While it wasn't all sunshine and rainbows in the Miami Dolphins 23-10 season-opening victory over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, their first opening day victory since 2010 at Buffalo, there were a lot of positives and some negatives. The 23 rushes for 20 yards stuck out as a sore spot, but the play of Charles Clay at the tight end position was encouraging for Miami as was the maturation of quarterback Ryan Tannehill and the three forced turnovers from a defense that took the ball away just 16 times all last season. As nice as it is for the Dolphins to be 1-0 with a brutal upcoming schedule, Sunday afternoon belonged to the defensive line.

Expected to be one of the brighter spots for a team with playoff aspirations in 2013, the Miami Dolphins defensive line far from disappointed on Sunday. The Dolphins finished the afternoon with six sacks and kept pressure on Cleveland's second-year quarterback, Brandon Weeden, ...

This past Sunday, the Miami Dolphins did something that head coach Joe Philbin has preached from the beggining of the offseason, force turnovers and win the turnover battle. After finishing near dead last in forcing turnovers last season, the Dolphins showed up Sunday with three big interceptions in the first quarter that led to a measly three points.
While most Dolphins fans...
Coming into the 2013 season we heard how the Browns coaching staff was planning to run the shoes off of their 2012 number one draft pick the man many think is a beast Trent Richardson. In the season opener against the Miami Dolphins the Browns had Trent Richardson carry the ball 13 times for a total of 47 yards. That’s not only terrible it is an embarrassment to Richardson who...

After week one ESPn has him ranked next to dead last. There is only one quarterback int he NFL with a worse T.Q.R. than Brandon Weeden according to the ESPN ranking system.

Ryan Tannehill passed for 272 yards and a touchdown, leading the Miami Dolphins to a season-opening 23-10 win Sunday over the Cleveland Browns, who fell to 1-14 in Week 1 since 1999.
Tannehill, who was given more offensive weapons for his second NFL season, threw a 34-yard TD pass to Brian Hartline in the third quarter and drove the Dolphins to a game-clinching TD in the fourth...
So far I have to say, Rob Chudzinksi makes a much better fan than a head coach for the Cleveland Browns. He has a serious problem evaluating talent. It started in camp when he prematurely named the teams starting quarterback and it carried over into the first regular season game when he named Oniel Cousins to start on the offensive line. If this is the kind of coach Jimmy Haslam...

The Miami Dolphins took care of business on the road in Cleveland as they beat the Browns 23-10 in the 2013 regular season opener.

After a strange few days for the runningback Dennis Johnson, he will finally land on his feet. He was signed as an undrafted free agent to the Houston Texans before getting cut during the final cuts. He was claimed by the Cleveland Browns but later cut. Well it seems he has cleared through waivers and […]
The Cleveland Browns came into this season with more optimism than they have had in several years. That went away very quickly as the the whole team looked awful in the opener. Brandon Weeden, the key to the season, was supposed to be more confident and effective in Norv Turner's offense. Instead, he was indecisive and nervous in the pocket. He made bad decisions all day and...
It isn’t that difficult to see the Browns defense is much improved this season when it comes to stopping the run. They improved so much in this area that Browns Line-Backer, D’Qwell Jackson said, nobody can run on us. Jackson’s theory is going to be put to the test come Sunday when the Browns travel to Baltimore to take on the Ravens. The Ravens have a little guy by the name...
Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden took a pounding in Sunday's opener. He absorbed a few more shots the day after.
