Raiders Vs. Dolphins Was A Tale Of 2 Halves

It took some time for Miami's offense to wake up on Sunday, but once it finally got rolling, the Dolphins completely took over the game. Their 35-13 win over the Oakland Raiders was a tale of two halves, as SB Nation's The Phinsider pointed out:

While the first half saw both teams start slowly, with both teams on pace to break punting records, the Dolphins' 28 point explosion in the second half took care of any doubt about the outcome.

After a tough debut, rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill was much improved in Week 2. He completed 18 of 30 passes for one touchdown and did not throw an interception. And Reggie Bush had a huge game, piling up 172 yards on 26 carries. The Dolphins finished the game with 452 yards of total offense.

Raiders Vs. Dolphins: Ryan Tannehill, Miami Look For Improvement In Week 2

There are plenty of storylines to watch this Sunday when the Miami Dolphins take on the Oakland Raiders. The Dolphins have a lot that needs improvement following their Week 1 loss in Houston, including the play of rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Tannehill threw three interceptions against the Texans, and two of those came off of passes tipped at the line of scrimmage. Tannehill tends to hold the ball low while working through his progressions, which can get him into trouble. He's been working on the tipped ball problem this week.

Running back Reggie Bush could help the team's offense bounce back with a strong effort in support of Tannehill, who is going to continue going through rookie growing pains. Bush finished the Texans game with 69 yards rushing.

Kickoff of Sunday's game is set for 1 p.m. ET on CBS.
