On this day after the Dolphins 33-17 win over the Raiders, coach Tony Sparano met with the media to continue to break down the game. As well as the Dolphins ran the ball yesterday (49 carries, 186 yards), Sparano said that the team only ran about five different rushing plays against the Raiders. Though they mixed up the formations, he said that the Oakland linebackers knew what was coming but the blocking by guys like Lousaka Polite and Lex Hilliard really freed up the running game.
The Dolphins and Raiders are both 5-5 and looking to put together a string of victories that will propel them towards postseason play. Oakland is looking to win their third straight at home since 2003, while the Dolphins hope for their 5th straight victory at Oakland.
Jesse Agler joined me for Finsiders TV to talk about the two teams and how different their division battles look as they come in with identical records.
In his final chat with the media before Sunday’s game at Oakland, Dolphins coach Tony Sparano was asked about several injured players. WR Brandon Marshall was once again not at practice today, and Sparano said he has made a decision on whether or not he will travel with the team this afternoon as they head to the west coast. Meanwhile, QB Chad Pennington, who is on injured reserve, will not travel, which isn’t a huge surprise, but is nonetheless noteworthy because of his “coaching” abilities on the sideline.
