The Oakland Raiders are looking for win number one. Right now, the Jon Gruden rehire is going through a rough patch. Look for the team to play hard in Miami.
The Miami Dolphins are one of the surprise teams in the NFL through week two. Miami has won two straight, beating the Titans and recently the Jets, 20-12 in New York.
The Oakland Raiders are in a bad way. The team is struggling right now. Especially at quarterback. Derek Carr has struggled this season. He has thrown just one touchdown through the first three weeks of the season, but has three picks on the year.
If Oakland is going to be competitive and contend for a playoff spot, it starts with Carr. Last week Carr played well in Denver despite the loss. He was 29 of 32 for 288 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions. If Carr can stretch the ball down the field, the Raiders will score more points.
This week, Oakland is going to need a good game from Marshawn Lynch. Lynch had 18 carries for 65 yards and one touchdown last week at Denver.
If Lynch is able to get things going with Carr offensively, look for the Raiders defense to step in and try to limit the Dolphins offensively. Oakland allowed 385 total yards against a bad Denver offense last week.
The Miami Dolphins are 2-0 to start the season. They got the best of the Jets in last weekend’s AFC East division game. The Dolphins had 257 yards of total offense, but still managed to get things done on the road.
Miami is 2-0 because they have been smart with the football, and have made good decisions in protecting the ball this season. Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill passed for 168 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the 20-12 win over New York.
If the Dolphins are going to get it done against the Raiders, look for Tannehill to play an excellent game manager, especially at home. If he is able to protect the football and made good throws, the Dolphins will be successful.
Defensively, the Dolphins are one of the more talented teams in the NFL this season. They held highly touted rookie quarterback Sam Darnold to 25 of 41 passing for 334 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.

NFL Free Week 3 Score Prediction: Oakland 10 – Miami 21
Expect the Oakland offense to look better this week, but still unable to make big plays down field. The Dolphins will be bland offensively with Tannehill managing the game but still get the win. Take the Dolphins.
