5 Reasons the Miami Dolphins Will Prevail over the Cleveland Browns in Week 1

The Miami Dolphins and the rest of the NFL finally get down to playing real football as the Dolphins travel to Cleveland to take on the Browns this Sunday.

In the words of South Florida's most famous Northeast Ohio-native: "It's about damn time!"

Will the Dolphins be giving that answer to the question: "What do you think of making the playoffs for the first time since 2008?"

That will be answered later, but the first step to answering this question comes on Sunday.

The Dolphins will be facing a team in Cleveland that is very similar in recent history to them, and like the Dolphins, the Browns hope to turn their fortunes around with a great 2013 campaign.

The two teams are very similar in so many ways that this game is a tough one to prognosticate.

But the Dolphins not only can prevail in Cleveland on Sunday, they most likely will. Today we're going to look at the reasons why they will win.

Now in the interest of disclosure I'd like to point out that unlike last year (when I only wrote this slideshow when I felt the Dolphins would win), I will be writing this slideshow every week. Even for both games against New England will I point out why the Dolphins will prevail, even if I don't think they will.

Along with the five reasons I'll give saying why the Dolphins will win, one slide will be dedicated to why they might not (or in some cases won't) come away victorious.

Either way, this promises to be a fun slideshow that I'm hoping readers will look forward to every week in the same way that we will look forward to every Miami Dolphins game this season.

Hopefully this season lasts deep into January.

Let's begin.
