Watch a Raiders vs Dolphins live stream
Looking for a free Raiders vs Dolphins live stream? Today's game is free-to-air on 7Mate and 7Plus in Australia. In the US, it's being shown on CBS and Paramount Plus (7-day free trial), in Canada it's on DAZN and TSN, and in the UK it's only on NFL Game Pass, but remember that you can watch on your usual service with a VPN when abroad too. Full details below.
Raiders vs Dolphins preview
The Raiders are 2-0 under interim coach Antonio Pierce, but the bedding-in period ends today. They've managed to take care of business against two deeply flawed opponents, but the Dolphins are several rungs up the pecking order. They're also coming off a bye week, and have home-field advantage at Hard Rock Stadium.
Raiders inactives: QB Brian Hoyer, LB Jaylon Smith, LB Amari Burney, C Hroniss Grasu, T Kolton Miller, DT Byron Young, DT Nesta Jade Silvera
Dolphins inactives: WR Braxton Berrios, RB Jeff Wilson, Jr., OL Robert Jones, OL Robert Hunt, TE Durham Smythe, WR Chase Claypool
Much was being made of Miami's ongoing struggles against any team with a winning record even before the no-show against Kansas City a fortnight ago, but whether they turn out to be paper tigers or not, they've been utterly dominant against middling and lower-tier opposition.
The Raiders' back-to-back victories have taken them to 5-5 for the season, which pushes them above both the Chargers and the Broncos in the AFC West, although that probably says more about the division as a whole than Las Vegas.
Still, they've got a bit of momentum now and the majority of fans are finding it easier to get behind rookie 4th-round pick Aidan O'Connell than Jimmy Garoppolo, who'd been stinking the place out under Josh McDaniels. Josh Jacobs has certainly done his bit to ease the load on O'Connell, racking up at least 25 carries in each of the past two games.
Glow-up or not though, the Raiders are exactly the sort of outfit that Tua Tagovailoa and Tyreek Hill have been eating for breakfast, and having last tasted victory three weeks ago, they're now starving. Follow our guide on how to watch Raiders vs Dolphins wherever you are and live stream NFL games all season.
