The Las Vegas Raiders move to 3-0 for the first time since the 2002 season after beating the Miami Dolphins 31-28 in overtime.
The Las Vegas Raiders do not make things easy on themselves. Mistakes and questionable play-calling caused the Raiders to fall down 14-0 early in the first quarter, before settling down and scoring the next 25 consecutive points.
Derek Carr shined once again despite his pick-six in the first quarter, throwing for 386 yards and two touchdowns, one to Alec Ingold, and another to Hunter Renfrow. The defense played their hearts out for most of this game, but non-holding calls and a couple of big penalties in the fourth quarter gave the Dolphins extra possessions making this game a lot closer than it needed to be.
For the second straight home game, the Raiders had to go to overtime to win, and in both games, the Raiders fell down 14-0 to start the game. However, comebacks are nothing new to Carr, as this was the 26th game-winning drive in his career. There were many positives and many negatives to take away from this game, and we will dig into it a little bit and find out three things we learned in the Raiders win against the Miami Dolphins.
