Limited Brandon Bolden Jersey , and as Albert Wilson and Jakeem Grant sprinted side by side in the clear the final 30 yards toward the end zone for a clinching touchdown, they didn't wait to celebrate.While still on the run, the two Miami receivers exchanged a gleeful high-five ."Just NASCAR on grass," Grant said.The Dolphins looked even faster than that.Wilson threw a 52-yard touchdown pass to put unbeaten Miami ahead midway through the fourth quarter, and then turned a short reception into a 74-yard score that sealed a 28-20 victory Sunday over winless Oakland.Miami coach Adam Gase used creative play-calling to overcome a wave of injuries and penalties, and a 17-minute deficit in time of possession. The Dolphins scored on a pair of shovel passes by Ryan Tannehill that each traveled less than a yard — one on the flip to Wilson, and an earlier similar pass that Grant caught before turning the corner for an 18-yard score."We made some big plays when it mattered," Tannehill said. "With the explosiveness we have, we just have to keep doing our job and not press."Thanks to all the flashy plays, the surprising Dolphins are 3-0 for only the third time since 1998, with an early season showdown at AFC East rival New England next."We're on the right track," Tannehill said. "Are we there yet? No. But the patterns we're establishing are going to take us there."The Raiders, led by first-year coach Jon Gruden James White Jersey , are 0-3 for the first time since 2014, when they started 0-10. They've blown a second-half lead in all three defeats.Oakland outgained the Dolphins, and Derek Carr threw for 345 yards . But Xavien Howard intercepted him twice deep in Miami territory, and the Dolphins mounted a first-half goal line stand to stay in the game."We got hurt on a trick play and didn't finish some drives in the red zone," Gruden said. "That's the story of the game."Trickery gave the Dolphins their first lead in the fourth quarter. Tannehill handed off to Frank Gore, who tossed the ball to Wilson on an end-around. Wilson — a quarterback in high school — then lobbed the first pass of his NFL career to a wide-open Grant, who outmaneuvered two Raiders to the end zone."I said he'd better catch it, and he'd better not get tackled," said Wilson, who became the fourth player with a TD pass and TD reception of at least 50 yards in a game. He joined Hall of Famer Jimmy Conzelman (1923), Tom Tracy (1960) and David Patten (2001).Grant said the Dolphins work on the play every day in practice.Following Howard's second interception , Wilson scooted around the end after taking Tannehill's short pitch and scored the clincher as he high-fived Grant."We've got guys who can do a lot of different things," Gase said. "They can throw it Authentic Stephen Gostkowski Jersey , they can run it."INJURY REPORTDolphins: DE William Hayes (right knee) was hurt when he sacked Carr and missed the second half. ... DE Andre Branch hurt his knee in the second half. ... TE A.J. Derby (foot) also sat out the second half. ... CB Bobby McCain was shaken up in the final minutes. ... LB Chase Allen suffered a foot injury in the first half. ... S Reshad Jones was inactive because of a shoulder injury.Raiders: T Donald Penn (concussion) and S Karl Joseph (lower leg) sat out the second half. ... WR Seth Roberts was among Oakland's inactives.JARRINGMiami's Kenny Stills took a big hit when he made a 34-yard touchdown reception in stride in the back of the end zone and slammed into the cushioned retaining wall.COSTLY FLAGSMiami defensive tackle Akeem Spence was ejected in the second quarter for ripping off guard Kelechi Osemele's helmet. Spence was penalized for unnecessary roughness, which negated a third-down sack by teammate Cameron Wake and led to an Oakland field goal.ANTHEMStills and Wilson kneeled during the national anthem, and defensive end Robert Quinn raised his right fist. All three Dolphins have staged similar protests before their team's other games this season.UP NEXTDolphins: Play next Sunday at New England, where they've lost nine games in a row.Raiders: Return home to play Cleveland next Sunday.Follow Steven Wine on Twitter: ://Steve_WinePatriots bring in four offensive players for free agency workouts The New England Patriots are always trying to keep their emergency lists fresh, regularly bringing in free agents for workouts. Over the last week, this led to the team signing defensive edge John Simon to their active roster and linebacker Calvin Munson to the practice squad. Whether the latest group of free agents to be worked out will join them on the Patriots’ payroll remains to be seen. Let’s take a look at them (via ESPN Boston’s Mike Reiss):WR Reggie DavisAfter going undrafted in 2017, Reggie Davis signed with Atlanta Falcons before ultimately joining the Cleveland Browns’ active roster for the first three weeks of the season – withoug appearing in a game, though. After getting his release, he re-joined Atlanta via its practice squad and later signed a futures contract with the team. The speedster, who has primarily been used as a slot receiver over the course of his career, failed to make the team again and was instead picked up by the Philadelphia Eagles’ practice squad. He was let go on September 20.WR Damoun PattersonDamoun Patterson also entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent. The Youngstown State product was signed by the Pittsburgh Steelers and had a solid 2018 preseason: he caught a team-high nine passes for 112 yards and a touchdown, with the majority of his production coming in week one. However, he still failed to make the team’s 53-man roster after a toe injury led the Steelers to release him with an injury designation. One week later Matthew Slater Jersey Salute to Service , he was let go off the injured reserve list and has been on the open market since.RB Brandon RadcliffFollowing a solid but unspectacular career at Louisville, Brandon Radcliff did not hear his name called on draft day. Instead, he joined the Indianapolis Colts as an undrafted free agent but was unable to carve out a role with the team. After a short stint with the Tennessee Titans, he joined the Miami Dolphins’ practice squad and signed a futures contract with the team after his rookie season. However, Radcliff failed to make the team’s roster this year and was let go during roster cuts.OT Toby WeathersbyA 15-game starter at LSU, Toby Weathersby also went unselected during this year’s draft. The 6’6, 310 lbs lineman later joined the Philadelphia Eagles but was later waived with an injury designation. After starting the regular season on injured reserve, Weathersby was released off the list again last week. A solid run blocker who struggled with injuries his entire career, the 22-year old is a candidate to also be used at the guard position.
