Dolphins WR Albert Wilson thinks ‘no one’ can beat Miami if they keep doing what they’re doing
There weren’t a lot of people back in the offseason who thought that the Miami Dolphins were going to be undefeated through three weeks of this NFL season, but that’s exactly what veteran wide receiver Albert Wilson and company have done.
The Dolphins’ record remains unblemished, as the team improved to 3-0 after beating the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, 28-20. Wilson played an integral part in the victory. The former Georgia State standout led Miami with 74 receiving yards with a touchd0wn reception on two catches. He also launched a touchdown pass of his own when the Dolphins ran a trick play in the fourth quarter that resulted in a 52-yard touchdown grab by Jakeem Grant.
As the wins continue to pile up for Miami, its players also gain more confidence, which they are going to need as the season goes deeper. For Wilson, the key is to focus on their strengths and build on it, per Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.
“Just to worry about ourselves,” Wilson said. “If we keep doing what we can do, no one can beat us.”
One key for the Dolphins’ success so far this season is their defense. They are limiting opponents to only 17.3 points per game while also boasting a seventh-ranked run defense that allows just 89.0 rushing yards per contest. Although the Raiders were able to outgain Miami in terms of yards, 434-373, the Dolphins forced Oakland to commit two turnovers.
Albert Wilson and the Fins have a week left before playing what could be considered as their first true test of the season in the form of reigning AFC champions and divisional rivals, New England Patriots at Foxboro next Sunday.
