Raiders Vs. Dolphins Final Score: Miami Has Big Second Half To Get Past Oakland

The Miami Dolphins had a big second half, as they defeated the Oakland Raiders, 35-13, and outscored Oakland 28-3 in the third and fourth quarters. The running game led the Dolphins to victory, as they rushed for 259 yards and four touchdowns.

The running dominance started in the third quarter, when running back Reggie Bush rushed for 95 yards and had a pair of touchdowns. Then, in the fourth quarter, Ryan Tannehill had his first touchdown of the game on a 14-yard touchdown pass to Anthony Fasano and backup running back Lamar Miller scored on a 15-yard run to put the game away.

The Dolphins defense completely shut down the Raiders offense by holding them to just three second half points, and held running back Darren McFadden to just 22 yards.

For those who had Bush on their fantasy football team, they were heavily rewarded as he had 172 rushing yards and two touchdowns, plus he also caught three passes for 25 yards.

The Dolphins easily covered the three-point spread in this game, and it all started with their second half dominance.

The Dolphins will host the New York Jets next week.
