Gallery: The best images from Wembley as the Miami Dolphins beat the Oakland Raiders

American Football - NFL

The Miami Dolphins beat the Oakland Raiders 38-14 at Wembley Stadium as the 2014 NFL International Series kicked off.

The NFL's commitment to expanding the game in the UK continues this season, with three games announced at Wembley Stadium as part of the International Series - and the first of those games was on Sunday as the Miami Dolphins took on the Oakland Raiders in London.

With fixtures between the Atlanta Falcons and Detroit Lions as well as the Dallas Cowboys and Jacksonville Jaguars still to come in October and November respectively, the enthusiasm surrounding American Football in Britain continues to grow, and that was on display on Sunday too.

The game itself saw the winless Raiders get off to a positive start with rookie quarterback Derek Carr impressing, but the Dolphins' eventually got themselves in control of the game as quarterback Ryan Tannehill put a difficult week behind him with two touchdown passes.

Tannehill, the eighth overall pick back in the 2012 Draft, has come under increasing pressure after two successive defeats, and Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin hinted that he may bench the former Texas A&M star in the coming weeks. It was therefore imperative that Tannehill used the trip to London to kickstart his season, and he went 23/31 attempts, with 278 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.

Raiders head coach Dennis Allen is staring down the barrel at this point, with his Raiders side still looking for their first win after a torrid start to the new campaign. The 'Just Win, Baby' mentality during the Al Davis era hasn't been mirrored by this generation of Raiders, who haven't had a winning season since 2002.

After an action packed evening at Wembley, here are some of the best images from the game - with just under a month to wait until the next NFL fixture at Wembley.
