WHEN MIAMI HAS THE BALL: I think the Fins will want to establish the run early and set up the play action pass to Wallace. I could see Brandon Gibson with a nice 7-9 reception game working the middle of the field and moving the chains consistently. Tannehill protected the football very well in the preseason and had almost no turnovers, if that continues into the regular season then it will be a very big deal for this Dolphins offense. The Browns are an above average defensive team and I have seen some rankings and experts say they have a Top 10 or even a Top 5 NFL defense. I think Lamar Miller will come close to 100 yards (but fall a little short) and I think Wallace and Gibson have big games
WHEN MIAMI IS ON DEFENSE: The Browns offensive line is good but they are a little weak at guard right now due to injuries. I can see the Dolphins blitzing a lot, a real lot. Coyle will dial up the pressure early and often to try and rattle Weeden. Cleveland doesn't have great WR's especially with Josh Gordon suspended. Davone Bess is starting for them...nuff said! Trent Richardson is a great running back but the strength of the Fins defense is the rush defense. No Jamar Taylor, No Will Davis, and Dimitri Patterson might sit out as well or play very limited due to an injury so I would not be shocked to see the Browns attack the Miami corners. Which means the pass rush must be spot on today to rattle Weeden. If Weeden has time to throw he will have success vs a depleated Miami secondary.
This game will be close I think and it could go either way. The Browns seem to have a black cloud hanging over this franchise and is very snake bitten. I see that continuing... MIAMI 23 CLEVELAND 16
