The Raiders held on to defeat the Dolphins 27-24 in Miami on Sunday night.

Things slowing down for Garoppolo: Jimmy Garoppolo watched the 49ers’ loss from the sideline, with C.J. Beathard somehow surviving a game in which he was sacked five times and hit on 16 occasions. Asked about his first week as a Niner and his adjustment to the playbook, Garoppolo said: “It was a bit of a whirlwind, but it’s starting to slow down, though.” Given the 49ers’ porous offensive line, Kyle Shanahan may be hesitant to put Garoppolo in regardless of how quickly he adapts.
The Seahawks got shocked by the other team from Washington, as Seattle’s one-dimensional offensive ways caught up to it a bit. On this short week, though, the Seahawks face a secondary that can be shredded. Expect them to shut down Adrian Peterson and rattle Drew Stanton while Russell Wilson rebounds with more big plays and less mistakes.
Texans receiver Will Fuller injured his ribs in Sunday’s 33-7 loss to the Rams.
