For the first time since Week 4 of last season, Dolphins running back Lamar Miller scored a rushing touchdown. In fact, he got in the end zone twice in a convincing 38-14 victory over the Raiders at Wembley Stadium in London.
Miller got off to a fast start, ripping a 21-yard run on his first touch of the night. On a fourth and inches, Miller gashed Oakland's line for an 8-yard score in the second quarter. He finished the first half with 38 yards and a touchdown on six carries.
In the second half, Miller fumble just inches shy before crossing the end zone. Luckily, the Dolphins picked off Derek Carr three plays later and Miller got redemption, scoring from 1-yard out in the third quarter for his first multi-touchdown performance of his career.
Miller took 12 handoffs for 64 yards and two touchdowns, averaging 5.3 yards per carry. He caught all two of his targets for three yards. He has 277 yards on the ground through four games.
The Dolphins have a bye next week before hosting the Packers in Week 6.
