Dolphins vs. Browns: Takeaways from Miami's 23-10 Victory

The Miami Dolphins beat the Cleveland Browns this afternoon in an ugly, but convincing, victory. The Miami defense completely dominated, and the offense came through with two key touchdowns in the second half to pull away from a toothless Browns offense.

Though a plurality of prognosticators and fans inexplicably picked the Cleveland Browns to win this game, which resulted in the Las Vegas line moving from a straight pick all the way to the Browns favored by two points, this convincing victory by the Miami Dolphins should not come as any great surprise.

The Cleveland Browns were forced to play without the team’s most dynamic offensive playmaker, wide receiver Josh Gordon. They also had an even bigger hole at the right guard position than the Dolphins, due to injuries taken during the preseason. The Dolphins were not nearly as short-handed, and they were able to leverage their advantages into a two-touchdown margin of victory.

Many of my key takeaways from this game are going to reference things that I took note of during my live blog of the event. If, in the words of "The Dude" himself, “if you’re not into the whole brevity thing” then I recommend stopping in on the live blog and reading the blog entries from bottom-to-top for a good perspective on how the game unfolded.
