Dolphins Vs. Raiders Score Update: Miami Leads Oakland 13-0 At Half

The Miami Dolphins, looking to rebound from their last second loss in Dallas on Thanksgiving, lead the Oakland Raiders 13-0 at halftime on Sunday. Miami's defense has showed up to play at Sun Life Stadium, putting heavy pressure on Raiders' quarterback Carson Palmer. Palmer and Raiders traveled across the country looking to extend a three game winning streak, and stay in control in the AFC West.

Miami's Matt Moore found Davone Bess for a twelve yard touchdown to extend the lead to 13. The Fins have struggled to punch it in for six once they get in the red zone, so the Bess touchdown was a huge boost after Miami had to settle for two Dan Carpenter field goals in the first quarter. Reggie Bush had perhaps his best half of the season so far, carrying the ball 11 times for 80 plus yards.
