Fourth quarter review: Dolphins 35, Raiders 13

By Steve Corkran
Sunday, September 16th, 2012 at 1:09 pm in Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders cut the lead to 21-13 with another Janikowski field goal. From there, they turned over things to a defense that was wearing down in the high heat and humidity.
The Dolphins promptly marched 80 yards in eight plays for a back-breaking touchdown, with rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill completing for passes along the way with relative ease.
The final completion for Tannehill came on a pass over the middle to tight end Anthony Fasano, with middle linebacker Rolando McClain scurrying to get into position to make the play.
Fasano slammed on the brakes, made a cut and dived into the end zone for a 28-13 lead.
The Raiders went three-and-out on their next possession, leaving the Dolphins in position to run the ball and milk the clock.
The Raiders return to Oakland 0-2 and facing the daunting prospect of finding a way to right the ship with games against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Denver Broncos and Atlanta Falcons on the horizon.
The Raiders defense that looked so good against the Chargers struggled most of the game against the Dolphins, with Reggie Bush rushing for 172 yards and the Dolphins for 230 of their more than 250 by the time Lamar Miller upped the lead to 35-13 late in the game with a 15-yard touchdown run.
Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer countered with 373 yards passing on 24 of 48 passing, with one touchdown and one interception.

    “I’m very comfortable in this scheme,” McFadden said. “I just feel like we have to get going. You hit one or two runs here, 3-yard runs here, and eventually it’s going to start popping.”

    *************************

    So I guess you guys can stop talking for Darren McFadden.

    ……………………………………

    McFadden is lying.

    What is going to tell the press? That his coach is an idiot???

    I hope Allen and Knapp are in the office by 2:00am sharp Monday morning. They gotta get this right…they owe that to the Davis family and the dedicated fans.
    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    Those MF’s and the rest of the staff should be at the Four Seasons Miami going over film and handing out action items for the coming week! Anything else would be unacceptable to an owner…I am looking at you Mark!

  • RaiderDanny

    Im a talk for DMAC, “STOP THROWING ME 2yd PASSES”!!

  • Chris in NY

    JFB,
    Those quotes mean nothing to me? You expect DMac to throw his coaches under the bus or say what he’s supposed to say and not burn any bridges.

  • Marks hair

    No pass rush.. not this yr.. no fun. Only stupid

  • realtruraider

    Again, where was the pass rush? Sure the DB’s are gonna get torched when you have all day to throw.

    ——————————————————-

    I didn’t get to watch most of the 2nd half, but there seemed to be plenty of pass rush in the 1st half. Maybe the Bush runs slowed down the rush or something, I don’t know it sounds like the whole damn defense and offense just gave up after that Bush run.

    He played in the ZBS at Arkansas, and now 3 of his 5 NFL seasons.

    LOL at him “lying”.

  • The Oracle

    and I dont wanna hear any “we had to go to east coast”BS man…tell that to the AZ Cardinals who went into NE and shut them down.

  • http://InsidetheOaklandRaiders Goldie7

    Knapp needs to talk to the media….so that we can read his reactions to see if he’s sincere.

    Man I wish we could have got Jim harbaugh when we had a chance

    WOW, some of the bloggers that said the McKenzie hire was brilliant are now calling for his head? Really?

    =================================================

    Exactly, because firing the GM after two games screams “stability.”

    ….and getting shellacked by what was supposed to be the worst team in the AFC 35-13 “screams” success.

  • RaiderDanny

    Yo Goldie, check out some of my earlier posts around 860 and above! Were on the same page! My brother from another mother!

    lol ok Danny.

    The Raiders are converting 22% of 3rd downs. 31st in the NFL

  • http://www.Raiders.com KoolKell

    They can’t convert 3rd downs, and can’t score in the Red Zone.

    With all being said…I’m just angry right now. I don’t know what’s gonna happen to my Raiders next. I just don’t know what to think. Will we go without a win? I just want the Raiders to be dominate again. Then thay bring P. Manning over to our division. Whew…when will things go in the Raiders favor?

    Please.

    Stop the hyper ventilation and take a pill.

    If they crash and burn this season will you go out and hang yourself?

    I hope not.

    Don’t be stupid…Old Man. Why would I hang myself over football? Get real dude! There are millions of dedicated Raiders that feel the way I do and you choose me to reply to. Get over it Len! The Raiders suck, stink and suck some more but I’m still cheering for them.

  • The Oracle

    Of our 16 first downs, 14 were passing. Pathetic.

    We were 1-12 on third down conversions. Pathetic.

    We had about 400 yards of total offense but gave up 452…

  • The Oracle

    5 penalties for 42 yards today, not bad. Any team can overcome that.

  • The Oracle

    Fellas, the sun will rise tomorrow. Peace.

  • RaiderReggie

    Some people talking about Carson Palmer throwing for 375 yards. All he is doing is padding his stats with these dink and dunk passes. How about throwing for some touchdowns. I would rather see him throw for 175 yards as long as he can throw for 3 touchdowns.
