Miami Dolphins @ Oakland Raiders - GiveMeSport reports live from Wembley

The National Football League is in town once again, with the Oakland Raiders hosting the Miami Dolphins in the latest instalment of the international series.

Def Leopard provided the pre-match entertainment, but it's down to the players to really put on a show under the arch in north west London.

It's the ninth NFL game at Wembley, Miami won the coin toss and deferred to the second-half, meaning it's the Raiders who will receive first in what is a partizan atmosphere.

We'll be posting live updates throughout, so stay tuned for the action as it happens...

LIVE score: Raiders 14, Dolphins 38 (4th Quarter)

Raiders 7, Dolphins 0 - First Quarter: 5 minute, 22 second drive

WHAT...A...START! The Raiders receive the kick-off and march down the field to score the opening touchdown in under six minutes.

Ten plays, 74 yards, easy! Derek Carr was four of five for 56 yards, with his first throw a 30-yard completion to James Jones. Darren McFadden picked up 18 yards on the ground, but it was Brian Leonhardt who reeled in the three-yard catch for the TD.

Raiders 7, Dolphins 3 - First Quarter: 3 minute, 13 second drive

The Dolphins strike back with a field goal. as Ryan Tannehill goes three for five for 26 yards in his opening drive. Lamar Miller picked up 21 yards in just two attempts, with one big run opening things up. Brian Hartline caught a would-be first and goal but was out of bounds, and Caleb Sturgis nailed it from 41 yards.

END OF FIRST QUARTER - Oakland Raiders 7, Miami Dolphins 3

The first quarter in the books and it finishes with the Dolphins on the drive after Oakland failed to make the most of their last outing with the ball. A beautiful punt pinned Miami inside their own ten, but Tannehill has put together a nice drive and they are 12 yards from the endzone at the start of the second.

Raiders 7, Dolphins 10 - Second Quarter: 3 minute, 46 second drive

Two plays later, and the Dolphins have their first TD thanks to Mike Wallace. The wide receiver had to fight for the extra yards but stretched over for a 13-yard completion from Tannehill. He's now nine of 11 for 112 yards, which included a 35-yarder to Hartline on this scoring drive.

Raiders 7, Dolphins 17 - Second Quarter: 3 minute, 35 second drive

The Dolphins strike again, this time on a fourth down run from Lamar Miller. Tannehill marches his side 63 yards down the field after stopping the raiders, completing three passes, although it was the run which caused the damage. Wallace did fumble after a run but Miami were able to recover and Miller went in from eight yards. He's now got 34 yards from five carries.

BIG PLAY ALERT - Raiders recover fumble

Oakland are stopped at the first time of asking on their drive, but a punt return is fumbled and it's Oakland who take advantage. Jarvis Landry loses control, and the Raiders take over near midfield.

Raiders 7, Dolphins 24 - SECOND QUARTER: 4 minutes, 3 second drive

It's getting ugly for the Raiders, as Miami travel 90 yards in nine plays to score their third TD of the game. Tannehill, who scrambled a couple of times on the drive, is now 17 from 19 with two touchdowns. This time he finds tight end Dion Sims for an 18-yard TD pass in the back corner, but he's spreading the ball around and picking the defence apart with ease.

Half-Time - Raiders 7, Dolphins 24

That's it for the first-half, and it's Miami who hold a commanding lead after 30 minutes. Ryan Tannehill has thrown two touchdowns and has 204 yards. Lamar Miller has 38 rushing yards and one TD.

For the Raiders, Derek Carr has thrown for one TD and 106 yards, but they've struggled to get anything going after a quick start.

BIG PLAY ALERT - Raiders recover fumble in redzone

Lamar Miller just fumbled at about the one-yard line, maybe even closer! He looked to be running in for another big Dolphins score, but coughed up the ball on a big hit and it was scooped up by the Raiders defence. Can that spark them into life?!?

Raiders 7, Dolphins 31 - THIRD QUARTER: 28 second drive

Forget that spark - Derek Carr throws a pick which is returned to the three-yard line and Miller doesn't make the same mistake twice, taking two attempts to get over the line. GAME...OVER

Raiders 7, Dolphins 38 - THIRD QUARTER

You have to wonder if this could get any worse for the Raiders. Derek Carr leaves with an injury, and then a horrendous snap is picked up by Cortland Finnegan, who runs the rest of the field for a TD. Shocking.

END OF THIRD QUARTER: Oakland Raiders 7, Miami Dolphins 38

We're 45 minutes into the action and it's a massacre. Ryan Tannehill has 247 yards and two TDs, Lamar Miller has two TDs and the Raiders have four turnovers. The scoreline is a fair one, the Raiders have been dreadful.

Raiders 14, Dolphins 38 - FOURTH QUARTER: 3 minute, 14 second drive

Some good news for Oakland at last, as Matt McGloin finds Andre Holmes in the endzone for their second TD of the game. The 22-yard pass finished a 90-yard drive for the sorry Raiders.
