"We made some big plays when it mattered", Tannehill said.
The Dolphins, alone atop the AFC East for the second consecutive week, maintain they have plenty of swag this year.
On the road, playing in the humidity and with tip-off in the eastern timezone, an Oakland Raiders victory over the Miami Dolphins would not be easy, but a win was necessary to generate some much-needed positivity early into the season. Wilson and Grant ran side by side in the clear for the final 30 yards and exchanged a gleeful high five approaching the end zone.
Veteran wide receiver Jordy Nelson annihilated Dolphins defenders in the first quarter, going off for three catches for 139 yards and a score. They got the go-ahead score by going deep in the playbook.
"We're on the right track", Tannehill said.

Trickery gave the Dolphins their first lead in the fourth quarter.
Dolphins coach Adam Gase said he stole the trick play from former coach Mike Martz. Here are three things we learned from Sunday's end result. They are limiting opponents to only 17.3 points per game while also boasting a seventh-ranked run defense that allows just 89.0 rushing yards per contest. S Reshad Jones was inactive because of a shoulder injury. Grant had 70 yards and two scores on two receptions.
Miami defensive tackle Akeem Spence was ejected in the second quarter for ripping off guard Kelechi Osemele's helmet. The Raiders responded with a long drive, ending in a field goal and a 10-7 lead.
Dolphins: DE William Hayes (right knee) was hurt when he sacked Carr and missed the second half. TE A.J. Derby (foot) also sat out the second half.
Raiders: T Donald Penn (concussion) and S Karl Joseph (lower leg) sat out the second half. All three Dolphins have staged similar protests before their team's other games this season. They are nothing less than football plays. The move baffled Raiders players and fans alike, and it's reasonable to assume Cube is one of the skeptics.
