The Miami Dolphins will play host to the Las Vegas Raiders this Saturday in preseason game #2. Here are three things to watch for in that contest.
We are still over three weeks away from the official start of the season for the Miami Dolphins, but training camp and the preseason are in full swing.

There were things to love and things to hate about the team’s performance in preseason Week 1 against the Buccaneers. Miami was able to edge out a two-point victory thanks to a missed field goal by Tampa Bay as time expired, but it wasn’t pretty. The offensive line had familiar woes, and Kyle Trask and Blaine Gabbert combined to throw for over 300 yards against Miami’s defensive backs.
