Preston Williams gave Miami its first victory of the year.
Nobody expected the 2019 season to be pretty for the Miami Dolphins. At the same time, nobody expected a 59-10 blowout by the Ravens in week 1.
The Dolphins, the NFL’s youngest team, was expected to have a few bright spots while tanking away the 2019 season.
Preston Williams, an undrafted rookie from Colorado State, is continuing to make a case as a diamond in the rough.
After an impressive preseason and training camp, Williams finished his first regular season game with three catches for 24 yards, including this saucy touchdown grab before halftime.
Two feet in. First career touchdown for @Thresort.

“If you’re looking for small victories, that’s about it,” quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick said of the catch.
Fitzpatrick, the 16-year NFL vet, finished his first start by going 14/29 for 185 yards including one touchdown and one interception. Look for Fitzpatrick to continue to target Williams as the Dolphins will play from behind for most of the season.
