Oakland currently leads the AFC West by one game over the Denver Broncos, and are coming into Miami on a three game winning streak. The Dolphins dropped their last game, on Thanksgiving at Dallas, but have won their last two in Miami. Miami has been playing much better football over the last month than they did during the first eight weeks of the season. The Raiders, meanwhile, are getting into rhythm with Carson Palmer under center, and are looking to make the playoffs for the first time in nine years.
These two teams always seem to play memorable games, like the Dolphins debut in 1966, the Dolphins rushing for 266-yards in the 1973 AFC Championship game (sending Miami to their third straight Super Bowl), the 1974 "Sea of Hands" Divisional Playoff game, Dan Marino's debut in 1983, and, of course, the 2001 Jay Fiedler come back game.
Notable: this game marks Jason Taylor's 200th game as a Dolphin.
As usual, don't post any pictures in this thread - they only slow it down. And do not request or post links to illegal internet streams of the game (instant temporary ban if you do).
Overflow threads will be posted as needed.
With this being Jim "Mad Dog" Mandich's induction into the Miami Dolphins Ring of Honor, there's really only one way to end this game thread...
ALL RIGHT MIAMI!!!!!!!!!!!!!
