Las Vegas Raiders have rumbled to a 2-0 start, upsetting Baltimore Ravens (33-27) in an OT thriller and putting away Pittsburgh Steelers (26-17) on the road. 

Derek Carr has already thrown for four touchdowns and over 800 yards. But the Raiders’ defence has been the real surprise-packet element of their unexpectedly strong showing in the opening fortnight.

Miami Dolphins are 1-1 after a 17-16 eclipse of the Patriots and a jarring 35-0 loss to the Bills. The Bills’ pass rush decimated Tua Tagaovailoa before his injury-enforced exit and he’s out this week with fractured ribs. That leaves Jacoby Brissett to steer the under-pressure Miami offence.

The Dolphins won a Las Vegas nail-biter 26-25 last season. But the rivals are trending in opposite directions so far in 2021.

Verdict

Most expect the Raiders’ high level to subside eventually, but they should have too much on both sides of the ball for a Dolphins side down on troops and confidence.
