be close on paper, but the 49ers proved just last week that there are no easy victories.
A lot is expected of a top-10 draft pick, no matter their position. See who will do what once the season kicks off.
