DOL­PHINS, 21-20

WHO WILL WIN AND WHY

USA TODAY Sports Weekly - - LEADING OFF -

Con­sen­sus line: Raiders by 21⁄ 2 Pre­dic­tion: The reg­u­lar-sea­son se­ries is tied 16-16-1. Oak­land dom­i­nated in the be­gin­ning af­ter the Dol­phins en­tered the AFL in 1966, but the Dol­phins have won five in a row and 11 of the last 12 dat­ing to 1997. Mi­ami has won the last four by a com­bined score of 140-58 with two of the games in Mi­ami, one in Oak- land and one in London. This is a tough call be­cause it’s two very in­con­sis­tent teams. The Raiders lost to Washington in Week 3 to drop their Sun­day night record to 18-19; the Dol­phins are 19-8 on Sun­day night, and this is their sec­ond of three prime-time games in a row. The Dol­phins will make up for their Thurs­day night stinker at Bal­ti­more.
