It appears Derek Carr will play Saturday against the Miami Dolphins, despite leaving the Raiders' Week 15 loss with a groin injury. Luckily for Las Vegas, they now know they have a solid backup option in Marcus Mariota. 

The bigger question is the defense

Will the Raiders be able to stop Tua Tagovailoa and the Dolphins? This could be a tough one for Jon Gruden's squad.
