The Dolphins, who were only at 0-2 in 1988 when they went on to finish 6-10, don't intend of repeating the mistakes that cost them last Sunday against the Houston Texans.
"I'm not even looking at 0-2," said defensive end Adewale Ogunleye. "I know after this game, we will be 1-1. I'm not even looking at being 0-2. It's not even in the back of my mind. We will be 1-1 after this game and hopefully go on upward from there."
