I'm going Raiders 21, Dolphins 16, because we are still waiting for the Dolphins offense to show up. The Dolphins do miss Fitzpatrick's ability to stand in the trenches with it all falling apart and making something out of nothing with a heave of the ball (and it did go the other way, too, with him). That's the experience that Brisset should have at this point.

DOLPHINS (1-1) at RAIDERS (2-0)

Line: LV by 4.
Cote’s pick: LV 23-20.
TV: 4:05 p.m., CBS.

Tua Tagovailoa is out while his ribs heal, so Jacoby Brissett starts for now, and it isn’t a big deal for the Dolphins. Why it isn’t says less about Brissett being a solid, experienced backup as it says about the proverbial jury still being out on whether Miami did right or blew it by drafting Tagovailoa. Vegas QB Derek Carr (ankle) also was nicked up but should play, but Fins would catch a big break if legit-iffy RB Josh Jacobs (turf toe) sits out again. Carr is off to a great starts (leads NFL in passing yards) but the 2-0 flatters the Raiders a bit. Miami got embarrassed 35-0 at home by Bills last week but are on a 6-2 run on the road and due a rebound effort. Prideful Fins vs. Raiders due a stumble puts an outright upset in play. And Miami has won seven of past eight on road in this series. I haven’t seen enough offense from Miami to go all in on the upset, but this one feels like a field goal’s difference and the consolation of a road cover.

I think Miami has a better chance than we expect this week. They are coming off humiliation while the Raiders are still euphoric over two unexpected wins. This is the type of game where I can see Oakland coming out flat and Miami capitalizing on a few turnovers.

Say what you want but Flores' teams have bounced back from early embarrassment the last two years.

I expect some gimmicky stuff to work for points and Miami's defense to hold the fort. I'm feeling either victory or incredibly close loss.

Miami has beaten the Raiders worse than any other franchise since 08. Not like that history will matter much on Sunday but it’s still fun to bring up. Jammer made good points, it’d be funny to see a hurting team like Miami steal their thunder this early considering circumstance.

Xavien Howard pick six late in the game seals the win.
