As Elton John sang, “Saturday night’s alright for fighting.” The Miami Dolphins and Las Vegas Raiders will do exactly that tonight as they meet in a primetime contest in Sin City. The Dolphins come into the game looking to move to double-digit wins on the season, while the Raiders are hoping to climb above .500 on the season.
Miami, 9-5, is currently holding on to the last playoff position, edging out the Baltimore Ravens based on conference winning percentage. If they continue to win, there is nothing the Ravens can do to jump the Dolphins, giving Miami a clear path to the postseason for the first time since 2016. With a contest against the newly crowned 2020 AFC East champion Buffalo Bills looming in Week 17, picking up a win today is nearly a must for Miami.
The Raiders are the final team remaining in the AFC playoff picture, sitting in the ninth position with their 7-7 record. If Las Vegas is going to make the playoffs, tonight’s game is a true-must win. The Raiders are eliminated from the playoff with a loss or a Ravens win.
