The Dolphins have struggled to put up points all season. Adding Jay Cutler into the mix has not been great for the Dolphins’ passing attack. Despite having three excellent receivers in Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills, finding pay dirt has been rather difficult for the Dolphins.
One of the few players that has done well on the defensive side of the ball for the Raiders this season has been slot cornerback T.J. Carrie. While the Raiders have struggled mightily out on the edge, Carrie has provided some degree of comfort on the inside.
Add in that Landry and any number of Dolphins skill position players could be on the trading block, we may not expect the Dolphins’ passing game to flourish despite having 10 days to get ready for the Raiders. We saw first hand what it looks like when a team doesn’t prepare appropriately with a mini bye.
Oakland is still without an interception as a team this year. Yes, the Raiders have made it to Week 9 without record a single pick as a football team. With the way that the Dolphins are playing on offense, maybe Carrie will be the guy that picks off an errant nonchalant throw from Cutler on Sunday night?
