Half-Time Report: Miami Dolphins hold commanding Wembley lead over Oakland Raiders

The Miami Dolphins hold a commanding 24-7 lead over the Oakland Raiders in the NFL's showpiece fixture at Wembley Stadium in London.

The Miami Dolphins are currently holding an impressive 24-7 half-time lead over the Oakland Raiders in the NFL's showpiece fixture at Wembley Stadium in London this evening.

The Raiders made a rattling start to the encounter by pitching up just two yards short of the endzone from their first drive, with Derek Carr picking out Brian Leonhardt with a three-yarder, before Sebastian Janikowski kicked to make it 7-0.

Following eight plays, the Dolphins were presented with their first opportunity to score and they willingly obliged as Caleb Sturgis made an impressive 47-yard field goal to earn his side three points.

Ryan Tannehill pushed the Dolphins into a three-point lead when he picked out Mike Wallace from 13 yards, as Sturgis delivered from the spot to take the score to 10-7.

The lead was then extended in the second quarter thanks to some industrious play from Lamar Miller, who showed great ability to complete an eight-yard rush past the defense to make it 17-7.

Miami were not done yet despite playing away from home in colder climes, as they made it 24-7 when Tannehill produced an excellent 18-yard pass for Dion Sims to move into the endzone, leaving the Dolphins in a commanding position at the break in north London.
