Miami Dolphins vs Cleveland Browns takes place on Sunday as the NFL 2013 Season gets underway for both teams. It's important for teams to get off to a positive start and both teams here will want to gain good wins to kick-start their seasons. The game starts at 1 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream (details below).
Running back Lamar Miller will likely look to take the game to the Browns by running hard and straight. He will be hoping that the Dolphins' zone blocking scheme can do a good job and give him room to devastate the Browns defensive line.
He has had a spotty preseason in which he lost a fumble and dropped two swing passes when he was open, and will be hoping for more consistent form now we are down to the real business of the regular season.
Meanwhile the Browns will be sending out Trent Richardson to challenge the Dolphins' defense. Miami were troubled last year, finishing just 13th in run defense and allowing 4.0 yards per carry.
The Browns will be looking to exploit that, and Richardson will likely be a big part of their game plan. He averages about 19 carries per game, so he will be leading the rush, and if he can be effective the Dolphins could be set for a long afternoon.
For Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill, he will likely try to optimize his three-receiver formations, utilizing Mike Wallace, Brandon Gibson and Brian Hartline.
Opposite him, Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden will not have his best target available to him, after wide receiver Josh Gordon was given a two-game suspension for violating the league's performance-enhancing drugs policy.
