The red-hot Oakland Raiders (7-4) are preparing to go across the country to face the Miami Dolphins (3-8). Many would like to call this a trap-game for the Raiders, but there is no such thing in December.
That's especially the case when the Raiders have the Denver Broncos just one game back in the AFC West. Then there's the fact that the two teams played last year and it was the Dolphins that came out victorious.
The Raiders surely won't forget the 33-17 behind-kicking they took from the Dolphins last year. The revenge factor in the game will be at Level 10 for this young group.
The matchups between the two teams are not identical to last year's, as the Raiders have injuries and the Dolphins lost a player or two.
