Dolphins vs. Browns: 5 Things We Learned About Cleveland in 17-16 Win

It wasn't pretty. It was far from perfectly executed. And it was chock full of mistakes. But it was a hugely exciting and meaningful win for the Browns, as they beat the Dolphins in a 17-16 nail-biter. 

Trailing 16-10 with under two minutes to play, Colt McCoy made up for a very rough outing by engineering a nearly perfect 80-yard drive, capped off by a 14-yard touchdown pass to Mohamed Massaquoi that would wind up being the game-winner. 

And in spite of what was perhaps the most absurd and ludicrous excessive celebration penalty I have ever seen called, the defense completely stuffed Miami on its final possession and secured the victory. 

There was good, bad, and ugly for the Browns in this one. Let's take a look at five things we learned in the win, and please, feel free to celebrate (at least for the next few hours) that the Browns (albeit temporarily) are all alone in first place in the AFC North at 2-1.
