Raiders head coach Jon Gruden signed a 10-year, 100 million dollar deal in 2018. Since then the Raiders have slowly but steadily increased their win total every year. Last year, like this one, they started out 2-0 before falling to Cam Newton and the Patriots. Now, they have another chance at the franchise’s first 3-0 start since 2002, the year they went to the Super Bowl under head coach Bill Callahan. 

Along with the Raiders overall improvement under Gruden, quarterback Derek Carr has also grown. His passer rating has gone up every year and this season he’s off to a great start. Now in his eighth season, Carr has thrown four touchdowns and just one interception through the first two weeks for a passer rating of 104.1. Carr threw for 382 yards last week in the Raiders’ 26-17 win over the Steelers and finally was able to bring Henry Ruggs to life. The 2020 12th overall pick caught a career high five passes for 113 yards and a touchdown.

The inactives are as follows:

Dolphins: CB Elijah Campbell, OT Greg Little, WR Preston Williams, S Trill Williams, WR Albert Wilson

Raiders: OT Jackson Barton, TE Nick Bowers, RB Josh Jacobs, DE Malcolm Koonce, S Dallin Leavitt, DT Damion Square, S Roderic Teamer


The Dolphins enter Vegas after getting some bad news about their quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. He will miss at least a week with a fractured rib. The injury was suffered in the first quarter of Miami’s 35-0 loss to the Bills last week. Jacoby Brissett will start in Tua’s place. Brissett was unable to get much going against Buffalo, completing just 24-of-his-40 passes for 169 yards and an interception. The 28-year-old Brissett hasn’t started a game since 2019 when he went 7-8 in that role for the Colts.

The Raiders are 4-point favorites against the Dolphins. The over/under is 45.

You can get your local CBS network's NFL games via Paramount Plus, if you want.

The NFL game broadcast rights have stayed similar season over season. CBS gets AFC games on Sunday afternoons, FOX has the NFC games, NBC has Sunday Night Football and some Thursday night football, while ESPN has Monday Night Football. Amazon Prime Video has some Thursday Night Football games, while the NFL Network will continue to offer a bunch of games throughout the year. 

So, that makes it really easy to recommend where cord-cutters should turn to watch the NFL season: Fubo TV. Built for all things sports, Fubo has all three of those local broadcasters, plus ESPN and NFL Network. That's why it's one of the best streaming services.

Sling TV doesn't have CBS (not without AirTV at least), so while that's one of our favorite services, it's not ideal for football fans.
