Dolphins beat Browns 30-24 in overtime

The Dolphins won this one in overtime when Jay Ajayi went 11 yards for a touchdown. And the crowd roared.

And Miami is 1-2.

But, here comes the ugly truth part, nothing about this game was inspiring if you are a Dolphins fan. Nothing about this game should make anyone feel great about the Miami Dolphins.


The Browns botched three makeable field goals -- by the kicker they signed two hours ago because their starting kicker got hurt Friday in practice. The third of those, from 46 yards out, sailed short and left as time ran out.

It would have given the Browns the victory.

The Browns defense gave up ground. Because they also had multiple players out due to injury and, lest you forget, Jamar Taylor is starting in the secondary and he's not good. And yet the Dolphins made him look like a solid player. He had an interception. He had a pass defensed on third down late that caused him to dance on the field.

And yet when the game went into overtime, Cleveland coach Hue Jackson won the coin toss ... and elected to kick off.

Talk about disrespect.

Talk about no on wanting to win this game.

The Dolphins defense was good in overtime. But, again, during four quarters of play, that unit again played bad enough to lose.

The Dolphins get their first victory at Hard Rock Stadium. They get their first home victory of the season. They get the first victory of Adam Gase's career.

I'm not feeling it, folks. Sorry.
