Final Update: The Miami Dolphins have beaten the Cleveland Browns. In the end, the Browns offense was toothless without wide receiver Josh Gordon. He was a key cog in their preseason success and was also responsible for much of the success the team enjoyed in 2012.

Both teams showed a lot of issues on their offensive line and ground games. The Dolphins had reliable receivers like Brian Hartline, Brandon Gibson and Mike Wallace to help quarterback Ryan Tannehill keep the offense rolling on scoring drives. The Browns had tight end Jordan Cameron and slot receiver Davone Bess, but that was not enough. Once the Dolphins were able to get far enough ahead on the scoreboard, they were able to put a lot of pressure on a Browns offense forced to drop back into predictable pass drops.
