Miami Dolphins beat the Oakland Raiders 38-14 in their NFL regular season clash in front of a sell-out Wembley crowd.

Quarterback Ryan Tannehill hit form and pulled the strings as the Dolphins scored five touchdowns to secure their second win in four games.

The struggling Raiders failed to spark both offensively and defensively in London and remain winless this season.

Sunday's game was the first of three NFL matches scheduled to be played at Wembley in 2014.
