Miami Dolphins 39, Cleveland Browns 17 – The Denver Post


Quick thoughts from South Florida Sun Sentinel staffers on the Miami Dolphins’ win over the Cleveland Browns at Hard Rock Stadium on Sunday:

Chris Perkins, Dolphins Columnist

This was as close to that elusive complete game as the Dolphins have been this season. The blemishes were the missed extra points, and the 48-yard kickoff return to open the game. But the Dolphins continue to improve and played their best game of the season Sunday, which are good things heading into a bye week.

David Furones, Dolphins Writer

The Dolphins put together a complete performance where both the offense and defense stood up, showing you what this team can be when both are clicking. It wasn’t the shootouts the Dolphins had to win in Detroit or Chicago. They didn’t have to rely on the defense to pick up the offense, like against the Steelers. They combined another stellar outing from Tua Tagovailoa with a season-high rushing total and a solid defensive performance. Great way to go into the bye week.

Keven Lerner, Assistant Sports Editor

If the run game is going to hit this level, the Dolphins become a new level of potent on offense. They piled up more than 30 points despite unremarkable games by Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle. Tua Tagovailoa and his team are in full flight.

Steve Svekis, Sports Senior Content Editor

The Dolphins had their most complete performance of the season, with Tua Tagovailoa stringing together a third straight stellar performance. Plus, the run game really asserted itself. Miami heads to its week off at 7-3 for the first time since 2001.

This will be updated.
