Raiders lead Dolphins 14-13 to start third quarter

OAKLAND -- The Dolphins are moving the ball. I will give them that. But they are settling for field goals or field goal tries. They connected on a 24-yarder and missed on a 52-yarder.

The Raiders, meanwhile, connected on a 44-yard bomb from Bruce Gradkowski to Jacoby Ford. And that gave Oakland the lead that they are still holding on to as we get started in the third quarter.

Here are a couple of concerns:

Chad Henne is taking a whipping. He's getting hit often.

And the Dolphins continue to get away from the running game. At one point they led 10-7. Then Henne threw an interception inside the red zone. And then offensive coordinator Dan Henning called five passes in the next six offensive plays, resulting in two consecutive three-and-out series.


Anyway, the live blog continues in the comments section.
