Browns And Dolphins Scoreless After One In Miami

The Browns got off to a good start today on defense, ending the Miami Dolphins’ first drive with a blocked field-goal attempt after Miami gathered three first downs out of the chute.

The Browns then went three-and-out, giving the Dolphins the ball back at the Miami 18 after a punt. The Browns stopped the Dolphins near midfield and got the ball back with a little more than five minutes to go in the quarter — after a Miami punt — at the Cleveland six-yard line.

Peyton Hillis gave the Browns better field position with a first-down run, but Cleveland once again stalled, and the second punt of the game for the Browns gave Miami the ball at the Dolphins’ 30.

Miami’s running game got rolling again, and a Chad Henne short pass moved Miami to midfield. An incompletion left the Dolphins with 4th and one at the Cleveland 49, Miami chose not to risk it, and punted again to the Browns as the scoreless quarter wound down.

Jake Delhomme in 3-of-4 but for only 11 yards after the opening quarter, while Peyton Hillis has 16 yards on four carries. Miami has five first downs, and the Browns have been held to one
