The Dolphins fell to 0-3 on the season today, as Colt McCoy and the Browns came from behind in the fourth quarter to beat the Dolphins 17-16.
McCoy’s 14-yard touchdown pass to Mohamed Massaquoi with 43 seconds left proved to be the game winner. The Dolphins got the ball back in Cleveland territory with 36 seconds left, but went four and out with three straight incompletions and a pick as they suffered a third consecutive loss to open the season.
Dolphins QB Chad Henne finished the day 19-of-29, with 255 yards, a touchdown pass to Daniel Thomas, and an interception on the final offensive play of the day. The issue, though, again, was the red zone–after the first quarter touchdown, the Dolphins continued to settle for field goals, which allowed Cleveland to stay in the game.
Next up: another tough road test, as the Dolphins must travel cross-country to take on the Chargers in San Diego.
