Miami is looking for its first offensive touchdown of the season.

A couple of teams with disappointing openers will square off in Miami on Sunday as the Dolphins host the Oakland Raiders.

Miami fell to the Houston Texans, 30-10, in Week 1. In the game, the Dolphins failed to score an offensive touchdown and turned the ball over four times.

Luckily for the Dolphins, their opponent wasn't too impressive either, as the Raiders lost to the San Diego Chargers at home, 22-14. The Raiders, however, did show off a stellar run defense that held the Chargers to 32 yards on 20 carries.

Most of the attention, though, will be on Ryan Tannehill, who struggled throughout the team's Week 1 loss. The rookie quarterback finished with 219 yards passing and three interceptions.

The Oakland defense did a decent job containing Philip Rivers last week. He finished with 231 yards and a touchdown.
