The Miami Dolphins face a major test in their bid to return to the NFL playoffs when they travel to Las Vegas to face the Raiders on Saturday night.

Kickoff is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. ET.

The Dolphins (9-5) currently hold the AFC's seventh and final playoff spot. Miami is coming off a 22-10 win over the Patriots that eliminated New England from the postseason. Running back Myles Gaskin will join rookie Salvon Ahmed in the backfield after being activated from the COVID-19 list. 

The Raiders (7-7) need to win out to have a chance at making the playoffs. Derek Carr was injured early in last week's overtime loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. If he cannot play Saturday, Heisman Trophy winner and former No. 2 overall draft pick Marcus Mariota would start.
