Raiders vs. Dolphins Score Update: Dolphins Break Open 34-0 Lead Heading Into Fourth Quarter

The Oakland Raiders came into the third quarter already with a 13 point defecit, in need of getting a quick score to get back into the game. Instead, the Miami Dolphins added another touchdown just minutes into the quarter, helping extend the Dolphins lead 34-0 at Sun Life Stadium. 

Miami's Clyde Gates took the second half kickoff 77 yards down to the Oakland 25, setting up two Reggie Bush rushes and an eventual one yard touchdown scamper by the bruising back. The Dolphins would get the ball back a few minutes later, and drive for seven and a half minutes on 13 plays, leading to a 6 yard Matt Moore touchdown run to make it 27-0. Reggie Bush has 19 carries for 99 yards. 

As for the Raiders offense, well, let's just say it's been a bit of a struggle, as Carson Palmer has been erratic all day, finally throwing a pick six to Kevin Burnett for a 34 yard touchdown return with about five minutes left in the third to make it 34-0. Palmer is 11/28 for 120, along with the touchdown for the wrong team. Louis Murphy is the team's leading rusher with 16 yards, though Michael Bush has seven rushes for 10 yards.
