Browns Put Up a Fight; Fall in OT to the Dolphins 30-24

Cleveland Browns v Miami Dolphins

Jay Ajayi got a second chance, and so did the Miami Dolphins.

They made the most of both.

Ajayi scored on an 11-yard run with 8:26 left in overtime, and the Dolphins escaped with a 30-24 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday — the first victory for first-year head coach Adam Gase.

“We come out here in our first game and showcase to our home fans what we’re about, and offensively we’re out there flopping it around,” said Gase, who was in no celebratory mood afterward. “It irritated me a little bit.”

Ajayi’s game-winner came one play after Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill found a wide-open Jarvis Landry for a 32-yard gain, as the Dolphins (1-2) avoided what would be their first 0-3 start since 2011.

Browns Rookie WR Corey Coleman Breaks Hand in Practice

Corey Coleman

The Browns suffered another huge blow Wednesday when first-round pick Corey Coleman broke a hand in practice, a league source told Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

He was injured when he caught a pass and someone came down on the hand. Practice is only open to the media for the first 20 minutes and it happened after that.

It’s not yet known which hand was injured or its severity. The Browns declined to confirm the report. He underwent X-rays after practice, which confirmed the break.

Coleman, the No. 15 overall pick out of Baylor, is coming off a breakout game in which he caught he caught two touchdown passes and totaled 104 yards on five receptions.

Browns Can’t Hold Early Lead; Fall to Ravens 25-20

Browns Ravens

The Ravens were in a huge hole and about to be buried.

Joe Flacco dug them out.

Flacco threw two touchdown passes to wide receiver Mike Wallace and Baltimore, sparked by returning a blocked extra point, rallied from 20 down and beat the Cleveland Browns 25-20 on Sunday.

Justin Tucker kicked three field goals — the last with 2:56 left — and the Ravens (2-0), who were down by nearly three touchdowns less than 10 minutes into the game, withstood Cleveland’s final drive to improve to 15-2 against the Browns under coach John Harbaugh.

In his second game back after undergoing knee surgery that ended his 2015 season, Flacco again showed why he’s one of the NFL’s top quarterbacks and one of the game’s most unflappable leaders.

Browns Beat Up by Eagles; Fall in Season Opener 29-10 in Philadelphia

Cleveland Browns v Philadelphia Eagles

In their first game of the NFL regular season, the Cleveland Browns fell short against the rookie QB Carson Wentz led Philadelphia Eagles with the final score of 29-10.

The game started off rough for the Cleveland defense as Wentz led a 75 yard drive that was capped off with a 19 yard touchdown pass to WR Jordan Matthews to get the early lead 7-0. Wentz looked impressive in his first drive going four for five completions and 47 yards. The Browns defense looked like a young team as there were missed tackles and miscommunication in the first drive.

Robert Griffin III and the Browns offense did the exact opposite of what the Eagles offense did as they couldn’t do anything in the first half. The front four of the Eagles defensive line is highly respected around the league and you could see why as they were putting pressure on RGIII and not letting any of the Browns running backs produce any big gains.
