The Miami Dolphins are looking to close in on a playoff berth that seemed improbable just a few months ago.
Unfortunately, they will be without one of their main pieces when they take the field against the Las Vegas Raiders on Saturday, as wide receiver DeVante Parker won’t be available to play.
Parker missed the Fins’ last game, a 22-12 win over the struggling New England Patriots. He’s currently nursing a bad hamstring.
The Dolphins are currently 9-5 and are currently clinging to the third and final wild card playoff spot in the AFC. They’re tied with the Baltimore Ravens, yet they hold the tiebreaker due to a superior record against other AFC teams this season.
Meanwhile, the Raiders are two full games behind at 7-7 and hoping to keep their playoffs chances alive, albeit faintly.
