Bair's key matchups: Dolphins vs. Raiders
Dolphins vs. Raiders
The Oakland Raiders (0-3) are in London for a Week 4 matchup against quarterback Ryan Tannehill and the Miami Dolphins (1-2). Let's countdown the top-three matchups...
Cameron Wake vs. Khalif Barnes
Barnes hasn’t allowed a sack this season. His man has only hit the quarterback three times. He’s primarily charged with slowing Wake, a top-flight pass rusher who can wreak havoc, with 53.5 sacks in five-plus seasons. He’s still got it at age 32, with two sacks, four QB hits, eight hurries and two forced fumbles already this season.
Branden Albert vs. Khalil Mack
Mack plays better each week, and has shown the speed, power and agility to wreak havoc on an opponent. Albert has had an excellent start to the year, with three solid outings. Mack will move around some and play on both sides of the line to add unpredictability to the Raiders pass rush.
Jared Odrick vs. Maurice Jones-Drew
Jones-Drew is itching to return, especially after averaging just 1.8 yards per carry in his only game of the season. Odrick has been a strong part of the Dolphins' front seven, which will be collectively responsible for stopping Jones-Drew. The Raiders have struggled to reach the defense’s second level, something Odrick wants to prevent with the Raiders.
