End 1st qtr: Dolphins 10, Raiders 7

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Sunday, November 28th, 2010 at 1:37 pm in Oakland Raiders.

First-quarter notebook:

– Good start on Jacoby Ford kickoff return, then it was all Dolphins and quarterback Chad Henne.

– Davone Bess burns Stanford Routt on third-and-10 for 23-yard gain as Dolphins got out poor field position at their own 10 on last possession of first quarter.

As the quarter ended, Miami was past midfield after runs by Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown.

– Darren McFadden is dumped for a pair of 3-yard losses to wreck a drive that started with a 29-yard Gradkowski to Murphy hookup.

Back to Pittsburgh game, that’s six carries on his last 13 attempts.

– Miami moved 65 yards on eight plays in its second possession for a touchdown, with the score coming on a 30-yard pass to Patrick Cobbs against a trailing Michael Huff. Miami getting first downs, mixing in wildcat, Raiders defense on the defensive.

— Gradkowski can’t do anything with third-and-15 on first series, a 6-yard pass to McFadden on third down. McFadden dumped by Cameron Walke on second-and-8. Ford gets a 5-yard false start.

— Dan Carpenter’s 49-yard field goal gave the Dolphins points out of their first possession, getting 27 of their 29 yards on the drive on a single play _ Henne’s completion to Brian Hartline on a back shoulder throw against Nnamdi Asomugha.

    The running game has died down because teams don’t respect our QBs or WRs.

    No disrespect taken. My husband has cancer and I was out of the loop for awhile.

    FORD!!!!!! Damn this little guy is becoming one of my favorites! That little fker is fast! Ford > Chevy!

  • OAKlifer

    TDDDD RAIDDDDUUUUUUHSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!

  • zopi

    Fantastic catch!
    Maybe the Raiders do have a play-maker.

  • 89052RAIDER

    ford is special

  • Thec07

    cooper carlise needs to get injuried also…

  • Just Fire Baby

    Campbell would have fell down in that rush and given up.

  • RaidingTexas

    I really like Ford.

  • RaidersMom

    Excuse me AB Paine?

  • http://oaklandtribune.com r8dr4lfe21

    He is a pocket big man!
    Dude plays with heart and want to!

  • RaidingTexas

    Ford just needs a more consistent QB and he can become a star in this league.

  • Thec07

    Like I told you guys when he was drafted JFORD…Rookie of the NATIN….

  • YoungAmerican

    Amazing play by Ford.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Jacoby Ford is already infinitely times better than DHB

  • Born with a Patch

    Ford is the new RUDY!!! Napoleon syndrome can take you a long way!!! And i better not hear anybody give that credit to Bruce, the pass wasn’t very good.

  • mikedlopes

    Need this guy for my fantasy team.

  • RaidingTexas

    Actually, I thought I saw RaiderMom here last week. Am I wrong?

  • Ars3nic3

    Jacoby Sleeper pick of the draft what a B.A.

  • ArmChair GM

    Jacoby Ford for President in 2012!

  • 504 Raider

    There is the difference between Bruce and Jason. Bruce stood in there and delivered the ball knowing he was about to get killed. Jason would have took a seat by that pigeon.

  • mikedlopes

    DHB and Murphy getting showed up by this Ford guy

    (BTW, you compared him to Darren Sproles, you short-changed him lol!!!)

  • 89052RAIDER

    DHB needs to stay on the bench

  • http://no_knuckleheads! 909RaiderLifer

    J Ford has earned a pay raise…

  • lefty12

    Most of you should quit worrying about who makes plays and root for the whole damn team.

    —————–

    No disagreement on that one.

  • DT42

    now that Ford is establishing himself as the deep threat, its time for DHB to move to the slot. Give him some short and mid range catches and let him use his speed that way.

  • Pretty Rick

    Bruce appeared to overthrow that pass,,Jacoby Ford makes a great play to take it to the house. Great play by both of them,,Bruce taking some hard hits though.
