Visions of Trent Richardson running through the Dolphins defense, deftly setting up Brandon Weeden’s passing attack, vanished along with the Browns’ dreams of winning an opener for only the second time since the team returned in 1999.
Miami’s defensive line, which features two Pro Bowlers, lived up to its advance billing, stifling the Browns offense. Weeden threw for 289 yards, but he was sacked six times and threw three interceptions, including two by former Browns defensive back Dimitri Patterson.
Fans on Twitter were blowing up Oneil Cousins after the game, but he wasn’t even on the depth chart at guard when training camp started. Jason Pinkston and Shawn Lauvao should help at right guard when they return from their injuries.
The best news for Browns fans is that the Bengals, Steelers and Ravens also lost their openers. So as far as the chase for the AFC North title is concerned, it’s like the first week of the season never happened.
The Browns will hit the road next Sunday to face the Super Bowl Champion Baltimore Ravens.
