On the Raiders’ end it was Marshawn Lynch, stepping back on the field since his one-game suspension, who had 14 carries for 57 yards, scoring two touchdowns in the evening while quarterback Derek Carr cracked 300 passing yards, averaging 10 yards on each attempt, marking one of his more consistent performances in a wavering stream of showings that vary by the week.
On the Dolphins’ end, quarterback Jay Cutler threw for the three touchdown passes that would keep Miami on the board all night. Running back Kenyan Drake put up 69 yards on 9 carries but managed to lose a key fumble while Damien Williams managed to catch every pass that came his way, scoring 47 yards and a touchdown. But ultimately, Miami’s offense couldn’t hold up.
Next up, the Raiders will face off with the New England Patriots on November 9th while Dolphins go up against the Carolina Panthers on the next bout of Monday Night Football on November 13th.
I don't want to go back in time here but if Jay had an offensive line the Dolphins would probably be undefeated— Big Cat (@BarstoolBigCat) November 6, 2017

I dont wanna hear ANY Dolphins fan complain about the referees. Dolphins beat themselves with penalties.— Mike Hernandez (@FtballMikeHern) November 6, 2017
I really trusted the dolphins.— Big Baller Kuz (@UntilNextYear_) November 6, 2017
"The ref made the call so it is what it is," Reshad Jones said of the final penalty that gave Oakland the deciding score.— Omar Kelly (@OmarKelly) November 6, 2017
Oakland should get a taunting penalty for using Amari Cooper on the hands team.— scott pianowski (@scott_pianowski) November 6, 2017
Amari Cooper, on the hands team, secures the win for the #Raiders after the on-side kick. Oh, the irony.— Mike Villa Jr (@mikie_v) November 6, 2017
Amari Cooper can only catch the ball when it doesn't count for fantasy points.— Peter Jennings (@CSURAM88) November 6, 2017
Pretty cool that the Raiders apparently unaware Jay Cutler playing with two broken ribs. No pressure. No blitzes.— Armando Salguero (@ArmandoSalguero) November 6, 2017
