The Miami Dolphins suffered their first loss in their last four games when they traveled to Dallas and lost on a last-second field goal. They showed toughness and confidence and proved to everyone that they belong at the top of the league.
They have had 10 days to prepare to host the Oakland Raiders, who are leading the AFC West but have the Broncos breathing down their necks. They will look to bring their potent rushing attack to Miami and inch closer to the playoffs for the first time since 2002.
Miami will have to come out the same way they have the last month if they expect to win. Matt Moore has been outstanding and will need to continue to play at a high level. Miami has a big chance to upset the Raiders and shake up the playoff picture.
