Raiders at Dolphins early prediction for 2023 NFL Week 11
The Raiders two-game win streak has vaulted them back into the playoff picture in the AFC, but this has the potential to be a tough game for the Silver and Black. Playing in Miami is never easy, and for a Raiders team with a rookie quarterback, head coach, and offensive coordinator, the Dolphins could end up coming close to covering the spread in this one.
Of course, the Raiders defense has been better than expected this season, and the Dolphins are not invincible, as they have taken their lumps this season as well. In the end, the Raiders keep it close for most of the game, but going East and playing in the 10AM PT window could be too much of a task against such a talented Miami team.
Final Score: Dolphins 27, Raiders 17
