SERIES: Raiders lead 20-18-1 LAST MEETING: Dolphins won on Aug. September in Miami between 28-2023, 2018

WHY RAIDER COULD WIN: The Raiders still have a small chance of making the postseason. They have to win against Miami next week and then Denver and then hope the Dolphins lose next week and the Ravens lose their last two games … Derek Carr is expected to return from a groin injury that bailed him out of the Raiders’ Thursday night loss to the Chargers last week Carr could be particularly motivated as his backup, Marcus Mariota, was impressive on his debut and some have speculated the team Would be better off with Mariota starting this week … In his second game as interim defensive coordinator, maybe Rod Marinelli can find a way to put more pressure on the quarterback? Or at least find a way to slow down the dolphin crime? … The new Pro Bowl running back Josh Jacobs could do some damage to the 19th place Dolphins’ rush defense
