  • NFL Gen Stats Derek Carr's Week 3 Passing Chart

The Miami Dolphins had just tricked the Oakland Raiders one final time, and as Albert Wilson and Jakeem Grant sprinted side by side in the clear the final 30 yards toward the end zone for a clinching touchdown, they didn't wait to celebrate. The former Georgia State standout led Miami with 74 receiving yards with a touchd0wn reception on two catches.

"I said he better catch it, and he better not get tackled", Wilson said. "With the explosiveness we have, we just have to keep doing our job and not press".

One key for the Dolphins' success so far this season is their defense.

Oakland outgained the Dolphins, and Derek Carr threw for 345 yards.

Grant said the Dolphins work on the play every day in practice.

Following Howard's second interception, Wilson scooted around the end after taking Tannehill's short pitch and scored the clincher. Here are three things we learned from Sunday's end result. "They can throw it, they can run it".

Dolphins: Hayes (right knee) was hurt when he sacked Carr and missed the second half. DE Andre Branch hurt his knee in the second half. Derby (foot) also sat out the second half. LB Chase Allen suffered a foot injury in the first half.

For the third time in as many games, the Oakland Raiders blew a second-half lead and lost with a fourth-quarter collapse after a strong offensive start.

Raiders: T Donald Penn (concussion) and S Karl Joseph (lower leg) sat out the second half.

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 National Football League season, but that's exactly what veteran wide receiver Albert Wilson and company have done.

Only a late 52-yard field goal by Mike Nugent kept Oakland from remaining scoreless in the fourth quarter and joining the 2014 San Francisco 49ers as the last team to go scoreless in the final quarter of a season's first three games.

Dolphins: Play next Sunday at New England, where they've lost nine games in a row.

The Raiders have also lost seven straight, dating to last season - all with a suddenly risky and motivated Hue Jackson-led Cleveland Browns coming to Oakland next week.
