Ryan Tannehill threw for 278 yards and two touchdowns Sunday, leading the Miami Dolphins to a 38-14 victory over the Oakland Raiders.
Tannehill, who was in the middle of a storm all week because his coach declined to confirm him as this week's starter, took advantage of a depleted Oakland defense to snap a two-game losing streak for the Dolphins (2-2).
The Raiders (0-4) scored on their opening drive but struggled after that. And starting quarterback Derek Carr was injured in the third quarter, replaced by third-stringer Matt McGloin.
Tannehill threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Mike Wallace and an 18-yarder to Dion Sims. Lamar Miller rushed for two more TDs, and cornerback Cortland Finnegan ran back a fumble 50 yards for another.
