Will Raiders rookie head coach Dennis Allen get his first victory this week?
Ron JonesCBS13/CW31 reporter and Raiders fan @RonJonesReports
I don't say this because I'm a Raiders fan, but I predict Dennis Allen will bounce back this week against the Dolphins.
First of all, the Raiders offense looked sharp in the 1st and 2nd quarters on Monday night. They can obviously move the ball, but where they struggled was during special teams.
After the Raiders lost their punt snapper to an injury, the game turned into a string of embarrassing comedy of errors.
I believe this week Allen will fix the special teams issues and the silver and black will shine again. He's already improved their penalty discipline.
As for the Dolphins, they're still trying to find their identity with a rookie quarterback. I predict Raiders win 26-14.

Yes, the Dolphins have a rookie quarterback who’s still trying to learn the offense.
Look for a poised Carson Palmer to lead the silver and black to a road win in Miami.
