Seth Walder ESPN Analytics 

Xavien Howard's interception off Derek Carr in the fourth quarter increased the Dolphins' chance to win by 40% and was the biggest win probability swing play in the 1 p.m. window today.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

All summer the Dolphins swore they weren't the same old Dolphins and to not discount them because of their lack of stars. Well, it's still early but at 3-0 headed into Foxboro leading the AFC East maybe they were on to something.

Bobby McCain through a busted lip on Xavien Howard and his 2 INTs: "He's one of the best cornerbacks in the league. We been telling people that. We been telling people that for a year. Now they know. He locked down Amari. The league knows now."

Trick plays help unbeaten Dolphins beat Raiders 28-20

Receiver Albert Wilson threw a 52-yard touchdown pass to put the Miami Dolphins ahead midway through the fourth quarter, and then turned a short reception into a 74-yard score that sealed a 28-20 victory over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.

Dolphins score on 52-yard trick play (0:31)
Dolphins' Howard picks off Carr late in 4th quarter (0:21)
Grant scores TD on end around (0:24)
Dolphins' Spence ejected in 2nd quarter (0:36)

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

Dolphins have been outplayed in first half, but their red zone defense (10 points in 3 trips) has kept them within striking distance. It's 10-7 Raiders at halftime. Miami is being outgained 228 yards (on 34 plays) to 126 yards (on 22!! plays). Penalties (5 for 46 yards) and a lack of a running game (8 carries for 14!! yards) have hurt the Dolphins.

Tannehill hits Stills on 34-yard TD (0:28)

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

Best throw of the year for Ryan Tannehill thus far. Tannehill stuck in the pocket and hits Kenny Stills perfectly on a corner route for a TD in the back of the endzone.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

Dolphins DL William Hayes injured his right knee while making a sack on Derek Carr. He walked slowly back to the locker room with a significant limp and is questionable to return.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

Dolphins have missed Reshad Jones on their first two defensive drives. His loss has moved Minkah Fitzpatrick and Bobby McCain into positions they haven't played much this regular season. Raiders attacking Dolphins secondary. Jordy Nelson has 3 catches for 139 yards, TD so far.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

It's 90 degrees here in Miami Gardens. West Coast Raiders traveling cross country for early, hot game typically doesn't bode well. We will see how they respond. Dolphins have to take advantage.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

Reshad Jones (shoulder) is inactive. Minkah Fitzpatrick makes his first career start at safety for Jones. Fitzpatrick had been playing slot CB in first two weeks, so here is where his versatility shines. DeVante Parker is active and will make his season debut. Other Dolphins inactives: Luke Falk, David Fales, Tanner McEvoy, Cordrea Tankersley, Kalen Ballage, Zach Sterup.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

It'll be a gametime decision on whether Reshad Jones (shoulder) plays Sunday vs. Raiders. But Adam Gase sounded optimistic and mentioned his improvement through the week "gives us a good chance." DeVante Parker is good to go health-wise. Coaches' decision on whether he will be active, but the expectation is he will make his season debut Sunday.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

Reshad Jones (shoulder) back at practice and participating in individual drills. He'll likely be limited today, but this is a positive step toward playing Sunday vs. Raiders

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

Minkah Fitzpatrick discusses some of the social media backlash he and his mom got over his "FitzMagic" trademark: "I kind of laugh at it and use it as fuel. They want me to earn my nickname? That's what I'm going to do. I've been playing pretty well for a rookie my first two games."

Minkah: Bucs QB can have 'FitzMagic' if wanted

Minkah Fitzpatrick expressed anger with social media users who attacked him and his family over his "FitzMagic" trademark application, and offered the nickname to Buccaneers QB Ryan Fitzpatrick if it came to that.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

Reshad Jones has a shoulder injury, not the one he had surgery on before, he's "day-to-day" but it's improving and not considered serious. Adam Gase said they are hoping to have him for Sunday vs. Raiders.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

Adam Gase brought the pads out to test his WRs, TEs and RBs getting off press coverage. Some like Kenyan Drake taking it easy on coach. Others like Kalen Ballage are not.
