Your Miami Dolphins stay home again this week for a second prime-time game in a row. The Oakland Raiders travel cross country to play your Phins at Hard Rock Stadium. The Dolphins fans were riding high coming into last week after winning three straight games, giving the team a solid 4 and 2 record at that point. After a demoralizing 40 to zip beat-down at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens the Dolphins fans are looking for a bounce-back this week.
Dolphins head coach Adam Gase looked to shake things up after the loss, making a move that was less than popular with many fans when he traded away starting running back Jay Ajayi to the Philadelphia Eagles for a 4th round pick in next years draft. Rumors have since surfaced that not only had Ajayi not learned his blocking assignments but had an in general bad attitude and that the team had a looming decision to make on Jay based on his bad knees.
On the other side of the ball, the Raiders come in limping a bit themselves. After beginning the year with two wins Oakland has dropped five of their last six games including a hammering they took at the hands of the Buffalo Bills last week.
