Full Week 1 Stat Predictions for the Miami Dolphins' Offense

The Miami Dolphins open the 2013 season with one of the more brutal opening stretches of any NFL team.

However, they begin that early stretch with the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, Aug. 8., in a game that is generally accepted to be the most winnable contest of Miami's first five. 

It's about this time where someone usually steps in to tell you not to overlook the Browns, and that's where I come in. The Browns had one of the more impressive defensive preseasons, according to Pro Football Focus (subscription required). 

The Dolphins finished with the second-highest overall defensive grade (48.5) in the preseason, trailing only the Seahawks. Cleveland's run defense was especially stingy, grading out at 31.5. That could spell trouble for the Dolphins, who are full of new offensive weapons trying to mesh in a starting offense that finally picked up steam near the end of the preseason. 

Miami's offense cannot succumb to lazy play against the Browns otherwise it could see itself starting the season at 0-1. We won't know until Sunday how well prepared Miami's offense truly is, but that won't stop me from giving you the Dolphins' full offensive statistical predictions for Week 1.
