Miami Dolphins vs Oakland Raiders NFL Football Score and Live Coverage - Plenty of parallels exist between the Miami Dolphins and Oakland Raiders, two teams that will face another at the Oakland Coliseum this Sunday in a Week 12 tilt that holds a great deal of significance for each.
Live from the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum (Oakland, California), the game matchup between the Miami Dolphins vs Oakland Raiders will start at exactly 4:05 pm ET, Sunday, November 28, 2010.
Meanwhile, the Miami Dolphins downgraded wide receiver Brandon Marshall from doubtful to out for Sunday’s road game against the Oakland Raiders.
Miami’s problems under center stem from injuries that knocked both reestablished starter Chad Pennington and recently-demoted backup Chad Henne out of a 29-17 victory over Tennessee on Nov. 14. Third-stringer Tyler Thigpen was pressed into duty when the team hosted Chicago just four days later, but failed to provide a spark in a 16-0 loss to the Bears.
“It’s possible,” linebacker Channing Crowder said. “(Coach) Tony (Sparano) said all our team goals — winning the division, winning the Super Bowl and all that — are still in sight. We just made it hard for ourselves.”
On the other hand, the Oakland Raiders, in a continuing quest for consistency at quarterback, plan to start Bruce Gradkowski over Jason Campbell against the Miami Dolphins, sources with knowledge of the situation said Saturday.
“The biggest thing you’ve got to do is get it behind us,” Cable said. “We all feel mad as hell about what happened (Sunday). I don’t think we feel sorry for ourselves or anything like that, which is good. So it’s time to move on. We’ve got Miami coming in here. There’s a lot that we’re playing for in these last six weeks.”
Oakland’s quarterback quandary is a result of performance, with an ineffective Jason Campbell having been pulled in the third quarter of last week’s forgettable 35-3 defeat at Pittsburgh in favor of understudy Bruce Gradkowski. Neither was able to get the offense going, as the Raiders managed a mere 182 total yards and converted only 3-of-14 third-down tries.
The Raiders fell out of a first-place tie in the AFC West with the loss, with rival Kansas City gaining sole possession of the division’s top spot with a Week 11 triumph over Arizona.
Miami, which is presently faced with a two-game deficit in the race for the conference’s final Wild Card spot, hopes a trip out West provides an opportunity to get back on track. The Dolphins have been one of the league’s best road teams this year, having posted a 4-1 record as the visitor so far in 2010.
