Dolphins and Raiders tied to start second quarter

The Dolphins offense had a nice opening drive and Ryan Tannehill got his first NFL TD on a 2 yard run.

Good.

The bad?

The Raiders just pieced together a 64-yard screen pass TD in which Reshad Jones was held, Chris Clemons took a bad angle to the ballcarrier, Koa Misi got pancaked and Karlos Dansby could only trail helplessly as he watched the score.

The game is tied, 7-7.

Odd play and two different calls by replacement refs.

Seems to me 'that 3rd down back' is playing quite well for us.

Rush up the middle is killing us.

This games beginning to get that strange feel of when the implosion begins. We've felt and experienced it before.

Tanne looked like he was shook up after that hit on the sideline.

Yeah, maybe our defense can actually NOT allow over 90 yds on a drive this time.

Defense HAS to step up here.

Hey just realized I was first... Not that it matters.

Great punt. One of our best weapons. Not sure what his contract is, but an immediate extension is warranted.
Another 90+ drive will kill this defense, and maybe set up our offense for failure if we lose patience,

tannehill is just average again i say its not recievers its the qb

D needs a turnover. Come on Coach Coyle.

Im Miami implodes, I have to conclude they are just tired.

There you go Dansby

wait hold it ... Dansby? really?

He should show SEAN SMITH how to cover

305, Tanny has not had much protection the last 2 possessions

NICE STOP!!!!!!

Lookin good

I wonder if RB is ok, he sat out that last series, but Miller was the hot had that drive.

Got Heyward-Bey, but you could see how open he was...Palmer late with the throw.

Nice stand, but the disconcerting thing is the lack of pass rush.

Nice stop by Marshall

Field is tilted in our favor again. ST's looking really good this year. Thiggy loos like the real deal.

If they don't score here, they lose.

Damn Jack Really?

Wake getting chipped and doubled, still no one else can pressure the pocket. The safety blitzes arent getting there either. Ive counted at least 2 safety blitzes with zero impact so far.

Almost block in the back. He pulled up, thankfully.
Lane needs to be involved, he's more than a blocking fullback.
Where is a reverse, draw play, screen to slow down the Raider's D?
Inside screen to Thigpen/Miller?

LONG beaten BADLY!

Pfft. Jake Long's gotta go.

Thanks, Jake.

OMG....

Not all world Jake Long....

We're blowing it. This thing is over.

Guess ur right Jack. My bad lol.

AH-dele..Kevin Harland still in the Manilow era. haha

3 & 24 and a nice drop by Clay...

Long is playing with injuries...
.
.

HAHAHAHAHAHA. Couldn't even hold on to the ball, sad. HAHAHA

Jake Long is really working out for us.

Can't re-sign Long. Has looked bad last two games.

Even if Clay caught that it was WAY too short...Boring

Damn Jake Long. No one's even heard of that guy either at least let a good DE beat you. And what happened to those intermediate routes that were working! Pass protection please

Wow, that was the NFL's worst drive this year. Dolphins always breaking records...

JAKE LONG AND CLAY ARE BOTH DISASTER BUST PICKS.. THEY ARE SINGLE HANDEDLY KEEPING OAKLAND IN THE GAME.

DID YOU SEE CLAY STOP ON THAT ONE HE CAUGHT? LANE WOULD HAVE BULLDOZED

Jakie got a bigger beating than Rihanna.

Long is straight up garbage too. Trade his ass.

I give up!

Time to have a drink and relax!

Clay has to make that catch!!!!

Long? What's going on with him?

Jake Long has really become a joke. But knowing Ireland, he'll probably give him a 6-year extension.

JAKE LONG IS A DISASTER BUST PICK AS I HAVE TOLD YOU FOR 4 YEARS. O LINEMEN ARE FUNGIBLE.

JAKE LONG AND CLAY KEEPING OAKLAND IN THE GAME.

GET LANE THE BALL. GET MILLER THE BALL.

HARTLINE'S A STUD.

AS ALWAYS BUSH IS GREAT 1ST QUARTER BUT NOW HIS LEGS ARE SPENT.

TANNE IS GOOD

WE HAVE NO O LINE.

Special teams are hot though. Come on D. Turnover.

Martin holding his own & Jake struggling??? I don't get it.

Rookie or not, Tannehill's going to have to wake up and soon. Yes he's getting some pressure, but he also needs to improve his pocket awareness. He has the athleticism to get out of the pocket and make plays with his feet too.

He isnt challenging the defense enough with the wide array of physical weapons he has.

Sit back, have alaugh and hope for a turnover or something.

(Sigh..........)

Ah...
the curse of mixing Orange Carpets with Football...
.
.

Is Bush Hurt?!...

Need a freakn turnover to give O a short field!!

ALL day 2 throw....

That's our D. God this team is a joke.

Special teams are hot though. Come on D. Turnover.

Biocentic,

You're the first person that has commented on how much Philbin & his staff have improved the special teams from the last few years.
