Once again, the Oakland Raiders couldn't keep the momentum rolling in the final frame, and after leading the Miami Dolphins 17-7, the Silver and Black ultimately fell on the road to Ryan Tannehill and Co., 28-20.
With the loss, the Raiders now fall to 0-3, but they'll have to dust themselves off in a hurry, as they're set to welcome a resurgent Cleveland Browns team Sunday afternoon at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.
We'll shift our attention to the Browns soon enough, but before we do that, let's take a look back at the playtime percentages from Week 3, and see what we can learn from the numbers.

Have a day, Jordy Nelson – First it was Jared Cook, then it was Amari Cooper, and Sunday was Jordy Nelson's day to feast. The veteran wide receiver played 55 offensive snaps (72%), and was ultra-effective during his time on the field, hauling in six catches for 173 yards, and his first touchdown as a Raider. Nelson's 173 receiving yards were the second most in a game of his career.
T.J. Clemmings is thrown into action – While Donald Penn started Sunday's game at Hard Rock Stadium, the veteran tackle was unable to finish it as he was put in the concussion protocol. In his stead, T.J. Clemmings – who joined the team September 2 – entered the mix on the right side of the offensive line, going the rest of the way, playing 58 snaps (76%) against the Dolphins.
The Beast finds the end zone – Three games, three touchdowns for Marshawn Lynch. The powerful running back has enjoyed a strong start to his second campaign in Silver and Black, and that positive momentum kept rolling for him Sunday afternoon at Hard Rock Stadium. In total, Lynch played 42 offensive snaps (55%), carrying the ball 19 times for 64 yards, and the aforementioned touchdown. As a whole, the Raiders ground game performed well in Miami, totaling 109 total yards.
Tahir Whitehead paces the defense – The only Raider who played every defensive snap – 44 in total – was Tahir Whitehead. The veteran linebacker finished the game with three total tackles.
Clinton McDonald fills up the stat sheet – Real quick, let's give some love to Clinton McDonald. The University of Memphis product has been a Raider for less than two weeks, but he's already proven to be a valuable addition to the defensive line. McDonald played 34 defensive snaps (77%) in Miami, and he filled up the stat sheet during his time on the field, totaling three tackles, one tackle for loss, one quarterback hit, and the team's lone sack of Week 3.
Leon Hall tallies another pass defensed – Every team needs players like Leon Hall. Since joining the Silver and Black this offseason, Hall has shown the ability to be versatile in what he does in Paul Guenther's defense, as well as provide tight coverage, and show up in critical moments. Against the Dolphins, Hall 33 snaps (75%), finishing his third game as a Raider with three tackles and a pass defensed.
